Course description: This class provides advanced Gas Metal Arc Welding techniques on steel with emphasis on tubing. Includes safety procedures, common weld joint design, with tubing expansion, contraction, and residual stress in the welding of various shapes of tubing, in all positions.
Course objectives: Students will be challenged to demonstrate proper set-up, and break down procedures in the use of gas metal arc welding equipment, and apply welding skills necessary to weld with the process in all positions with joint configurations applicable to round and square tubing. Also have the ability to troubleshoot welding process.
Lecture: Students will continue to learn differences between industry standard welding, inspection practices and how they best apply to given welding applications, with the emphasis on all position weldments of different tubular shapes.
Lab: The student will learn to operate, and troubleshoot GMAW equipment using industry standard safety practices. Demonstrate the ability to produce high quality welds in all positions on tubular shapes using the GMAW process.
