MIG welding is used during many of our projects, since it is a highly versatile type of welding.
Developed in the 1940s, MIG welding, otherwise known as Gas Metal Arc Welding, has become a standard, highly used type of welding. This form of welding uses an arc of electricity to create a short circuit between a cathode and an anode that is continuously fed by the welding gun. When the short circuit begins to create heat and a gas is produced, the metals being welded together are melted and mixed. Once cooled and solidified, a new piece of metal is formed.
At Stainless Outfitters Inc., MIG welding is one of the many services we provide in the Barrie, Ontario area. We use this type of welding in many different situations because of its multitude of advantages, which include some of the following:
- With MIG welding, you can weld many different types of metals, including copper, nickel, silicon, bronze, aluminum, and many others.
- This type of welding allows metals of different thicknesses to be welded together.
- Since MIG welding is relatively simple, projects where it is used can be completed relatively quickly.
- The MIG welding process is very efficient, minimizing the loss of materials.
At Stainless Outfitters Inc., our goal is to meet the specific challenges of any design and produce a product that will exceed your expectations. If you would like to know more about MIG welding and how it is used, please feel free to contact us today.
