About TIP TIG

What is TIP TIG?

The TIP TIG welding process, invented and patented by Siegfried Plasch in Austria in 1999, derives its name from the combination of the German acronym “Technologie Ingenieur Plasch,” meaning “Technology of Engineer Plasch,” and TIG, which stands for Tungsten Inert Gas.

The unique process combines the precision of TIG welding with a dynamic wire feed mechanism, resulting in a much more efficient and precise welding process.
TIP TIG has quickly become a widely accepted and sought-after global welding standard, known for its high-quality welds and ability to reduce overall welding time.
Our equipment is all developed and produced in-house in Austria, enabling us to focus strictly on research and development, allowing us to continue to innovate and improve the TIP TIG process.

The cold wire TIG process is susceptible to arc length and often results in the wire not melting consistently in the arc plasma. This results in a deposition rate similar to traditional manual TIG welding, with no increase in productivity or weld speed. On the other hand, TIP TIG enables a much higher deposition rate, up to 300% more weld wire, resulting in faster weld speeds and lower heat input. This increased deposition rate also allows for higher weld current and energy, which in combination with the agitated weld pool and lower heat, provides numerous benefits in terms of weld quality, productivity, and cost efficiency.

The hot wire process requires Arc Voltage Control due to its sensitivity to arc length, making it less suitable for manual TIG welding. TIP TIG, on the other hand, overcomes this issue and allows for higher wire feed rates and improved weld quality. The reduced sensitivity to arc length in TIP TIG makes it a suitable process for manual welding and welding automation.

Increasing TIG weld speeds results in a weld with low voltage, which, combined with faster travel rates, reduces the heat input. Unlike other manual welding processes that use reverse polarity, where the majority of heat is concentrated in the arc zone, TIP TIG uses electrode negative, which disperses the plurality of heat into the base metal, acting as a heat sink.

The TIP TIG process offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Welding alloys and code-quality welds
  • Reduced distortion and stresses
  • Clean welds with minimal porosity
  • Improved mechanical and corrosion properties
  • Compatibility with multiple welding processes
  • Reduced labor costs and the need for specialized welding skills
  • Welds that do not require cleaning
  • Minimized weld fumes

The TIP TIG process can provide significant cost savings compared to traditional TIG welding.

For example, assuming an average hourly labor rate of $100, filler wire at $6.55 per pound, and gas at $0.12 per cubic feet per hour, welding a standard 6-inch Schedule 40 pipe with TIP TIG can save an average of $200 compared to TIG. This means that it would take welding around 75 joints to pay for the TIP TIG system. With TIG, a standard 6″ Schedule 40 pipe would require 2.7 hours of labor time, 1.1 hours of arc on time, and 1 pound of filler wire, which would cost about $282. Meanwhile, TIP TIG requires 0.7 hours of work time, 0.3 hours of arc on time, and 0.86 pounds of filler wire, costing around $79.

Similarly, welding a 12-inch Schedule 80 pipe with TIP TIG would only require ten joints to pay for the system, with about $1500 saved per welded pipe. With TIG, the process would require 21 hours of work, 8.3 hours of arc on time, and 8 pounds of filler wire, costing roughly $2160. TIP TIG would only need 5.5 hours of work, 2.5 hours of arc-on time, and 6.56 pounds of filler wire, costing around $600. This illustrates a significant cost difference and drastically changes the time and resource allocation.
