AWLD 216 - Intro to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

8 credits (Hrs: 8 Lec)
Through classroom and/or lab/shop learning and assessment activities, students in this course will learn the gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process on thin wall stainless steel and Inconel, demonstrate the safe and correct set-up of the GTAW work station, and relate GTAW electrode and filler metal classifications with base metals along with proper filler metal storage. They will perform basic GTAW welds on selected weld joints including flat butt welds, lap joints, and tee joints. After the completion of all weld joints students will learn advanced GTAW techniques as they pertain to the aerospace fabrication industry. Students will learn lean manufacturing ideas and how to manufacture parts safely and efficiently.
