MIG welding is essentially a semi-automatic process, with the rate that the wire is fed at and the length of the arc controlled at the source of the power. However, the wires position and the speed at which the weld travels are manually controlled. As the welder moves the welding torch along the line of the joint, the wire is fed out by a motor driven reel, the type of welding wire varies depending on the type of metal you wish to weld.
MIG welding is typically used for large and thick welding materials. As the consumable wire has dual functions, acting as the electrode and as the filler material, there is no need to hold a separate welding rod, enabling single handed and much faster welding. This welding method is relatively simple to learn, and requires little post weld cleanup and finishing. The MIG welding consumables are relatively inexpensive, which, combined with the speed and efficiency of MIG welding, allows for short lead times and low costs.
