This Class provides an introduction to oxyacetylene welding techniques on ferrous metals, use of Oxy-fuel gasses and flame cutting. Includes safety procedures, basic weld joint design, expansion, contraction, and residual stress in the welding and brazing of metal.
Students will be challenged to demonstrate proper set-up and break-down procedures in the use of oxyacetylene welding equipment, and apply welding skills necessary to weld with oxyacetylene process in the flat, horizontal welding positions. Students will also practice techniques in oxyacetylene cutting.
Students will learn to differentiate between industry standard welding inspection practices and how they apply to specific welding applications.
The student will learn to operate OAW equipment using industry standard safety practices. Demonstrate the ability to produce quality welds using the OAW process.
