Setting Up a Wire Feeder for GMAW
By Dave Hoffman
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 simulation activity, an electrician troubleshoots a defective water pump that will not start. To find the problem, the learner selects the appropriate blueprints that must be referred to while performing the troubleshooting steps. Then safety protocols will be followed, such as making lockout-tag out installations and donning PPE items before taking measurements with a multimeter to locate the faulty component.
