Advanced GMAW Applications

Provided by: ToolingU

“Advanced GMAW Applications” provides an overview of various specialized GMAW processes. When performing GMAW on stainless steel or aluminum, welders must be aware of several factors. Many advanced processes use power sources that offer different types of control, such as waveform control, adaptive control, and synergic control. Advanced GMAW processes include pulse transfer, precision pulse, Surface Tension Transfer, and AC aluminum pulse. GMAW is also well-suited to automation. Robotic GMAW is one of the most popular forms of automated welding. After taking this class, users will be prepared to learn to perform more specialized and advanced GMAW processes. These processes are becoming increasingly popular because they consistently produce quality welds without the same drawbacks as conventional methods. Understanding advanced and specialized GMAW processes is important to remaining competitive in modern welding.
