What is MIG Welding?


How Does MIG Welding Work?

MIG welding requires three things, electricity to supply heat, an electrode to fill the joint, and shielding gas to guard the weld from the air. is completed employing a very small electrode that’s fed continuously, while the operator controls the quantity of weld being done. In some cases when a robot takes over this process, it becomes automatic welding.

The way this all works is that the welder squeezes the trigger of the MIG gun then the electricity charges the electrode while the fed starts feeding the wire and eventually the shielding gas is feed through the MIG gun nozzle. What happens is as soon because the electrode contacts the metal it arcs and starts melting the weld joint and filler metal at an equivalent time while being shielded from the air by the shielding gas.

Is MIG Welding Easy to Learn?

MIG is extremely easy compared to stay and TIG welding. there’s a catch. MIG welding is straightforward but knowing the way to found out the equipment might be difficult counting on the sort of kit used. I even have worked in shops where the welders knew the way to weld but they might not found out their machine making them useless.

These days the new MIG welders beginning don’t require much knowledge and anyone can weld with them. the image below may be a MillerMatic 211 that each one you’ve got to try to turn the dial to your metal thickness and squeeze the trigger.
