ADF armoured vehicle welding – 100 times faster with K-TIG

Armed with patented technology that welds thicker components 100 times faster than traditional welding, K-TIG (ASX: KTG) offers deadline-focused production lines a major competitive advantage. 

Armed with patented technology that welds thicker components 100 times faster than traditional welding, K-TIG (ASX: KTG) offers deadline-focused production lines a major competitive advantage. 

Of all the challenging production deadlines, land, air and sea defence projects must be near the most pressing.  

K-TIG has teamed up with serial defence contractors, Axiom Precision Manufacturing and Bisalloy Steels (ASX: BIS) to develop a sovereign capability to weld the specialised steel components used by the Australian Defence Forces, such as the LAND400 armoured vehicle project worth AUD $10-$15 billion.

The company has long been associated with the Australian defence industry, having won the 2015 DTC Defence Industry Innovation Award for their welding technology developments.

K-TIG’s Non-Executive Director Adrian Smith joined us last week for our weekly ‘Meet The CEOs’ webcast for a chat about the company. 

‘We are a disruptor,’ Smith said in the webcast. ‘We fundamentally changed the economics of fabrication.’

For example, a traditional welding job that might take 6 hours and cost $360. K-TIG using their proprietary welding system can perform the same job in just 3 minutes, which cost just $3. 

Smith continued to say ‘We’re not the back-yard welder guys, we’re on the high-volume, precision welding side of the market. So people like Siemens, GEC and the nuclear industry are the sort of customers that deal with our product.’
