Upon completion of the course, the student should have the ability to weld thin gauge stainless steel and titanium for use in various industries including aircraft, refrigeration, medical and many others.
Prerequisites: The student must have successfully passed the HIWT Gas Tungsten Arc Welding Basic course. If this course has not been completed, the following prerequisite tests are required:
Pass a visual test on 11-gauge carbon steel welded in the horizontal position including a lap joint, T-joint and outside corner, and pass a written test. Prerequisite testing charge is $150.00.
Course objective: To familiarize the student with the manipulative technique and the characteristics of stainless steel and titanium welding. To be able to produce quality welds on thin gauge materials.
Course content: This course provides the student with a thorough understanding of gas tungsten arc welding on thin gauge stainless steel and titanium. The student will learn to develop the skill necessary to produce quality welds on .040” to .062” stainless steel and titanium in the flat and horizontal positions. In addition, information will be presented on the metallurgy and weld characteristics of titanium and stainless steel.
Testing: To pass this course, the student is required to take one written test. The student is also required to pass tests on a five-plate assembly on .045” stainless steel including an outside corner, butt joint, t-joint, and lap joints with and without filler, a visual tee joint and lap joints with and without filler on .062” titanium in the horizontal position, and submit .062” titanium square groove butt joints in the flat position for x-ray.
