Welding is one of the most crucial and the most critical processes in manufacturing and in the metal fabrication industry. Not convinced yet? – Well without welding, no two parts would be welded and fused together.
The process of welding is important because it’s what combines and fuses two parts together – for instance, the side-body of the car connected to the roof is a product of welding. Without it, the pieces or the parts would fall and would not hold to serve its purpose.
There are a lot of different types and kinds of welding – and the most common would be the Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding. What MIG welding is quite a complex and a complicated thing to talk about – but we here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians will definitely help you in understanding what it is and why it’s the best and the most common type of welding.
How Does MIG Welding Work?
MIG is also known to be the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and it is the process of using an electric arc – creating the heat that is used to melt and join the metals together. In MIG welding, a power supply is created so that the electrode is activated, making the entire welding process work.
Other than MIG welding, there are other types of welding including:
- Stick Welding
- TIG or Tungsten Inert Gas Welding
- Gas Welding
- Plasma Arc Welding
- Spot Welding
- And Many More
We here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians use MIG most of the time because we believe that it is the most efficient and effective type of welding strategy. Other than the fact that it’s the most common type of welding procedure, MIG welding also has the following advantages over other types of welding.
The Advantages of MIG Welding
The most common reasons why MIG welding is considered as the best type of welding technique is because of these:
MIG Welding is Easier and Simpler to Learn
Since it’s dubbed as the most basic and the best type of welding, MIG welding is a skill that is considered by many people to be the easiest and the simplest to learn. Even if you have a little-to-no background and you want to do welding, you can easily do it within a few hours.
As a matter of fact, professional MIG welders are calling the process to be direct and straightforward without anything complicated in between.
It’s Cleaner and More Efficient
Unlike some other types of welding, MIG welding utilizes a shielding gas to secure and protect the arc. This allows minimal loss of alloy and other alloying elements in the entire welding process resulting in fewer and even no slag to remove and a lot more efficiency in work.
However, in order for you to protect yourself and the project you’re working with, MIG welding devices would need to be cleaned when dirt has caught up in the shield – and it’s certainly an easy process!
It’s also known to be a fast type of welding because it has a faster time in melting the products or the workpiece!
It’s More Flexible and Versatile
All the welders and the welding gurus we have here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians have mastered the art of MIG welding to the point that they know how they can be more versatile in working with many different projects in a day – and more flexible in terms of working on many types of products and outputs.MIG welding can be ticked and toggled to be either semi-automatic or to be a fully-automatic.
In addition to that, MIG welding has been made and designed to weld a wide range of alloys, metals, and steels including the following:
- Mild Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Aluminum Steel
- And Many More
