WLD201: TIG Welding 2 - Aluminum
Class Number 175-54032

After completing the TIG Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, you can try your skills in a different material.

Aluminum has characteristics that require specific equipment setup, metal preparation and torch operation. In this class, you will practice specific joints and improve weld bead quality under the guidance of an instructor. Lap, butt, corner and fillet welds will all be discussed and individual students will perform at their own rates. Emphasis will be placed on visual inspection of welds and heat zone theory, so that you gain a better understanding of what a quality weld joint really looks like.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of the TIG Welding SBU.

Safety: You must wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt in natural fibers in the Hot Shop, and remember to always wear closed-toed shoes at TechShop.
