The MIG welding system is quite simple and easy to process and easy to learn also while as Tig is not that easy. Their technical names are metal inert gas (MIG) and tungsten inert gas (TIG).
The MIG welder works is by using an uninterrupted feed of spool welding-wire, which first burns then melt and then fuses in the base and burns, melts and combines the base and the other metal for welding.
This common type of welding was perfected in the 1960s. The MIG source uses a pistol that is constantly fed with consumption electricity.
The Mig welding system usage in an outer gas source to protect the welded- metal from other factors of the environment such as oxygen which makes it fast and continuous.
What is Mig and Tig welding difference?
The word Mig. Stands for (metal insert gas) and The Tig. Stands for (tungsten insert gas). The biggest difference between the both Mig and Tig welding is that one system uses the continuous wire feeding,
In the other system is by lengthy rods of welding which are gently inserted into the welding puddle respectively, apart from the wire feeding difference both the welding process uses an electric arc for welding.
Generates fewer amount of fumes, has an excellent efficiency of the electrode and requires less amount of heat for the welding, But the machinery is costly and required an outer source of oxygen gas.
In the MIG welding system, various alloys such as aluminum, stainless steel, silicon, bronze, nickel, copper, and magnesium can be welded easily.
It is widely used in construction, automotive repairs, plumbing, robotics, manufacturing and also the marine repairs.
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding or GTAW
This welding system was introduced first in 1941, No doubt it is a time consuming and laborious welding technique that demands the higher welding skills.
An autogenous welding can be formed by melting two metal pieces without the filler piece of metal.
TIG produces high quality, sputtering free welding of different alloys which can be very lean.
It demands a highly experienced operator and an external gas for shielding, but the dirty and rusty material is not suitable for this type of welding.
TIG welding procedure is excellently used in the welding of aerospace, motorcycle, vehicle, and bicycle industry, and extreme quality welding and piping industry.

There is also a foot pedal and an ultra-flexible TIG torch but the reeled gun is optional.
However, users are extremely happy with the functionality, versatility, and performance of the Lincoln multiple-processing welding machine.
Some user also shares that the preset settings are an excellent feature because it works perfectly in both sheet metal and thick steel if you are not a professional welder.
At the same time, we recommend this 3-in-1 welder, now enjoy the three machines in a portable and lightbox at the same time.
Most users are highly influenced by the MIG process.
450 linear foot cord panels to weld and the Lincoln MIG welder did the job perfectly.
However, some complaints about the wire feed and that the gas regulator is badly done.
This multiple purpose welder as per its name has an ever last construction, it is light in weight, powerful and a professional-welder.
Most users like this robust construction but for the spool gun, you will have to pay additional charges.
This versatile welder has a max. The output is 250 amps, and a digital type architecture, the euro fast type connect MIG-gun, dual type input voltage, digital screen for easy readout along with a lot of advance working setting e.g., HF or TIG removable set up.
Apart from the normal Stick, TIG and MIG welding options this unique machine also have the synergistic MIG, TIG welding option and MIG pulse welding modes.
Customers are enjoying its construction, workability, powerfulness, and the multiple purposes 3-in-1 welding options.
Some users also explained that its pulse and synergic options are smooth in working and the accessories are of extreme quality.
Another user also comments that this latest multifunctional welder at 110 V works well without any problems and is very much satisfied.
This multi-welder is the best choice due to the extra modes and accessories and mostly user is satisfied, even after 6 month using it works excellently.
One user is concerned about the workability of this welding machine is slightly complicated, but the control panel has convenient functioning.
The user who demands a welder with both multipurpose cutting and welding then the Lotos LTPDC2000D is the ideal choice
Most users like this plasma-cutter due to its features, and the special consumable products.
This multi-purpose welding machine weighs is 43 pounds and the dimensions 15.5 “x 8” x 12 “.
It takes 200 amp, with a stick and TIG welding and has a 50 amps-inverter plasma type cutting options with a max. The thickness of half an inch welding along with the TIG accessories and both type of automatic voltage setting.
