MIG/MAG WELDING vs TIG WELDING
When choosing a welding process, more than the technical specificities of each process, it is necessary to take into account different factors such as the type of materials to be welded, the time of completion of the project and the investment that one is willing to make.
If welding is done manually, the welder's technique and experience must also be taken into account. MIG/MAG welding is usually used in these cases due to its ease of learning. TIG welding technique turns out to be more demanding, as one hand needs to hold the rod to feed the bead, while the other hand holds the torch.
The main differences between the two welding processes are essentially the following:
If your production includes a high volume of large parts with medium or large thicknesses, where speed is a factor to take into account, perhaps MIG/MAG welding is the way to go.
If, on the other hand, you have a lower production volume of smaller and thinner parts, where the focus is on the detail, probably TIG welding will bring the results you are looking for.
