The pulsed MIG success story

September 2011
Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metal Fabricator;Sep/Oct2011, Vol. 52 Issue 5, p24
The article provides information on the pulsed metal inert gas (MIG) used for welding. The article further states the introduction of inverters in welding machines was an innovation that led to the success of the MIG welding technology. The article also states that faster deposition rate and travel speed, less spatter and more flexibility welding positions are the key features of this technology and that it has limited use in aluminum and stainless steal works.
