MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas and the wire is continuously feed through the gun by a motorized feed wheel, of which the speed of the feed can be controlled by an adjustment of a dial. You can when MIG welding use a shielded core wire, which means the wire is hollow and has a flux material inside, the flux replaces the gas and is easier to use, but flux core welding is not as nice looking as gas shielding. And MIG is not as good looking as TIG. Although with practice they are both strong and stable welds the best results are given with the help of a good welding machine The welding gas of either type of welding can be Argon, Helium, Hydrogen etc. or a mix of gases. Great degree of care has to used with some of these gases due to there tendency to displace the oxygen in the air around the area of welding. YOU can SUFFOCATE very easily and with out you realizing it is happening. No matter which type of welding you are doing you need to set the gas feed pressure and use the appropriate wire or rod. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
