Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) also referred to as MIG (metal inert gas) is one of the key processes in industrial manufacturing. MIG welding guide provides comprehensive, easy-to-understand coverage of this widely used process. The reader is presented with a variety of topics from the choice of shielding gases, filler materials, welding equipment and lots of practical advice. The book provides an overview of new developments in various processes such as: flux cored arc welding; new high productive methods; pulsed MIG welding; MIG-brazing; robotic welding applications and occupational health and safety. This is essential reading for welding engineers, production engineers, designers and all those involved in industrial manufacturing.
