Metal inert gas (MIG) welding is a welding process used to weld aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. During the MIG welding process (which can be either automatic or semi-automatic) an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal; this heats the metal causing them to melt, and join.
There are four primary methods of metal transfer in GMAW (globular, short-circuiting, spray, and pulsed-spray), each of which comes with its own benefits and limitations.

TIG Welding, also known as Tungsten Inert Gas and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.
Used to weld together reactive metals, such as magnesium and aluminum, TIG welding uses a shielding gas (typically argon, helium, or a combination of both) to help create a clean weld, preventing oxidization from occurring.
There are several different types of joints designed for use with this method of welding, including the butt joint, lap joint, corner joint, and t-joint. To learn more please contact us.
