The learner will understand and be able to apply the common welding variables of the GMAW process.
The learner will identify the advantages and disadvantages of the four modes of GMAW transfer.
This module is identify parts of the GMAW wire feed equipment.
How to set up the GTAW welding unit
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 interactive object, the learner reads an explanation of how various shielding gases are used in GMAW and FCAW. An exercise completes the activity.
In this interactive object, learners follow steps to assemble a wire feed welding torch or gun.
This module will guide you thru the use of welding coupons in the welding process.
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.
