Metal inert gas (MIG) welding, also known as gas metal arc welding, uses an electric arc that forms between a metal rod or wire in your welding gun, and the piece of metal being worked on. The working metal heats up, melts, and joins together. The welding rod or wire feeds into the welding gun and supplies the electrode, either feeding through at a constant rate or varying the feed based on the arc length and voltage. Typical feed rates range from 2 to 10 metres per minute. It could be that you’re working on one piece of metal, or trying to fuse two different pieces together. The welding gun also uses a shielding gas to protect the fusing process from contaminants in the air. MIG welding is fast, relatively easy, and quite versatile.
