Orbital Welding TIG/Pipe

This course introduces automated tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding hardware, equipment, and processes required to apply specific, accurate, automated, and consistently repetitive pipe welds. Emphasis is placed on proper identification of automated welding process variables, how each relates to the functionality of orbital equipment and components, and how changes in variables directly influence weld quality. Upon completion, students should be able to produce quality pipe welds through the appropriate operation and control of automated TIG welding equipment.
