MIG Welding

MIG or Metal Inert-Gas Welding is sometimes referred to as Wire-feed. The "Metal" refers to the consumable wire electrode which is used to start the arc. It is shielded by inert gas and the feeding wire also acts as the filler rod. A semi-automatic process, it is fairly easy to learn and use. MIG is most typically used to best effect in commercial fabrication settings where continuous welding is desired, and where environmental conditions, joint preparation, and materials can be controlled. KEYWORDS for this process: MIG welders, Metal Inert-Gas welders, wire-feed welding, wire-feed welders
