INWE 25030 - Strike an Arc and Run Stringer Beads

0.67 CR
In this module, the welding student will develop the knowledge and skills to successfully strike an arc and run stringer beads with both E6010 and E7018 electrodes. All welds must meet criteria established by the American Welding Society.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Describe the fundamentals of shielded metal arc welding, as it relates to the AWS, ASME, API, and other welding codes and standards.
  2. Be able to identify the SMAW process in comparison to other arc welding processes.
  3. Identify the basic SMAW electrode numbering system as established by the American Welding Society for each electrode.
  4. Select the correct machine, amperage, polarity, and size electrodes for a given weld application.
  5. Produce various weld beads, flat position lap, and T-joints with various SMAW electrodes.
  6. Identify various weld defects and their characteristics.
  7. Execute correct metal preparation for open root groove welds.
