AWLD 226 - Adv Precision Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

8 credits (Hrs: 16 lab)
Through classroom and/or lab/shop learning and assessment activities, students in this course will continue to learn more advanced gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) processes on thin and thick 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. They will perform advanced GTAW welds on selected weld joints including 6G tube welds, and 5F tube to plate fillet welds. Students will perform visual inspection of GTAW welds to AWS D17.1 standards. After the completion of all weld joints students will learn advanced GTAW techniques as they pertain to the aerospace fabrication industry. Students will learn to weld parts on a rotating turntable and use fixtures to build parts to tight tolerances. Students will also learn and demonstrate the importance of safety in the welding lab.
