AUTB-1160 - Welding Theory

Study of welding processes used in the auto collision repair industry including oxyacetylene fusion welding, brazing, G.M.A.W., aluminum processes, plasma arc cutting and resistance spot welding. Safety factors and equipment selection, application of the theory of expansion and contraction, and the effects of distortion and its control. Heavy emphasis on the MIG welding and structural spot welding used in structural unibody and non-structural panel replacement because of the heavy use of high strength steels used in the modern automobile following I-CAR (Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair) welding certification standards.
