What is TIP TIG?

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 automatic TIG wire feeder includes a filler wire agitation mechanism that improves the dynamics of the molten weld pool. 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.

Welding equipment that uses the TIP TIG process are in fact TIG welders. Our patented wire feed system induces a vibration on the filler wire and adds 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, Hastelloy, Copper Nickel, Nickel Chrome Alloys and for aluminum welding.

The core application of the TIP TIG process is attaining a higher speed and increasing the productivity of welds by enabling semi-automation.

How it works

The unique TIP TIG weld dynamic slows down the weld solidification process and enlarges the fluid weld area. The TIP TIG weld changes, improve the TIG weld receptivity for higher weld deposition rates. TIP TIG typically enables a 100% to 400% increase in TIG wire feed rates which also allows higher weld current to be used. The resulting faster TIP TIG weld speeds and higher than normal TIG weld energy enables numerous TIG weld quality and productivity benefits.

Why we’re different

TIP TIG is the only semi-automatic weld process capable of consistently producing optimum, all position code quality welds on carbon steels or any alloy applications without concern for weld rework and without concern for the effects of weld heat on the alloys welded. TIP TIG is the only process capable of delivering the highest possible weld energy with the unusual benefit of also providing the lowest possible weld heat.

What does TIP TIG mean?

We have been asked many times what does “TIP TIG” mean.
Here is the answer:

TIP is German and means „Technologie Ingenieur Plasch“ which means translated to English „Technology of Engineer Plasch“

TIG means “Tungsten Inert Gas”.
