INWE 45050 - GTAW of Aluminum out of Position

1.67 CR
Many times parts that need to be welded cannot always be done in the flat position. Frequently, welds must be done in the horizontal, vertical, or overhead position. Since welding in these positions is somewhat more difficult, more practice is required to develop these skills. In this module, the welding student will develop the knowledge and skills to run beads in three positions when welding the four basic joints: butt, tee, lap, and corner.

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.
