MIG 2 continues to develop welding techniques for all of the basic weld joints while focusing on filet welds. In addition, you will learn how to cut with a plasma torch and prep metal to be welded.
learn the basics of Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG). Development of limb independence and torch control. Gaining a better understanding of the elements of welding in order to control them as you move through the weld zone with the TIG torch.
Have you heard of “stack of dimes”? That was originated in TIG welding. In this class you will learn how to identify a good TIG weld and develop arc control technique.
Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), informally known as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.
