TIP TIG Welding Process

  • TIP TIG an innovative non‐consumable electrode arc welding (TIG welding) process with dynamic wire feeding movement
  • TIP TIG CW (ColdWire!) ‐ welding system consists of microprocessors controlled wire feeder with dynamic effect, interconnecting hose package, welding torch and transformer 230/28V.
  • TIP TIG HW (HotWire!) – semi‐automatic arc welding machine consists of microprocessors controlled welding inverter, device for preheating of wire, wire feeder with dynamic effect, interconnecting hose package, welding torch and transformer 230/28V

The TIP TIG power source provides the hot wire current. The unique TIP TIG wire feeder and water cooled TIG torch feeds the hot wire into the TIG arc. The TIP TIG weld arc is provided by a regular TIG power source.

In contrast to regular TIG or Hot Wire TIG, the TIP TIG wire entering the TIG weld pool is mechanically superimposed with an action from the patented wire feed motion that creates a vibration on the weld wire.

The TIP TIG wire is constantly directed to the center of the fluid weld pool, and the wire vibration agitates the weld driving the most fluid part of the weld outwards towards the cooler weld periphery. The TIP TIG mechanical weld action dramatically changes the weld surface tension and dynamics and reduces the sensitivity to the weld receiving the weld wire.

TIP TIG WELD QUALITY BENEFITS:

In contrast to the manual pulsed MIG, regular TIG or the automated Hot and Cold wire TIG processes, irrespective of the alloys welded, the patent pending TIP TIG process has the potential to consistently provide superior quality welds with improvements in mechanical and corrosion properties.

TIP TIG WELD COST BENEFITS:

A great weld cost benefit to all weld shops that use TIG for high quality welds is the TIP TIG process will typically deliver manual and automated TIG welds with a 100 to 400% increase in weld deposition rates.

Controlled tig wire feed rates and unique tig weld agitation creates a domino affect: The increase in the TIP TIG weld fluid area reduces the weld sensitivity to both manual and automated weld wire delivery. The higher than normal TIP TIG wire feed rates enables higher TIG weld current. The higher weld current combined with the TIP TIG Hot Wire current and agitated, slower solidifying weld provides numerous weld benefits never before attained.

TIP TIG PROCESS BENEFITS

  • TIP TIG is the only manual process that has the potential to consistently produce zero weld defects on any application and any alloy.
  • Manual TIP TIG is typically 100 – 200% faster than TIG for all position pipe fill passes and 200 – 400% faster for none pipe applications.
  • The regular Hot Wire TIG process is not suited for manual welding, in contrast the TIP TIG process delivers the ultimate in both manual / automated weld quality. TIP TIG also reduces the sensitivity of the automated Hot Wire process to low to medium current weld wire delivery.
  • TIP TIG, one single optimum weld process for any metal, any weld, and any weld position. TIP TIG will require only 2 or 3 simple common weld settings for all global weld applications.
  • On many stainless open root tank and vessel welds, with TIP TIG, no back gouging, no grinding and often no high volume purge gas is required.
  • In contrast to all weld processes, TIP TIG will produce the least weld fumes and fume removal equipment on most stainless and alloy applications will not be required.
