Synergic Mig

What is Synergic Mig?

The Dictionary definition of “Synergic” is:

“Working Together Towards a Common End”.

A Synergic Mig Welder where Welding Power (Voltage) and Wire Feed Speed are adjusted together, rather than separately, via a single Control.

Most commonly, you pre program the machine with the size Mig Welding Wire being used, the type of Welding Gas being used and sometimes the type of metal being welded.

With this information, the machine sets itself up with ideal parameters for welding. All that’s left for the operator to do is set the power output for the thickness of metal being welded.

In most cases, the adjustment that’s being made is to the Wire Feed Speed; the machine’s Synergic Program then sets the Welding Power Output to suit. So if you need more power, you simply increase the Wire Feed Speed and the machine increases the Power Output to suit.

Advantages of Synergic Mig

  1. Easy to set the machine up
  2. REALLY easy to adjust power (one control)
  3. Good Welds are easily achieved because the Synergic Program takes all the guess work out of balancing the Power and Wire Feed Speed.
  4. If necessary, the balance between Power and Wire Feed Speed can be changed from the machine’s default.
  5. Most machines have an easy to read Control Panel, so checking the set up is really easy.

Synergic Mig Applications

You can get Synergic Mig Welders in a huge range of sizes and with a huge range of potential features.

At the straightforward end of the market Synergic Migs have become hugely popular with Maintenance Workshops, Sheet Metal Workshops, Vehicle Repair Workshops and Home/DIY Workshops. This is mainly because of how easy it is to get good results on straightforward welding applications.

At the high end of the market, machines can Pulse Weld, Double Pulse Weld, make Tea and update your Social Media (I might have made those last two up 😀). But these sort of machines cost Thousands and are for specialist Industrial applications.


Synergic Mig creates a Synergy between Power & Wire Feed Speed that means they’re “Working Together Towards a Common End” in our case, producing a great weld!

You’ll find Synergic Mig is easy to set up and easy to achieve great results with the minimum of skill and experience of Mig Welding.

Once you’ve used a Synergic Mig Welder, you’re unlikely to want to go back to a conventional Mig Welder!

    Just taken delivery of an img160. Do you have an instruction manual for it?

    1. Graham says:

      Hi Chris
      Should have been in the bottom of the box! Apologies if it wasn’t, I will email you a copy.
      Kind Regards

    Hi Graham; not sure where to put a “blog” question. I am using argon/co2 gas with 160 Synergic welder. Iam getting a grey residue inside the gas shroud , is this due to too high /too low gas . The welder seems to be operating ok with a reasonable weld form..Best regards Roger

    1. Graham says:

      Hi Roger
      There are several possible reasons for this, so we would need to dig a bit deeper. Is it one of our BlueMig iMig 160 units that your using? If so, please call me to discuss, numbers on our website

  3. Roger Aslett says:

    Hi Graham; did not know where to send a question but you included in your Mig welding blog a cghart for settings for a BlueMig BM-150T regarding wire speed against material thickness; I have just purchased a BM imig synergic 160 – would you have “ball park” figures for wire speed ref. material thickness. Well pleased with my Synergic 160; it replaces a sealey mighty mig 100 which lasted 32 years !!. before it gave up the ghost.Best regards Roger

    1. Graham says:

      Hi Roger
      The iMig Synergic machines set the wire feed speed for you, based on the wire diameter and the Power you set, so you shouldn’t need to worry about it. In the unlikely event you should want more, or less wire, you can do this, it’s covered in the instructions.
      Hope that helps
      Cheers Graham

    Can this machine do TIG as well???

    1. Graham says:

      Hi Arthur
      Thanks for the question. Our Synergic Migs do have a Lift Tig function for DC Tig Welding, so the short answer is “Yes”, (you need a suitable Tig Torch). If you want to know more about DC Lift Tig, have a read of my Tig Welders article.
      If you want to know more about the Synergic Mig Welders, give me a call via our main phone number.
      Hope I’ve helped.
      Cheers Graham
