A multi-process welding solution for pipelines and pressure vessels

Kemppi K7 Welding equipment Read more


In pipe welding, the quality demands are high and productivity expectations can be even higher. When we are talking about thousands and thousands of welds in oil & gas pipelines, water pipelines, or pressure vessels, even a small increase in quality and productivity will count – and we promise you a big one. This setup provides even five times faster welding with better quality. What more can you ask for?

We assembled the perfect setup for high-quality pipe welding, including root welding from one side. Scroll down to learn more. If you would like to get familiar with the whole Kemppi FastMig X concept, visit the FASTMIG X FAMILY SITE.

High-quality from the root to the top

This setup is customized specifically to meet all the needs of demanding pipe welding. Other key applications of the FastMig X Pipe include any welding tasks that require sheet welding from one side, such as pressure vessels, tanks, and heat exchangers. This setup can handle harsh weather conditions, including excessive heat, cold, salt, and dust. The high quality hardware is just the start. What truly makes the FastMig X Pipe setup a highly proficient system are its inbuilt special processes, welding programs and functions.

The best root welding you've ever seen

Our calculations show that with the WiseRoot+ application you can weld over 80 % more every day, and save up to 50 % in labor and filler costs. WiseRoot+ is a customized MIG/MAG process for root welding without backing. The WiseRoot+ process is based on precise voltage measurement and current control. It enables root pass welding in all positions, including vertical downhill and welding with or without an air gap. The voltage detecting cable ensures that you get accurate information from the arc. Despite the incredible capabilities it is easy to use; only two parameter regulations are needed.

Faster, better welding, with a focused arc

When welding process is stable and easy to handle, it has a positive effect on the weld quality. WiseFusion is a special process for synergic MIG/MAG and pulsed arc welding. It keeps the welding arc focused so that the arc density concentrates in a narrow area. It provides better penetration and faster travel speed. In addition to that, lower deformations in the welded material means less straightening work, saving time and money.

Double the flexibility

An amazing range of special processes, welding programs, and functions together with easy adjustability and upgradability allow for faster responses to changing needs. This means less waiting, less adjusting, and more profitable welding. It enables you to connect two, or even three, wire feeders so that changes can be made quickly to the welding process, to the settings, or the different types of filler wires. Never let your equipment determine what you can or can’t do.

Matching high product quality with superior service

FastMig X is fully compatible with the world's most comprehensive welding management software, WeldEye. Among other things, it monitors compliance to the WPS, ensures that welders have appropriate qualifications, and collects quality documentation. The Kemppi worldwide service network also ensures immediate support and consultation. Weld more, produce more, and profit more with the FastMig X.

The FastMig X Family

Whatever your high-quality multi-process welding needs may be, FastMig X is the solution you're looking for. FastMig X is not one standard machine. It’s a flexible setup of high-quality components, which you can always select to precisely match your welding needs.
