INWE 40030 - Welding Basic Joints in All Positions

1.67 CR
Upon correctly setting up a gas metal arc and a Flux Cored Arc welding system, the welding student will develop the skills to weld basic joints in all positions utilizing push and pull techniques. All welds will meet American Welding Society standards.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Demonstrate the knowledge of the gas metal arc welding process by correctly setting up a GMAW system, including voltage, amperage, shielding gas, and all variables.
  2. Execute correct metal preparation for GMAW.
  3. Execute correct metal preparation for GMAW.
  4. Describe the fundamentals of Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW).
  5. Identify the GMAW process in comparison to other arc welding processes.
  6. Identify the basic GMAW electrode numbering system as established by the American Welding Society.
  7. Produce various weld beads, flat position welds, out of position welds.
  8. Produce GMAW Aluminum welds in the flat position.
