The main difference is the speed and ease of the application. Mig welding (metal inert gas) makes welding large and thick pieces of material much easier and faster than a tig machine. Tigs (tungsten inert gas) are better suited for thinner materials, while a mig machine is perfect for those large materials that need continuous clean runs. The tig set-up requires a bit more skill with balancing and timing, which can be tricky for a newer welder. Mig is a popular choice for many professional and hobby welders as it cuts production time down, which is an efficient solution to save your business time and money - or help you get your home project done and dusted in less time.
