WLD 159 - Wire Drive Welding 3

1-4 Credit(s)

Technology and application of the wire drive process using self shielded cored wire is taught. Preparing weld test specimens and performing weld tests is included in this course.

Prerequisite: WLD 143  or instructor consent.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

1. Explain and demonstrate the effects of various industrial shielding gases on performance parameters of ferrous and non-ferrous solid electrodes.

2. Make power source adjustments necessary to the effective operation of submerged are welding (SAW), and gas metal are welding of ferrous and non-ferrous wires in short arc, spray and pulsed spray transfer modes (GMAW-S and GMAW-P).

3. Identify the type, cause and solution to weld defects typically associated with wire drive processes.

4. Prepare materials, outline testing procedures, make welds, prepare test specimens, and execute testing consistent with standards established by American Welding Society.

5. Demonstrate proficiency when welding with SAW, ferrous and non-ferrous GMAW, GMAW-S and GMAW-P to a level equal to, or better than, welders who are industrially experienced in these processes.
