In Arc Welding, this ‘spark’ between oppositely charged poles is maintained, and becomes an ‘electric arc’ which generates tremendous heat: Up to 6,000°C at the point of contact between the poles.
This raises the temperature of the metals to the point at which welding can occur.
The program shows correct and safe techniques as well as equipment knowledge and includes:
- Explanation of the Arc Welding Process and how it works
- Workshop and Equipment Safety
- Personal Safety
- ‘Arc’ or ‘Welders’ Flash
Striking the Arc
- Making a Weld Run
- Welding Faults – How they occur and how to prevent them
Correct procedures for a variety of Welds including:
- Tack Welding
- Square Edge Butt Joint
- Fillet Weld
- Outside Corner joint
- Lap Joint Weld
- Single V-Butt
- The Weaving Technique
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of operating Arc Welding equipment safely as well as to demonstrate the correct and safe way to perform some of the most common welds.
