WELD 132 Thermal Cutting Processes

Students will be introduced to the theory and techniques needed to set up and use OFW (oxy fuel welding) equipment safely. Students will demonstrate welds with and without filler metal. Instruction in OFB (oxy fuel brazing) for the common welding joints in the flat position will also be introduced. Students will learn the theory ad techniques to use an OFC (oxy fuel cutting) torch, PAC (plasma arc cutting), CAC-A (air carbon arc cutting) and track torch for cutting various thickness of metal. Students will receive instruction on the principles of metallurgy associated with oxyacetylene welding and cutting processes. Students will be tested and qualified to the requirements of AWS SENSE QC10, Specification for the Qualification and Certification for Entry Level Welders. Prerequisite: Instructor permission and Program Application.
