Otherwise known as Metal Inert Gas welding, MIG welding is a widely used welding process. During the MIG welding process, an electric arc is created between a consumable electrode (usually a wire) and the piece of work. The arc produces an intense level of heat, which melts the base of the metal and creates a welded joint.
An inert gas, such as argon or a mixture of gases, is continuously fed through the welding gun during the MIG welding process. This shields the weld pool and the electrode from contamination, which prevents oxidation and ensures that the weld comes out clean.
MIG welding is a highly versatile type of welding, which makes it popular for many applications. MIG welding can also be used to weld a wide variety of metals in varying thicknesses. Additionally, many prefer MIG welding because it produces a clean and aesthetically pleasing weld.
Today, MIG welding is used to produce products for a variety of industries and applications. For example, MIG welding is frequently used in the automotive, manufacturing, and construction fields.
