MIG/MAG welding offers wide range of applications.
MIG welding uses an inert shielding gas, such as argon or helium, that does not react with the weld pool. MAG welding, on the other hand, uses an active shielding gas, such as carbon dioxide or oxygen, that does react with the weld pool. MAG welding is more common than MIG welding due to the benefits provided by the active gas.
Robotic MIG/MAG welding is the use of robots to automate the MIG/MAG welding process. In this application, a robotic arm is equipped with a welding gun and wire feeder, and is programmed to follow a predetermined welding path. The robot is able to perform the weld with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability, resulting in consistent, high-quality welds.
Robotic MIG/MAG welding is commonly used in industries where there is a high demand for welding, such as automotive manufacturing and heavy construction. It allows for a faster welding process and can increase productivity and efficiency in these industries. Robot MIG/MAG welding can also be used in hazardous environments, as the robot can perform the weld without exposing a human operator to the potential dangers.
