GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) NU0085B

More commonly called MIG welding this welding type is the most widely used and perhaps the most easily mastered type of welding for industry and home use. The GMAW process is suitable for fusing mild steel, stainless-steel as well as aluminium.

GTAW (Tungsten Inert Gas) NU0085C
