WSP 1212 GMAW Non Ferrous Alloys, All Positions

In this course, the theory and practice in the preparation and welding of non ferrous (aluminum) plate, in all positions, using the Gas metal Arc Welding (MIG) process are explored. Safety, equipment components, nozzle set up, travel direction, torch angles, weave and stringer techniques will be stressed. Joints are prepared and welded in accordance with AWS standards used in industry and construction. All position welds are accomplished on the appropriate plate and tests will be given according to AWS criteria. AWS testing procedures will be performed and completed according to ANSI/AWS D1.2 Aluminum Welding Code. Prerequisite: Approval from Program Coordinator.
