General information on TIG and MIG welders

There are many processes in manufacturing, and one of which include welding, this process is a very important process at the same time it involves a lot of risk, so all the essential precautionary measures has to be taken for safe welding. Welding seems to be a simple process which just joins two materials together using a series of heat or pressure, but it is not so, it’s a very dangerous process. Welding equipments are used to link two metals, which are generally used in the production of automobiles, bridges, buildings, air craft’s, trains and so on. Manufacturing industry understood the importance of welding and introduced all the latest technology in welding in order to improve the standards of welding.

There are various types of welding process, each one is used for different purposes and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the welding methods are arc welding, TIG welding, MIG welding and plasma cutting.TIG is the short form of gas tungsten metal arc, in this type of welding tungsten electrode is used to produce the weld, where thin sections of stainless steel and non ferrous metals can be welded. Whereas in MIG aluminum and non ferrous materials can be welded, MIG is an automatic welding process which is mostly preferred for its speed and adaptability. Plasma arc welding uses plasma gas and has slender diffusion with better energy concentration.


MIG welding is a very simple way of welding, but it needs a lot of good practice to carry out such kind of welding, with all the essential tools and proper experience, one can perform the best quality welds at ease with the help of MIG welding machines.

They are typically used to link aluminum and other metals, generally softer metals. MIG welding is used where high flow of power is not required and the sheets to weld are of around one eight of an inch thickness, if you want to weld thicker sheets you can use something with higher voltage.

These welding equipments are obtained in various sizes and different voltages. MIG is well known for its quality performance, and is priced cost effectively as well.


The short form TIG stands for tungsten inert gas. In TIG welding, it’s important to set up a good electrical contact between the tungsten and collet. This way, current transfer and weld quality can be better. TIG welding is one of the finest techniques for welding and manipulating aluminum, though TIG welding is incredibly high priced. One of the major advantages to a TIG welder is its elevated amperage which helps greater thickness of metal to be welded, amongst other advantages relating to the purity of the metal, cleaning etc., even this is considered.
