MIG Welding (GMAW)

Mig welding, also known as GMAW(Gas Metal Arc Welding) or wire welding, is not as common as stick welding, but it’s use is on the rise. A few reasons for the increase in it’s popularity could be due to its fast learning curve, a quicker process than the other major welding types, produces less slag for easy welding and cleaning, and continuous welds via wire feeding mechanism. To prevent contamination the welding area of the working material is covered with argon gas, preserving a quality weld.
