Course description: Advanced welding techniques in Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW) in the horizontal, vertical and overhead positions; also correct setting of current and voltage on power sources. Emphasis is also on proper techniques in all welding positions.
Course objectives: Students completing this course will be able to successfully produce fillet welds, and groove with backing strip in the vertical and overhead positions with 71M and NR-232 welding electrodes.
Lecture: This course provides the knowledge to identify the principles of (FCAW); describe arc welding operations of fillet and groove joints; and explain weld size and profiles; prepare test plates; perform fillet welds in the overhead position; perform bevel groove welds with backing plates in various positions.
Lab: The student will perform basic skills to layout to fabricate, and produce welded metal samples. Read and interpret engineering drawings to American Welding Society standards. Use welding process and procedure applications. Perform set-up and operations for FCAW process.
