Copper, a non-ferrous and malleable metal, has been used in metal fabrication since 3500 BC due to its versatility. It can be easily shaped, cut, bent, and joined with other metals using various welding methods. Its exceptional thermal and electrical conductivity, along with its high corrosion [...]
Tag: Gas Metal Arc Welding
MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas Welding or as named by the American Welding Society, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW). To not overcomplicate things, many people just refer to it as wire welding. Wire welding (aka MIG and GMAW) was first invented in the 1940s. Fast-forward 70 years and the general [...]
Confused by the different welding processes? We have explained each of the main 3 arc welding (Stick, TIG, and MIG Welding) processes and where and when you might use them.
What is the primary difference between FCAW and MIG, also called GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding)? The difference is not in the equipment. They both use MIG equipment, and FCAW is sometimes called MIG flux-core. The primary difference is the wire that is used. Aside from the wire, let’s take a look [...]
