Sustainable Fusing with TIG Welding

It’s true; becoming a TIG tool professional is a wise choice not only for yourself but also for the environment. This may seem as a surprise to you, but TIG welding has a lot more to offer more than the accuracy and quality welds it’s known for.

Use of fewer materials

Tungsten Inert Gas or TIG welding promotes a sustainable environment by consuming less energy. Welding sustainable products like cars and planes make them a lot easier to recycle too. Because of the precision that TIG welding makes possible, lighter and thinner materials can be used, thereby reducing the required raw material and contributing to a greener environment.

The welding industry demands precision and a stable welding process. This is where the TIG procedure becomes beneficial. It can produce steady, high-quality welds that make the process automatized. That means the process is economically sustainable as it yields top-class quality products.

Safe working environment

Hazardous working conditions can also be evaded because of the sustainable process of TIG. A safe environment is possible because TIG welding doesn’t produce sparks or spatters because only the required amount of filler metal is added to the welding puddle.

The process also keeps the air clean by not creating fumes or smoke. Of course, this is only possible if the base metal being welded has no oil, grease, lead, paint, or zinc.

K-TIG technology

TIG welding has also given birth to a recently developed welding process called K-TIG. Keyhole Tungsten Inert Gas or K-TIG paves the way for the environmental sustainability in the welding industry. It’s a cutting-edge technology that’s proven to lessen welding, as well as fabricating costs, by an average of 80 percent. This welding process utilizes single pass, high-speed, and full-penetration welding application which removes the need for wire, edge-beveling, or skilled operators. As a variant of TIG welding, we can say that it’s good for both the industry and the environment.

If industrial fabrication is a highly energy-intensive process that consumes a lot of electricity, gas, and consumables, how does this new process meet its desire to decrease carbon footprint and energy consumption?

Well, K-TIG does so by offering superior efficiency and speed advantage that’s up to 100x faster than the TIG process we were used to. This signifies that gas and energy consumption are brought down by up to 95 percent. Unbelievable, isn’t? K-TIG is way more accurate than TIG and needs fewer consumables to create exceptional and jaw-dropping results that can exceed the expectations of your customers. K-TIG is one sustainable welding process that defines “the use of less waste.”

Compared to the traditional welding process, K-TIG has arrived at a welding revolution that aims for sustainability. It offers quicker welding speeds with better precision while using less gas, energy, and materials.

Fuse materials sustainably using the TIG welding process today and be part of the sustainability movement!
