WLD101: TIG Welding SBU
Class Number 3-51175
Welding is the process of fusing materials together. Learn how to use the basic TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding equipment in this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. Get started creating quality weld beads on mild steel. While this class practices on thin steel, the TIG welder is capable of welding material up to 1/2” thick.
With extensive practice, TIG welding can be used with a wide variety of different metals, producing a very pure, precise, and attractive weld.
Project: No project; just guided practice with an instructor.
Prerequisite(s): None. However, successful completion of MTL103: Basic Metal Shop will provide access to the cutting and grinding tools needed for working with metal.
