ARC Welding

ARC welding uses a consumable rod clamped into an electrode holder. A ground is clamped to the metal being welded and an arc is made when the rod comes in contact with the metal. Generally used for ferrous materials, it is popular for repair work and construction.

MIG Welding

MIG Welding (GMAW – Gas Metal Arc Welding) MIG welding uses a continuous wire fed from a spool. the wire is held against the metal and heated using a gun that expels an inert gas such as helium or argon. This method offers high welding speeds and is often used for aluminum  and in the automobile industry
