This program is an excellent introduction to the methods of joining metals. It discusses the advantages of welding over non-welding methods and details both fusion and non-fusion methods. Students will gain insight into the required equipment and operating procedures, preparation of materials for welding and specific safety considerations. Non-fusion methods such as Soldering, Brazing, Bronze Welding and Spot Welding are outlined. Fusion methods such as Shield Metallic Arc Welding, MIG, TIG and Oxy Acetylene are demonstrated. Specific joints, such as Butt Joints and Fillet Joints are explained.
