Metal inert gas (MIG) welding is a gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process that heats a continuous solid wire electrode and feeds it from a welding gun into a weld pool between two base materials that melt together into a joint. The welding gun also feeds an inert shielding gas alongside the wire electrode to help protect the process from airborne contamination.
