Learn about the different arc welding processes 

Gas metal-arc welding is an arc welding process in which an electric arc is ignited between an electrode and the component, fusing the components and, if applicable, a filler metal. Here, a distinction is made between several methods. Among these, MIG/MAG welding and TIG welding are the most used methods for the process. These differ in the type of gas that is used and the choice of materials. They impress with maximum weld quality and a high weld speed.
