General description

Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is a process in which an electric arc forms between and electrode and metal workpiece – heating the metals and causing them to melt resulting in the two being fused.

Technical description

MIG welding is generally used for large and thicker metals. It employs a consumable wire that acts as both an electrode and the filler/fuser material. Although not the strongest form of welding for thicker metals, MIG welding is appropriate to weld thin to medium thickness metals, as it reduces the risk of damage or burn through.
