WELD 120 : Beginning Welding and Metal Fabrication II
Continuation of WELD 110. Includes the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process, electrodes, oxy-acetylene flame cutting, introduction to plasma and carbon arc cutting, gouging, and the fundamentals of metallurgy. Learn to layout, cut, prepare, fit-up, and weld together metal to repair parts and fabricate projects using SMAW.
WELD 110 or permission of instructor.
- Upon completion of studying Metallurgy, the student will fully understand how Metals and Alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials.
- lt is important to understand how metals (ferrous and non-ferrous) can be made stronger, how they can be shaped by casting, forging, forming, machining processes, and how also welding can alter properties of metals and alloys.
