MIG welding is an arc welding process in which a solid wire is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. A gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. In fact, MIG stands for metal inert gas. The technical name for it is gas metal arc welding (or GMAW), and the slang name for it is wire welding.

The MIG process enables the welder to make most types of fabrication and maintenance/repair welds on material from 24-gauge up to 2-1/2-inch thick. Wesbell’s CWB certified welders and fabricators are ready for all your welding needs. Contact us and let’s talk about your project.

  • In Canada structural welders must be qualified under CSA W47.1, W47.2 and W186, which are administered by the Canadian Welding Bureau (part of the CWB Group). This same qualification process is also useful for non-structural work, as the resulting CWB Ticket is the only nationally recognized credential within Canada. All Wesbell Welders are CWB certified, we adhere to the processes and procedures as outlined by CWB.
  • Our thorough Quality Assurance process ensures that all our projects meet the exacting standards of our clients while adhering to strict industry standards.
