Arc welding is a technic that uses an electric arc to generate heat and weld the metals together. It was a process that was invented by Sir Humphry Davy and developed in the 1800’s. It’s used heavily in the mass production of vehicles. It works by binding the metal components directly to each other.
MIG welding is a process similar to that of a Arc welder, but it uses gas in it’s heating process. It was developed in the 19th century, again by Sir Humphry Davy, who after discovering Arc welding went on to develop this process. It is used primarily for welding aluminium and other non-ferrous metals. MIG and TIG both use metal fillers in the process of binding the metal together.
Welding accessories therefore include the rods and metals used in fixing the metalwork together. It also includes gas cylinders of none reactive gases used to shield the welds. This stops the metal from becoming brittle after the welding process has been done. The gas is sprayed onto the metal as it is welded and made stronger for it.
