MIG/MAG Welding

MIG (metal inert gas) welding, sometimes referred to as wire welding, MAG (metal active gas) or GMAW (gas metal arc welding), is today, the most common welding processes in the world due to its speed and versatility.

MIG welding is a process in which a continuous supply of wire (supplied on reels) is fed through the gun which acts as both a filler material and the electrode which melts the metal being welded. A flow of inert gas is used as a ‘shield’ to protect the weld from airborne contaminants and atmospheric gases such as nitrogen and oxygen which can cause poor welds, fusion defects and porosity.

The gas used when MIG welding will depend on the material you're joining;
