TIP TIG is a semi-automatic high deposition metal transfer (HDMT®) variant of the manual TIG welding (GTAW) process. As opposed to the manual GTAW process, in TIP
TIG, the continuously fed and sinusoidal stimulated preheated filler metal improves very significantly the deposition rate. The wire feeder includes a filler wire agitation mechanism that
improves the dynamics of the molten weld pool. The agitation appeared to increase fluidity of the weld puddle and help break up impurities and release evolving gases for reduced risk of
inclusions and porosity.
Welding equipment that uses the TIP TIG process are in fact TIG systems. Our patented wire feed system induces a vibration on the filler wire and add a hot wire current on the welding wire
prior to entering the weld puddle. The vibratory effect comes from a sinusoidal agitation applied mechanically using a 4-Roll wire drive unit. The hot wire current is created by a secondary
power source within the TIP TIG wire feeders.
The TIP TIG welding process is applicable on most TIG needing techniques and on alloys like Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Duplex and Super Duplex Stainless Steels, Inconel, Stellite, Titanium,
Aluminum, Hastelloy, Copper Nickel, Nickel Chrome Alloys.
The core application of the TIP TIG process is attaining a higher speed and increasing productivity of welds by enabling semi-automation.
