  • Welding - MIG method (or GMAW)

    Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is commonly known as metal inert gas (MIG) welding. An electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the base metal(s), which heats the base and parent metals, causing them to melt and join together.

  • Welding - TIG method (or GTAW)

    Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding is an arc welding process that uses an external gas supply and a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. Also called Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), which is the American Welding Society's official term. This process typically allows the operator greater control than other welding processes (such as MIG) and stronger welds, but is sometimes considered a slower and more complex technique. TIG welding is recommended for joining 4130 chrome moly materials.
