WLD 103 - Welding Safety & Applications
1 Lecture Hours
This course is designed to give the student an overview of the oxy-fuel cutting, welding, braze welding, and GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) processes. Safety and theory will be explained, and hands-on welding techniques will be taught in the welding lab.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Set up and shut down oxy-fuel equipment.
- Identify the proper cutting tip size for the metal thickness used.
- Apply the proper oxygen and acetylene gas pressure settings for the tip size being used.
- Describe the different torch manipulations used for the forehand technique of gas welding.
- Name the proper techniques to cut mild steel plate using the oxy-fuel cutting equipment.
- Recognize the importance of clean surfaces for brazing.
- Name the types of brazing filler rods.
- Explain the safety and theory of the gas metal arc welding process.
- Basic Theory and Safety of Set Up and Shut Down of Equipment
- Basic Theory and Safety of GMAW
