Course Summary

Introduction

A number of welding processes are commonly used to assemble metallic components. The most familiar type is arc welding. This type of welding produces a weld pool through the intense heat emitted by an electric arc.

This course covers the safety factors related to arc welding (handling, setting-up, adjustments, control), the operating principles of the various electric arc welding processes, and how to select the proper electrodes depending on the metals and the welding conditions.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • electricity basics,
  • arc welding machines,
  • arc welding processes,
  • electrodes (consumables),
  • setting-up an arc welding unit,
  • weld beads,
  • troubleshooting an arc welding unit,
  • preventive maintenance, and
  • suggestions for practical exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify all safety factors related to arc welding (handling, setting-up, adjustments, control).
  • Identify and describe the operating principles of the various electric arc welding processes.
  • Select the proper electrodes depending on the metals and the welding conditions.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
