Example text

This process used a continuously fed solid wire with an inert gas shield, and later became known as metal inert gas (MIG) welding. With the introduction of COz and mixed gas shields it acquired the name gas metal arc (GMA) or MIG/MAG, where MAG stands for metal active gas. The term GMA will be used here. Solid wires with continuous current At low electrode current densities in argon with electrode positive the arc melts the wire progressively until the drop so formed falls under its own weight.

This is not of much consequence for metals having a face-centred cubic structure, such as austenitic chromium-nickel steel, aluminium and copper, but the notch-ductility of ferritic steels is adversely affected by coarse grain. For such materials it is necessary to control the heat input rate. The heat input rate also affects the cooling rate of the weldment. 61 so that high rates of heat input are associated with slow cooling rates and vice versa. This may be significant in welding of ferritic steel where rapid cooling may increase both the hardness and risk of hydrogen cracking.
