|WELD 2330 - Advanced GTAW (TIG)|
Prerequisite: WELD 1040 (can be taken concurrently), WELD1330; or permission of instructor.
This course introduces students to advanced concepts associated with using the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or (TIG) process to produce fillet and groove welds in the vertical and overhead positions in carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. Emphasis is on proper weld joint design, familiarization with advanced power sources, set-up of equipment, trouble shooting, and the electrode manipulation techniques that must be utilized to produce high-quality welds. Laboratory experience includes project-based learning, blueprint reading, and familiarization with basic concepts relating to welding economics and cost-effective manufacturing. At the conclusion of this course students take either a 3F,4F,5F, 6F,3G or 4G pass/fail welder qualification test using the GTAW (TIG) process. An Industry Recognized Certification of Qualification will be awarded to students passing the test. The student must furnish: long pants; welding helmet (shade #10 or above); safety glasses; work gloves; welding jacket; leather work boots, preferably steel toe; 8” crescent wrench; soapstone and holder; tape measure; combination square, chipping hammer, wire brush, tool bag, center punch, and 12oz ball peen hammer. 4 1/2” grinder is optional.
