MIG Welding Safety

MIG Welding – Safety and Technique

Metal Inert Gas Welding or MIG Welding is based on the electric arc welding process, where completion of an electric circuit between positive and negative poles creates an electric arc, which generates tremendous heat permitting the fusion welding of metals.

Because of its versatility and the ability to weld in a variety of positions, MIG Welding has become the most popular welding process used in industry today.
