Applications of MIG Wire Feeder Welders
For hobbyist, job shop, and light industrial applications, there are MIG welding machines available that have the wire feeder built into them. This reduces the complexity of purchasing and setting up the MIG welding equipment because it is all included. They are also more readily transported because they do not require the extra disassembly that larger MIG power sources do that have separate wire feeders. These machines are perfect for applications where spools less than 50 pounds are going to be used and where arc-on time will not be near 100%. For applications requiring higher duty cycles and drums of welding wire, larger MIG welding equipment should be considered.
