MIG/MAG WELDING

MIG/MAG welding is a form of CO2 welding and one of the most used and versatile welding methods for manual as well as robot welding. MIG/MAG welding can be used on stainless steel, steel and aluminium.

MIG/MAG welding is an error-tolerant welding method: The item and the wire do not have to be made of the same material, and the shaping of the item does not have to be as accurate as in TIG welding.

 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MIG AND MAG WELDING

 

  • MIG (Metal Inert Gas): The inert gasses protects the item against the surrounding atmosphere. MIG is used on weldable materials, typically with a thickness of more than 2 mm.
  • MAG (Metal Active Gas): The gasses are a chemically active part of the welding process. MAG welding is used on weldable materials, typically with a thickness of more than 2 mm.

 

THE WELDING PROCESS

MIG/MAG welding always involves using a wire. The electric arc forms between the wire and the material. The wire melts onto the material, and the welding forms through continuous and stable movement of the wire.
