MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding uses a wire electrode that is fed through a welding gun and combined with an inert gas to produce a clean, precise weld. It is a popular welding method used in various applications, including automotive and construction.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding uses a tungsten electrode and a shielding gas to produce a high-quality, precise weld. It is commonly used for welding thin materials, such as aluminum and stainless steel, in industries such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing.
Stick welding, also known as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), uses a flux-coated electrode that melts and forms a protective shield around the weld. It is a versatile and portable welding method used in construction, repair, and maintenance applications.
Flux-cored welding uses a tubular wire electrode with a flux core that shields the weld from the surrounding air. It can be used with or without shielding gas and is commonly used in heavy industrial applications, such as shipbuilding and pipeline welding.
