MIG (metal inert gas) welding is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal(s), which heats the work-piece metal(s), causing them to melt and join.
TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.
Stick welding, also known as manual metal arc welding or shielded metal arc welding is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode coated in flux to lay the weld. An electric current, in the form of either alternating current or direct current between the electrode and the metals to be joined.
Stud welding is a similar to flash welding where a bolt or spealty formed nut is welded onto another metal part. The bolts may be automatically fed into the spot welder. Weld nuts generally have a flange with small numbs that melt to form the weld. Studs have a necked down, un-threaded area for the same purpose. Weld studs are used in stud welding systems.
