MIG WELDING APPLICATIONS:

1. If your project uses thicker and bigger pieces of metal that are going to need a lot of welding work, MIG is the option for you. The filler material thats fed continuously on a spool will connect your pieces together to get the final product you want. This form of welding might require some grinding or smoothing after the welding process.

2. The continuous nature of MIG reduces the chance of a defect because you dont have to worry about starting and stopping repeatedly.

3. MIG welds have triggers that control the operation and allow a free hand for tacking or holding the materials in a certain way so they can weld correctly.

4. MIG welds can handle longer production runs because theyre easier to manage and work faster than TIG welds.

5. MIG welding is better-suited for bigger projects because theyre easier to handle and can do longer welds.
