Frequently Asked Questions
1 - What is the difference between MIG and TIG welding?
MIG welding is a straightforward technique where a wire that also acts as an electrode is continuously fed through a welding gun, making it fast and beginner-friendly. TIG welding, on the other hand, is more complex, requiring the welder to hold and manually feed a filler metal while using a separate tungsten electrode, providing high precision and cleaner, more detailed welds suited for more delicate or intricate work.
2 - Can a MIG welder be used for TIG?
Some MIG welders can be adapted to perform TIG welding using an add-on TIG torch and a few modifications, provided the welder is compatible with the TIG process. This usually requires the welder to have a DC power source, as TIG welding commonly requires DC for most metals (AC is used for TIG welding aluminum). Additionally, a proper gas regulator and shielding gas, typically argon, are necessary for TIG welding. It's important to note that while a conversion is possible, dedicated TIG welders are generally preferred for TIG welding due to their specialized features and controls that allow for greater precision and quality of the weld.
3 - Is a beginner welder MIG or TIG?
For beginners, a MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welder is typically recommended over a TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welder. MIG welding is more straightforward because it uses a continuous wire feed, requires fewer manual techniques, and is generally easier to learn and master. TIG welding, while offering greater control and precision for high-quality welds, demands good hand-eye coordination and is more complex, making it more challenging for those new to welding.
4 - Can you TIG over a MIG weld?
Yes, you can TIG weld over a MIG weld, as long as the MIG weld is clean and free from contaminants. TIG welding has a high degree of precision and can be used to refine or correct MIG welds, especially when a cleaner or more visually appealing finish is required. However, care must be taken to ensure proper penetration and fusion, and it's often best to remove any impurities, slag, or oxidation from the MIG weld beforehand to ensure the best results.
