Principle: MIG and TIG welding work by heating the metal and adding filler material while it melts to create a weld, while a plasma cutter welder uses high-temperature plasma to cut the metal. When performing MIG or TIG welding with a plasma cutter welder, the same process of heating and melting the metal is used to create a weld.
Application range: MIG and TIG welding are mainly used for thin sheet welding, while a plasma cutter welder is mainly used for cutting metal. However, a plasma cutter welder can also be used for MIG and TIG welding, especially for welding thicker plates.
Ease of use: Plasma cutter welders are usually more complex than MIG and TIG welding machines and require a higher skill level. This is because plasma cutter welders require adjustment of arc and gas flow parameters to ensure the correct plasma generation and protection. In comparison, MIG and TIG welding machines are simpler and easier to use.
Cost: Generally, plasma cutter welders are more expensive than MIG and TIG welding machines because they require more complex technology and higher manufacturing costs. However, using a plasma cutter welder for MIG or TIG welding when welding thick plates can improve production efficiency and reduce costs.
In summary, there are differences in principle, application range, ease of use, and cost between plasma cutter welders and MIG/TIG welding machines. Choosing the right welding machine depends on specific welding needs and actual circumstances.
