MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding are two common welding processes we utilize in the metal fabrication process. MIG welding involves the use of a wire that is fed through a spool and into a welding gun, where it is melted and deposited onto the workpiece to form a weld. An inert gas, such as argon or carbon dioxide, is used to shield the weld from the atmosphere and prevent oxidation.
Why you should choose Carlson Metal for your Welding project...
MIG welding is a fast and efficient process that is commonly used for welding thicker materials and for producing long, continuous welds. TIG welding, on the other hand, involves the use of a tungsten electrode that is held in a torch and used to heat the metal to be welded. The welding process is performed by manually feeding a filler metal into the weld pool, while an inert gas protects the weld from oxidation. TIG welding is a slower process than MIG welding, but it provides a higher degree of precision and control, making it ideal for welding thinner materials and for producing high-quality, cosmetic welds.
Both MIG and TIG welding are widely used in metal fabrication for joining metal parts and components, and each has its own unique advantages and disadvantages depending on the application.
