WLD 101 - Welding Fundamentals
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours
This is a course on theory and safety procedures. Students develop competency in the following shielded metal-arc welding procedures: stringer beads, butt welds, and T-joints in the flat and horizontal positions. Students become familiar with oxy-fuel flame cutting equipment and its application.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Set up and shut down oxy-fuel equipment safely.
- Identify the three (3) oxy-fuel flame adjustments.
- Name the three (3) oxy-fuel flame configurations.
- Know the safe practices in shielded metal arc welding.
- Name the various mild steel electrodes used on direct current reverse polarity.
- Demonstrate multi-layered welds in the horizontal position using E7018 electrodes.
- Identify the difference between AC and DC currents.
