Metal Inert Gas (MIG) is useful because you can use it to weld many different types of metals: carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, copper, nickel, silicon bronze and other alloys. The most common application of MIG welding is in the automotive industry of all sizes.Some advantages to MIG welding includes the ability to join a wide range of metals and thicknesses, all-position welding capability, provides a good weld bead, and minimum weld splatter.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is capable of achieving the highest quality welds and is the most versatile in terms of what can be welded and the position of the welds. One of the advantages of TIG welding is that the weld not only possesses high integrity but it also has an aesthetic surface finish. The process is used in a number of industries. Many of them use TIG for welding thin workpieces, especially nonferrous metals, as well as to weld small-diameter, and/or thin-wall tubing.
Flux Cored Welding combines the high productivity of MIG welding using a solid electrode with the ability to weld on more contaminated base material. When compared with MIG welding, higher deposition rates are possible, especially when welding out of position. Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) utilizes a continuously-fed tubular electrode, electrical power to melt the electrode, and may or may not use shielding gas from an externally supplied source when depositing material in the weld joint.
