Customized Welding

We begin by mastering the basics of structural welding on plate, you will learn to properly execute fillet, lap, and groove welds. After the basics of plate welding are completed, there is potential to move on to pipe welding, if applicable to your welding goals. We will utilize TIG and/or combo processes when learning to weld pipe, keeping in congruence with industry standard. Please keep in mind that pipe welding is a highly sought-after skill, with excellent pay, but it will take more than one 5-week course to become adept enough to pass your tests.   Standard plate tests as relevant to manufacturing include 2G, 3G, and 4G positions; Pipe tests will cover 2G, 5G, and 6G positions.

We cover the gamut from semi-auto GMAW (Mig) and FCAW(Flux), to GTAW (Tig) and SMAW (Stick). You will learn these processes on carbon steel, there is the possibility of learning to weld exotic alloys, if you have shown enough skill to proceed to that level OR have experience welding in industry and are looking to develop existing skills. Exotic alloys will not be offered at the beginner’s level, as a foundation of knowledge and welding ability is necessary here.

Welding

For the following welding phase classes, students should bring the following on the first day of class:

  • Welding hood
  • Safety glasses
  • Gloves – heavy and thin
  • Welpers (needle-nosed pliers)
  • Boots
  • Welding cap
  • Green or leather sleeves (optional)

PHASE I: In this class you will learn welding fundamentals including safety equipment, welding joints and positions, welding and cutting processes, oxyfuel gas cutting equipment and supplies, and plasma arc cutting.

PHASE II: This class focuses on shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and stick welding. Learn to select the correct electrode, current, and polarity for welding with the SMAW process. You will also learn how to strike a welding arc and create acceptable welds on all five basic joints in all positions.

PHASE III: Phase III focuses on gas metal and flux-cored arc welding (GMAW & FCAW) and MIG-wire feed welding. Learn how to select the proper arc welding machine, wire feeder, shielding gas, flow rate, and welding wire type to produce an acceptable weld in all types of joints in all positions.

PHASE IV: Phase IV focuses on gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), TIG, print reading, weld symbols, weld gauges, and inspecting and testing welds. Learn to select the proper welding source, polarity, shielding gas, flow rate, tungsten type and diameter, nozzle size, and filler rod to produce an acceptable weld. You will also learn how to read prints, inspect, and test your welds.

PHASE V: Phase V focuses on pipe and tube welding. Learn to weld pipe and tube using SMAW, GMAW, and GTAW welding processes. You will also learn about non-destructive evaluation methods for pipe weld quality.

Welding on the Farm

Welding is a crucial skill for farmers that can save you both time and money, while also increasing productivity. With a basic understanding of welding, you can repair broken equipment, fabricate new parts, and even create your own machinery.

This course focuses on MIG welding, which is the most common type of welding for farmers. It is relatively easy to master and does not require a lot of equipment.
