WLD 102 - Advanced Welding
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours
Prerequisites: WLD 101
A course on out-of-position shielded metal-arc welding with emphasis on proper heats, electrode selections, and AC/DC currents. Welding positions include horizontal, vertical, and overhead.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Identify the various amperage ranges of mild steel electrodes as per their diameter.
- Set-up the welding power source for direct current reverse polarity.
- Differentiate between direct current reverse polarity and direct current straight polarity.
- Differentiate various techniques that are used for vertical welding and overhead welding.
- Identify the electrodes used for in position welding and out of position welding.
- Identify the difference between a long arc and a short arc by slag evaluation.
- Name the different weave techniques used in vertical welding.
- T-Joint and Lap Joints
- Vertical Up Welding
- Overhead Welding
- Use of Various Electrodes
- Safety Issues
