This occupation requires appropriate skills, practice, and precision. It is said that experience is the best teacher. However, in case of the welder profession, trainings are the key. Which ones?
TIG, MIG, MAG are the most basic and the most often chosen welding courses. They are chosen by beginner welders but not only. How are they different? The difference is purpose, technique, and application. When is it worth choosing electric or gas welding? When is it better to cut with an arc or oxygen? What courses will help you understand this? Here are a few hints.

MAG (Metal Active Gas) – one of the most basic welding techniques. It is based on the process of arc welding with a consumable electrode in an active gas shield. An electrode is a solid wire, which becomes a binder during welding. The weld is formed by combining the basic material and the binder with an electric arc. This is an efficient, comfortable, and easy-to-automate method. It allows for efficient welding parts in any position, both small items as well as larger ones with various thickness.
MIG (Metal Inert Gas) – a commonly used method, both in the heavy machine industry and industry of processing thin metal sheets (e.g. in the automotive industry). It is a process of arc welding with a consumable electrode, but in an inert gas shield. By using this technique, aluminium, steel, copper, and magnesium can be welded. Like in case of MAG, the weld is formed by an alloy of base material with a binder (a wire electrode). This method allows to form welds of high quality. This method can be applied using semi-automatic welding machines, which greatly facilitates the work and increases performance.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) – it is a process that, in contrast to the MAG and MIG, is executed by means of welding with a non-consumable, tungsten electrode in an inert gas shield. This technique is characterised by lower efficiency and higher costs of the use of shielding gases, but has a broad scope of application and is still willingly used. Argon, helium, and hydrogen are the most commonly used gases in case of creating a gas shield. This method is used in welding steel, low and high alloy structures, e.g. in welding pipes, but it also works in different spheres of industry, from the aviation to the astronautics.
Training is the Key to Success
There is a number of professions, in which skilled specialist are urgently sought. In order to become proficient, you do not have to complete five-year studies on a university – courses are the basics.
The average salary of a welder is valued at an average of PLN 3 thousand per month. The best earn even up to 6 thousand. Is it worth investing in trainings? Absolutely!
