Among industrial welding processes, orbital TIG welding has become a well-established method, although there is still a consider- able lack of information about the various possibilities of this challenging technique. Aerospace industry, aviation, high speed trains, nuclear industry, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, tiny microelectronic devices - to name but a few of the most exciting applications - rely on orbital weld- ing, but the equipment to ensure our daily supply of electric current, oil and gas also depends on orbital welding techniques.
In this booklet, basic information is pro- vided about the orbital weld process and the related equipment: technical approach, advantages, common and special applica- tions, but also restrictions and limits. To give practical examples, the text is illustrated by numerous application examples.
Tables and designs can help engineers and welding experts, as well as project managers, to get quick answers as to whether orbital welding could offer solutions corresponding to their needs.
