WELD 1760 - Advanced Shielded Metal Arc Welding

This course covers equipment and setup, electrodes and electrode selection in shielded metal arc welding (SMAW).  Course training utilizes the American Welding Society (AWS) standards of acceptability to develop the manual skills necessary to produce good quality single and multiple pass welds in all positions using larger diameter electrodes of the low hydrogen, non-low hydrogen filler metals commonly used in industry to the structural steel welding code.  Joints welded simulate butt-beam to beam, beam to column splicing, heavy plate and heavy equipment welding.  Students study the skills covered in the AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Welding Code with low hydrogen electrodes, unlimited plate thickness, with or without backing in all positions.
