Difference Between Mig And Mag Welding

Different Protective Gases Between Mig and Mag Welding

MAG, that is, melting electrode active gas shielded welding, adds a certain amount of active gas, such as O2 and CO2, into inert gas as shielding gas.

MIG (metal inertia gas) uses inert gas of solid wire, such as argon (Ar) or helium (He) as arc medium.

Different scope of application Between Mig and Mag Welding

MAG welding service is mainly used for welding ferrous metals such as carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless steel, especially for welding stainless steel.

MIG welding service is especially suitable for welding aluminum and aluminum alloy, copper and copper alloy, stainless steel and other materials. There is almost no oxidation loss in the welding process, only a small amount of evaporation loss, and the metallurgical process is relatively simple.

Different Cleaning Requirements before Welding Between Mig and Mag Welding

MAG, the requirements for cleaning before welding are relatively loose.

MIG, strict cleaning requirements before welding.

Different Welding Power Sources Between Mig and Mag Welding

MAG, welding power supply can be DC and AC.

MIG, AC is not applicable, because the melting of welding wire is not equal in each half cycle.
