Syllabus Information
WLD 112 - Fabrication/Welding 1
Associated Term: Winter 2022
Learning Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to: 1. Identify all views commonly found on blueprints used by welders/fabricators. 2. Identify common structural steel shapes as drawn on blueprints. 3. Identify all lines typically used to construct blueprints. 4. Conceptually integrate all views on a blueprint into the finished product. 5. Interpret welding and other symbols used on blueprints. 6. Make isometric and orthographic “shop drawings” of simple objects. Shop Fabrication: 7. Do pre-forming layout procedures, pre-fabrication, assembly processes and correctly route manpower and equipment. 8. Safely, correctly, and accurately operate several shearing, cutting and hole producing machines. 9. Demonstrate the ability to safely, correctly, and accurately use a variety of manual and powered hand tools. 10. Recognize areas of steel fabrication where punching can replace drilling and patterns or jigs can replace layout procedures. 11. Plan sequencing and expediting procedures similar to those utilized by industry. 12. Safely and efficiently move and handle materials using powered fork trucks and overhead crane. Shielded Metal Arc Welding 13. Perform oxy-fuel cutting and electric welding in a manner that demonstrates concern for the safety and welfare of themselves, others and property. 14. Cut steel to product dimensions using the manual and semi-automatic oxyacetylene cutting process. 15. Metallic arc weld in the four standard welding positions, flat, horizontal, overhead, and vertical, on practice pieces and products. 16. Remove welds using the air-carbon arc process. Wire Drive Welding: 17. Set GMAW machine controls to effect short arc and spray arc metal transfer while using solid wire of various sizes. 18. Select and properly connect to a GMAW power source appropriate shielding gases necessary to short arc and spray arc metal transfer. 19. Prepare typical industrial weld joints, make welds on these joints, and on other metal products, in the four standard positions, and perform destructive and non-destructive tests on those weldments. 20. Prepare materials, outline testing procedures, make welds, prepare test specimens, and execute testing procedures consistent with certain pre-qualified American Welding Society code tests. 21. Identify the type, cause and solution to weld defects typically associated with GMAW short arc and spray arc metal transfer. 22. Perform minor maintenance on GMAW equipment associated with the contact tip, liner and drive rolls.
