Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: WLD 201 

This is a course on the theory and application of gas metal-arc welding (GMAW), flux-cored arc welding (FCAW), and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) processes.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  2. Use gas metal-arc welding equipment
  3. Apply nozzle to work distance and gun travel angle according to metal thickness and wire size.
  4. Demonstrate the theory and application of flux-cored arc welding.
  5. Apply welding techniques using the flux-cored arc welding process in the horizontal and vertical up positions.
  6. Recognize the color code system of Tungsten electrode identification.
  7. Identify the proper Tungsten to use for various metals.
  8. Comprehend the proper current and or polarity to set on the power source when using the GTAW welding process.
  9. Apply various welding techniques when using GTAW welding process in flat and horizontal welding positions.
