  • An Overview of MIG Welding from Nelson Steel Products

    Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), also known as MIG welding, uses a solid electrode that is fed continuously while gas is shielded from an external source. Electrical power melts the electrode and deposits the melted material into the weld joint. The welding equipment regulates the electrical features of the arc automatically. In fact, the welder only manually controls the travel speed and direction, and torch positioning. The preselected arc length, or voltage, is maintained when the equipment settings are correct, so the power supply is providing the right amperage to melt the electrode at the proper rate.

  • An Overview of TIG Welding from Nelson Steel Products

    Tungsten Inert Gas welding, more commonly referred to by its acronym TIG, uses a tungsten electrode that heats the metal being used during the welding process. A gas, such as argon, is used to avoid contamination while you’re welding no matter the metal material being used or its thickness. More versatile than other welding methods, TIG welding can be used with a wider range of metals than other types of welding. TIG welding is known for appearing clean and its precision which leaves the weld looking great. TIG welding allows for the welder to control the heat by use of a foot pedal creating more control. What’s more, TIG welding will not create fumes, sparks, or fumes that sometimes occur with other welding methods.
