Process MAG welding (Metal Active Gas)
The most commonly used arc-welding technique for sheet metal welding, mainly of steel. Typical applications include bicycle frames and automobil repair.

The wire electrode serves both as filler material and as arc electrode. The molten material is protected from oxygen by chemical reactions between an active gas, like CO2, and additives in the wire electrode.
