What is MIG/MAG welding?

MIG/MAG welding, known in the trade as semi-automatic welding, is an arc welding process: an electric arc is struck between the consumable electrode and the workpiece. The electrode in this instance is a filler wire. This also acts directly as the filler metal. A shielding gas protects the weld pool from atmospheric gas. The shielding gas is an inert gas for MIG, and an active gas for MAG.

Filler material

A distinction is made within MIG/MAG welding between welding with solid filler wire electrodes and welding with coated filler wire electrodes. The principal coated wire electrodes are:

  • Metal-coated wire electrodes
  • Rutile-coated wire electrodes
  • Basic wire electrodes


Semi-automatic welding is a high-speed fabrication process which is used a great deal. That is why it is known as the “industry workhorse”. MIG/MAG welding is often seen in:

  • Construction
  • Pressure vessels
  • Offshore applications
