Introduction to Welding Processes

Provided by: ToolingU

“Introduction to Welding Processes” provides a comprehensive overview of the most commonly used welding processes, including oxyfuel welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, flux-cored arc welding, and shielded metal arc welding. In addition, it continues to develop students’ understanding of measurements in welding and covers the Welding Procedure Specification from writing through testing and finally use. This class continues to develop the general understanding of welding begun in “Introduction to Welding” with a more comprehensive overview of each of the most common welding processes. It covers welding variables and presents an in-depth discussion of welding discontinuities that is continued in “Overview of Weld Defects.”
