What is MIG/MAG welding used for?
MIG/MAG processes are used with components of different thickness and geometry, made of various materials. MIG welding is especially suitable for non-ferrous metals like aluminium, magnesium, copper and titanium. MAG welding is generally used for welding non-alloy, low alloy and high alloy steel.
What is the difference between MIG and MAG welding?
The only difference between MIG and MAG welding is the type of shielding gas used. The composition of shielding gas is important as it impacts the arc stability, metal transfer, weld profile, penetration and spray rate.
What is TIG welding used for?
The most important application of TIG welding are pipes and pipelines. However, it is used in various fields, like aviation and aerospace industries, as well as sheet metal industry when welding especially thin and special materials, e.g., titan.
What kind of process is TIG welding?
Welding with tungsten inert gas (TIG) uses heat produced by the electric current. This is created between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and a workpiece for metal joining in the weld area, creating a weld pool.
