WELD 104 - Introduction to Gas Metal Arc Welding, Flux Core Arc Welding and Submerged Arc Welding Theory
This course introduces students to shielding gases, regulators, flow meters and wire classification, along with maintenance and lab practices. The course will also describe the requirements for successful GMAW, FCAW and SAW welding including power requirements, sources, voltage effects, inductance and metal transfer and wire drive. Students will learn to weld two different kinds of joints. Further practice and proficiency will occur in WELD 107 Applications of Welding.
