Metal inert gas (MIG) welding, also referred to as gas metal arc welding (GMAW), is a process of arc welding in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool in order to join the two base materials together. Shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun to protect the weld pool from contamination.
Advantages of MIG welding include:
- Adaptable to Robotic Automation
- All Position Capability
- Long Welds can be made without Starts and Stops
- Minimal Post Weld Cleaning is Necessary
- Higher Deposition Rates than SMAW
- Gain Extra Life out of a Product
- Simple to Learn
- Easy to Use
MIG Welding Industries and Materials
MIG welding allows the home-hobbyist, artist, farmer/rancher, Motorsports enthusiast or DIY welder to make a majority of fabrication and maintenance/repair welds on material from 24-gauge up to 1/2-inch thick. In addition to flexibility, many people choose MIG welding because it is a relatively simple process to learn.
Typical metals that MIG welding is used on includes:
- Stainless Steel
