MIG/MAG welding are the names used in Europe for the GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) process.The difference between MIG and MAG welding is the type of shielding gases that are used for welding.
MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas.
Only inert gases or gas mixtures are used for the shielding gas when MIG welding. Typical inert gases used for MIG welding are argon and helium. These gases are usually used for MIG welding of aluminium and other non-ferrous metals.
MAG stands for Metal Active Gas.
Active gas mixtures have been developed primarily for welding steels. Typical shielding gases are mixtures of argon, carbon dioxide and oxygen e.g. CO2 , Ar + 2 to 5% O2 , Ar + 5 to 25% CO2 and Ar + 10% CO2 + 5% O2 .The composition of the shielding gas has a substantial effect on the stability of the arc, metal transfer and the amount of spatter. The shielding gas also affects the behavior of the weld pool, particularly its penetration and the mechanical properties of the welded joint.
The content of the training is developed for beginner or advance level individuals:
- Energitic source of welding
- Work safety
- Butt fusion, chains welding, corners, tin surfaces of 1.5 up to 12 mm thickness in different positions and different welding materials.
