Welding methods

When welding, there are different methods and techniques to choose from. Common is that you use an electric or gas welder or a combined welder. The most common welding methods are:

  • MIG / MAG
  • TIG
  • MMA
MIG / MAG

Gas Metal Arc Welding is better known as MIG or MAG weldingg and is one of the most common methods used today. A common method when it comes to home repairs, perhaps especially in cars and car plates. The methods are often used for welding aluminum and alloyed materials such as stainless steel. It can be used in all thicknesses of material and can be welded in all positions. The methods are fast and do not require much finishing work. However, the method is sensitive to rust and impurities that can cause pore formation in the weld. It is advisable to be indoors when using these methods as drafts can interfere with the welding process.

TIG

Gas welding or TIG welding is a fusion welding method named after the English name Tungsten Insert Gas. The method is slower than metal arc welding. The advantage of this welding method is that it can give more qualitative results. If you are going to do welding work where the end result should be visually appealing, TIG welding is a suitable method. It can be used on all weldable materials and is often used for welding thinner materials precisely because it is a slower welding method.

MMA welding

MMA welding (pin welding) means metal arc welding and is the most common welding method used in both construction and design forging. It is used for several different metals and can be made with simple equipment. It is therefore a suitable gateway to welding because it contains all the steps of welding but still has relatively simple equipment. MMA welding is suitable for outdoor use and not as weather sensitive as other welding methods. It is therefore often used in repairs. It requires a certain habit as the welding method is slow.
