MIG Welder Job Description

A welder is a machine operator that uses a plasma cutter (the metal cutting tool) to weld pieces together.

An MIG welder is a machine that uses a wire electrode and a gas such as argon or helium.

The process that the welder uses is called MIG welding, an acronym for Metal Inert Gas welding.

MiG welding is an industrial process that has been used for over 70 years.

The process uses a wire electrode that is fed into the torch, which is created when the gas is mixed with an electrical charge.
