Increasing Weld Penetration with Unique Process Can Improve GTAW
By Rebecca Gurk on Friday, August 11th, 2017
Ian Harris, EWI Technical Director of Aerospace Solutions, recently published an article titled Detailing DeepTIG: How Increased Weld Penetration Can Improve GTAW Results. Co-authored with Yehuda Baskin and Philip A. Baskin, the article appears in the July-August 2017 issue of Practical Welding Today.
A patented process called EWI DeepTIG uses specialized metal oxides to increase weld penetration in gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). It uses proprietary oxide formulations which, when applied to the surface of the workpieces to be joined, increases weld penetration and consequently enhances process productivity. It has been shown to improve weld penetration in GTAW by up to 300 percent.
