Arc welding is a process utilising the concentrated heat of an electric arc to join metal by fusion of the parent metal and the addition of metal to the joint by consumable electrode. This is a preferred method for use on and with heavy constructional steelwork.
Mig (Metal Inert Gas) welding shields the welding zone with an external gas such as Argon, Helium, Carbon Dioxide or a gas mixture.
This system uses a copper coated steel wire as a combined electrode and filler. The benefits of this type of welding are that it is a very clean and controllable method and is excellent for use in general, light steel production.
Tig (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding uses a non-melting electrode made of Tungsten. Filler material is added manually if necessary. Often, Tig welding is just the fusion of two parts with no additional filler. The welding flux is provided by pure Argon gas fed through the torch over the Tungsten.
This is the method for welding thin mild steel, stainless steel & aluminium.
