INWE 45040 - Welding Basic Joints on Stainless

1.25 CR
TIG welding is a combination of controlled electricity, gas, and water. Complexity and relatively high costs are the principal disadvantages. Speed, adaptability, and quality of product overcome the disadvantages in the hands of a skilled welder. In this module, the welding student will learn the principles of TIG welding and the importance of keeping equipment in good working order. The student will apply the steps for welding aluminum to the welding of stainless steel. The student will develop their own feel for stainless steel and other metals through practice.

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