METAL INERT GAS (MIG) WELDING
Metal Inert Gas, or MIG, is an arc welding process that feeds a solid wire electrode through a welding gun and into the weld pool—joining the two base materials together. Typically, a shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun which protects the weld pool from contamination. Cadorath’s technicians use the MIG process in most types of metal joinery or repair welds on mild steels and alloys, mostly for industrial and agricultural applications.
ADVANTAGES OF METAL INERT GAS (MIG) WELDING
- A highly flexible welding process.
- Versatile, clean and efficient.
- Ease of use.
ORIGINS AND DEVELOPMENT
Officially, MIG welding got its start in the United States in 1948, the same year gas metal arc welding (GMAW) was widely introduced.
Like many of today’s modern manufacturing processes, MIG welding is likely to undergo increasing levels of automation in the years ahead. Although not fully known, automation will almost certainly save costs and create efficiencies in the future.
