A TIG-MIG arc welding is a type of hybrid arc welding process meant for high speeds. The studies were carried on a mild steel plate with the help of conventional MIG welding process and a hybrid TIG-MIG welding process and the comparisons were done on the basis of weld appearance, welding appearance and mechanical properties. This hybrid welding process has got the properties of both TIG and MIG welding when studied separately. The speed achieved by this process is high as compared to conventional arc welding discussed above. This method proves beneficial for mass production welding joints. The mechanical properties of the conventional and the hybrid type welding processes were approximately same. The current and voltage of the MAG welding were stabilized by the TIG associated with it. The distance between the wire-electrode is also a very important factor to be considered for good and strong welding.
