This program covers many advanced topics in TIG welding, including welding chrome moly steel, stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, bronze, copper, and titanium. It also shows how to weld castings made from aluminum, magnesium, and bronze.
Goes through the entire welding process step-by-step, and gives clear descriptions of how each factor affects the weld, including wire speed, voltage, stickout, gun angle, travel speed, and gas flow. Also covers plug welds, patch panels, welding aluminum, and using flux core wire.
Covers the basic processes used for TIG welding, covering proper machine setup, joint preparation, electrode selection and preparation, torch technique, and perhaps most importantly, what to check for when things go wrong.
Introduces metals, metallurgy, and metalworking. Discusses the properties of metals, including their mechanical properties. Examines several industrial manufacturing processes. Covers iron and standard steels. Explains the different kinds of heat treatment and their usage. Discusses some techniques of working with copper, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, lead, nickel, tin, and zinc.
