Utilizing a mixture of theory classes and practical lab exercises, students in this course will safely learn the basics of industrial arc welding and industrial cutting. Students will practice all position welding on carbon steel, using various processes such as shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), and flux core arc welding (FCAW) with electrodes commonly utilized in industry. The industrial cutting operations covered include plasma arc cutting and gouging, carbon arc gouging, oxy-fuel cutting and gouging, and saw cutting. Special focus will be on cutting safety and techniques specific to industrial settings, including the removal of nuts from bolts by gouging. This course is designed to prepare students for Advanced Industrial Welding Processes.  (Co-requisites: INDM102W, INDM106W, INDM 122W, INDM124W)
