2 ADVANTAGES The mig welding process provides many advantages in manual and automatic metal joining for both low and high production applications. Its combined advantages when compared to covered (stick) electrode, submerged arc, and tig are: 1)   Welding can be done in all positions. 2)   No slag removal required. 3)   High weld metal deposition rate. 4)   Overall times for weld completion about 1/2 that of covered electrode. 5)   High welding speeds. Less distortion of the workpiece. 6)   High weld quality. 7)   Large gaps filled or bridged easily, making certain kinds of repair welding more efficient. 8)   No stub loss as with covered electrode.
