Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

This course provides the student with a basic technical understanding of gas tungsten arc welding, arc characteristics and welding safety. It provides training to develop the skill necessary to make quality gas tungsten arc welds on 16 and 11 gauge mild steel, .060” and .062” gauge stainless steel and/or .125” aluminum using alternating current. Weld characteristics of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum will also be discussed. Information on pulsed current may be included to prepare the student for more detailed applications.
