Company Overview

K-TIG is the developer and manufacturer of a patented, high productivity welding technology known as Keyhole TIG.

The productivity impact of Keyhole TIG is considerable.
A K-TIG system is able for perform a conventional 6-hour TIG weld in 10 inch schedule 40 stainless steel pipe in 4 minutes, and to a quality standard which meets the most demanding requirements of the nuclear, aerospace & defence industries.

In addition to 50x to 100x productivity advantages over TIG/GTAW, the K-TIG technology reduces power and gas consumption by up to 95% and dramatically reduces labour costs.

Unlike conventional welding, K-TIG does not require edge bevelling and typically eliminates the need for wire consumables.

Overall cost savings are routinely in excess of 90%.

K-TIG was recently awarded Australian Industrial Innovation of the Year, and the 2015 Defence Industry Innovator Award.
