What is Welding?
There are some different types of welding see below for some information on the them
MIG or Metal Inert Gas; the technical name for it is Gas Metal Arc Welding (or GMAW) with the slang name being known as Wire Welding.
MIG Welding is an arc welding processing in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base material together. A shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination.
TIG or Tungsten Inert Gas; also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (or GTAW). Unlike MIG welding, the TIG welding procedure may or may not use a filler metal for the welding supply.
TIG welder parts include a non-consumable tungsten electrode that runs a current through the metals being joined, a computerised controller for timing welding operations and uses a robotic arm assembly for moving the welding tip into place.
