Q: What is TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding?
A: TIG welding joins metal by heating them with a tungsten electrode that does not become part of the completed weld. It is used for almost any ferrous or non-ferrous material, such as aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, copper, cast iron, brass, or bronze.
Q: What is MIG (GMAW or Gas Metal Arc Welding)?
A: MIG welding joins metals by heating them with an arc. The arc is between a continuously fed filler metal electrode and the workpiece. The metal is deposited only when the wire actually touches the work. No metal is transferred across the arc.
