In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
In this animated and interactive object, learners follow steps that begin with choosing the correct drive roll and include feeding the electrode wire from the spool to the welding gun.
In this interactive object, learners read an explanation of the electrodes used for welding with the GMAW and FCAW processes. In two matching exercises, students test their knowledge of classification and specification numbers.
In this learning object, you’ll explore what tools should be a part of every welding tool bag.
In this interactive object, the learner reads an explanation of how various shielding gases are used in GMAW and FCAW. An exercise completes the activity.
Students view a video that shows the correct methods for starting a GTAW weld pool and adding filler. It focuses on the two problems that many students have – adding filler too soon and angling the torch so that the filler melts prematurely on the filler rod. Note: This activity is 3.6 mb.
Learners view wire feed power sources ranging from 110-volt, single phase units to 460-volt, three-phase units. A description and photos of each are provided.
In this interactive object, learners follow steps to assemble a wire feed welding torch or gun.
The learner will view videos showing the movements of each axis of the six-axis robot.
The learner will gain an understanding of the modes of axis movement for successful robot programming.
The learner will identify components of a welding robot and determine if the robot is set up correctly to avoid singularity.
The learner will identify the types of motion instructions used for programming a robot.
The learner will gain an understanding of robot motion control by comprehending the fundamentals of the encoder.
The learner will gain an understanding of how a robot uses welding instructions to perform tasks. This learning activity includes video.
The learner will gain an understanding of the inner workings of the cycloidal gear drive while watching a video and listening to an explanation of its features.
The learner will understand the design of a planetary gear drive and its advantages and disadvantages.
The learner will understand the inner workings of the strain wave gear principle.
The learner will identify the advantages and disadvantages of the four modes of GMAW transfer.
The learner will identify the steps and proper techniques for installing a wire spool on a welding machine.
Learners will follow general tips and tricks for improving their basic welding technique.
The learner will understand proper safe handling and installation procedures for shielding gas cylinders.
The learner will be able to read and interpret thread notes from a print.
The learner will understand how to view an object for interpretation in the standard orthographic format and then accurately sketch three orthographic views using 3rd angle projection.
The learner will...review the process for successfully completing a weld procedure specification for weld testing in the educational setting.
The learner will understand the structural organization of the SDS and be able to find pertinent safety information using the SDS.
