The article offers suggestions on transitioning from stick welding to metal inert gas (MIG) welding. Several methods to get filler metal into the weld pool in MIG welding include dip transfer, globular transfer and spray transfer. It states that MIG wire has no flux to carry off contaminants. It explains that increasing voltage makes the arc progressively longer and wider so it heats a bigger area.
