How to Choose a MIG Welder | MIG Welder Reviews

The difference between TIG and MIG welding is the way that the material is handled. MIG welding involves the wire becoming a part of the welded material. Make welding utilizes wire fed electrode is is consumed and creates a spark in a metal inert gas which is also sent through the welding gun and protects the “weld pool” from the contamination. In fact, MIG stands for “metal inert gas”. In MIG welding, the electrode is also the filler material which forms the bond between the two surfaces.

MIG welders generate a wire welding electrode on a spool that is automatically fed into the welder at a uniform speed. An arc is generated with the help of the electrical current that flows between the base metal and the wire. The highly charged current melts the wire and the metal’s base, forming a joint between them. The weld created with this technology is quite sturdy and has very little need for cleaning.—Welding Headquarters

TIG welding, or gas tungsten arc welding uses an arc between a tungsten electrode, which is not consumed, and the workpiece. This arc melts the metal of the workpiece itself and form a bond. TIG welding uses a shielding gas and may include a filler material.

Of the two types, TIG welding is the cleaner of the two. It can be used with aluminum and is more readily used indoors.

MIG welding is louder, smokier, and more readily used outdoors. MIG welding is known as “stick welding” because the electrode is consumed.

The MIG process enables the home-hobbyist, artist, farmer/rancher, motorsports enthusiast or DIY welder to make most types of fabrication and maintenance/repair welds on material from 24-gauge up to 1/2-inch thick. In addition to flexibility, many people turn to MIG welding because they’ve heard that it’s an easy process to learn. Some claim it’s no harder to use than a glue gun. While it’s not quite that simple, it is true that most people can become competent MIG welders by following some basic advice.—– Millerwelds

The factors need to be considered are:
1. Is the job outside or inside?
2. What metals are involved?
3. Are your professional or beginner?
4. Do you need training? Welding is a highly technical process that can create a dangerous conditions. Exposure to these hazards can result in discomfort, or permanent injury or death. The hazards are themes and gases, electric shock, fires, explosions, and extremely high temperatures..
5. What is the voltage required? The power to any electrical machine is limited by the plug. 110V machines are available at different temperatures and dual voltage machines help you move up to to the higher power of 220V.

MIG welders use gas (unless your wire is flux core), can use spools of wire, and are great for long welds, can be used with one hand leaving the other hand available to hold part.. MIG welders are smoky, and splatter. The advantages of MIG welding are that it is easy to learn, Power, material thickness, space and budget are important factors to consider when choosing a MIG welder.
