The Future Of Welding: Unveiling Our Latest Robotic Welder At AMSAugust 1, 2023
A Focus On TIG And MIG Welding
Explore the art of MIG vs. TIG welding in metal fabrication. Learn how precision, efficiency, and commitment to quality shape industry-leading services.
With over 30 years of experience in metal fabricating, AMS is an established industry leader. Our commitment to excellence fuels our growth from a small shop to a local powerhouse. In this context, we’ve honed our TIG and MIG welding capabilities.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) and MIG (Metal Inert Gas) are two types of welding commonly used on different types of metals, but they have different strengths and are best suited for specific applications. Let’s take a look at the differences.
TIG Welding: Precision and Cleanliness
TIG, or Tungsten Inert Gas welding, is a method renowned for its precision. By using a tungsten electrode to heat the metal, TIG welding allows for intricate, high-quality welds. This process is ideal for detailed work on materials like stainless steel and aluminum, both of which AMS excels in fabricating.
Due to its precision, TIG welding is most commonly used for stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, copper alloys, and thin materials. It’s known for providing high-quality, clean welds.
AMS’s certified welders create immaculate, clean welds with TIG, suitable for pressure vessels and medical applications. Furthermore, our TIG welding is perfect for smaller projects requiring high precision and cleanliness.
MIG Welding: Speed and Efficiency
On the other hand, MIG, or Metal Inert Gas welding, is known for its speed and adaptability. It utilizes a wire-feeding gun that conducts current and melts into the weld. This results in efficient, robust welds perfect for larger, thicker materials.
MIG welding is more versatile and can be used with a wider range of metals and thicknesses, including stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminum. It is faster and more efficient for longer, continuous welds.
AMS leverages the speed of MIG welding to deliver projects under tight deadlines. For structural metals, MIG welding offers the blend of speed and strength necessary to keep projects on track without compromising quality.
Bridging Techniques for Perfect Fabrication
At AMS, we don’t view TIG and MIG welding as mutually exclusive; instead, they complement each other. By combining these techniques, we can take on projects of any size. No job is too small for our TIG specialists, and no project is too large for our MIG experts.
