The following is an educated guess.

240 Volts is 240 Volts.

Unless the equipment inherently depends on some aspect of the frequency for operation [50 hertz instead of 60 hertz], it should work if you simply change the plug.

Wiring circuit for 240V welder with 3 prong plug pulling 6-3 wire do you need to replace welder cable with a 4 lead cable-plug or can you avoid the white lead to wire a 3 prong outlet red-black-green?

It depends on the welder. If it doesn't need 120V you can just put a wire nut on the neutral and wire a 240V plug. If it needs 120/240V you need the 4 prong plug. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.If you do this work yourself, always turn off the powerat the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work ANDalways use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Can you operating 240v 60hz single phase electric kiln on 240v 50hz single phase power supply system?

If the kiln is strictly a resistance heating element, with no motor, then yes, it should work fine. Warning: the opposite, that is running a 240V 50hz (European) appliance from US 240V 60hz mains is very dangerous and should not be attempted. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use a meter or voltage indicatorto insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

I have tried this before but the only way to do it is to rewire it so not only will it work were you live but also in a different region. If you have no idea how to rewire something, then give it to a place that sells or fixes your console. Just tell them you want it to work in this region.
