In metal fabrication, welding is an important and relevant process because, without it, parts and components would not be combined and fused together. Welding is the process of fusing two parts together, and they’re usually metal or steel.
There are many different types and welding methods and one of the simplest and the most basic of all is MIG welding. With us here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts, you can count on us to help you with any kind and type of welding – and if it’s MIG welding you need, we’ll be able to be of assistance.
We will help you in fully understanding what MIG welding is, how it can benefit you and your company, and why it’s the best type of welding that you can get.
What is MIG Welding?
Among all other welding procedures and methods under our blue heaven, the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) procedure is known to be the basis of all types of welding and under this procedure, MIG or metal inert gas welding is included.
Some welders call it to wire welding and it’s because of a thin single wire that acts as the electrode in the process. So how does this wire do the trick? Well, this wire is surrounded by a flexible tube where both of them are connected and fed from a gun that mounts a spool or from inside the welding machine.
When it triggers, the wire is fed continuously and when it’s pulled, the welding current is born. This is what heats up the two metals or steels together, melting them so they form as a single workpiece – then when it solidifies, it gets harder.
Why MIG Welding?
Other than MIG welding, there are other types of welding such as TIG welding, stick welding, gas welding, laser welding, and many more – so why should you choose MIG welding? What does MIG welding have that other methods and processes don’t.
One of the things that MIG welding brags about is its ability to not have any type of slag produced in the process. Without slag, the welders will have less time to focus and to clean the torch and the nozzle – making it better in terms of productivity.
Add the fact that the welders we have here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts are experienced in the entire metal fabrication process, you’ll really have nothing else to look for.
With the gas shield intact, loss of alloying elements and metals will be very little-to-none, keeping the arc and the nozzle clean and free-from any type of waste materials. However, it’s not impenetrable – dirt will still accumulate but the only upside is that time would not be wasted because it’s only a few dirt involved.
Unlike other types of welding methods, MIG welding is capable of welding a wide variety and range of alloys and metals including mild steel, stainless steel, magnesium, nickel, aluminum steel, bronze, copper, even iron – and other alloys.
In addition to that, MIG welding can be operated either by setting it to semi-automatic or fully-automatic which can be useful for specifying projects and product outputs.
You’re just on the right page if you’re looking for a metal fabrication company that can help you in terms of welding faster and swifter. Since the wire electrode in MIG welding is fed continuously and because the power is fed from a spool or a welding machine or equipment, the welder will only have to use one arm.
Because of the speed involved, our welders will be able to think and focus more on the overall quality and control over the workpiece that’s being welded.
Those are only a few of the benefits and advantages of MIG welding but there are literally a lot more. One thing to note, though, is that when you ask for MIG welding with some other company, it might have a higher price than the usual – that’s why working with us here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts is perfect.
Our welders are all experienced in the craft, accumulating years – and even decades of experience. You can count on us and our welders to help form and create the materials, equipment, and the parts that you need.
All companies who worked with us have greatly commended us because of the fact that we were able to provide high-quality welds in just a short period of time – and that’s why we became their go-to company.
It’s called gas metal arc welding because when the current is triggered and the electrode disposes of the current, a gas shield is formed which protects the molten metal from reacting with other external gasses like water vapor, oxygen, and the like; and the wire electrode continuously spews heat. Furthermore, it’s called wire welding because when it’s being used continuously, the wire melts and it’s consumed, hence its term as a “consumable electrode.”
MIG welding is considered as the most basic type of welding, and yet, it’s dubbed as the most effective, too. That’s why you can bank on us here at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts if you need help in terms of MIG welding your fabricated metallic products and goods.
