To improve the deposition rate we induce a vibratory effect on the welding wire and apply hot wire current on the filler metal before it even enters the weld puddle. The vibration 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 agitation appeared to increase the fluidity of the weld puddle and help break up impurities and release evolving gases for reduced risk of inclusions and porosity.
The TIP TIG welding process is applicable on most TIG needing welding techniques and on alloys like Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Duplex and Super Duplex Stainless Steels, Inconel, Stellite, Titanium, Hastelloy, Copper Nickel, Nickel Chrome Alloys, 9% Nickel Steel for LNG applications and aluminum welding.
Welding equipment that uses the TIP TIG process are in fact TIG welders. The core application TIP TIG is attaining a higher weld speed and increasing your weld production.
