Full course description

Course Description

All arc welding processes use an arc to complete a circuit and provide heat for the melting of materials. However, arc welding processes differ in how the arc is produced and controlled, how the molten weld pool is protected from oxidation, and whether it uses a consumable or nonconsumable electrode. In this module, we focus on the process of flux core arc welding.

By the end of this module, you will be able to

• Describe the process of FCAW

• List common applications for FCAW

• Explain the advantages and limitations of FCAW

• Describe the modes of metal transfer

• Understand process-specific information and variables
