MIG (metal inert gas) welding, also known as gas metal arc welding (GMAW), is a key joining technology in manufacturing. MIG welding guide provides a comprehensive, practical and accessible guide to this widely used process.

Part one discusses the range of technologies used in MIG welding, including power sources, shielding gases and consumables. Fluxed cored arc welding, pulsed MIG welding and MIG brazing are also explored. Part two reviews quality and safety issues such as improving productivity in MIG/MAG welding, assessing weld quality, health and safety, and methods for reducing costs. The final part of the book takes a practical look at the applications of MIG welding, with chapters dedicated to the welding of steel and aluminium, the use of robotics in MIG welding, and the application of MIG welding in the automotive industry.

MIG welding guide is essential reading for welding and production engineers, designers and all those involved in manufacturing.
