Thinking about a career in engineering? Do you have a specific interest in welding?
This course is ideal for anyone who want to learn the fundamental aspects of welding with TIG equipment.
TIG welding is a slower process compared to MIG, but it produces a more precise weld and can be used at lower amperages for thinner metal, as well as exotic metals.
Although it requires more time to learn, TIG welding is a skill worth having in the engineering field. It’s a popular choice of welding, particularly when high quality, precision welding is required.
This basic introduction programme will take place at the College's Portland Street Campus over two evenings.
The next available sessions will be in October. You will need to bring safety footwear (steel toe cap boots) and work clothes. All other equipment will be provided.
If for any reason the course does not run on the specified dates, we'll contact you before the event and payment will be refunded in full.
Characteristics of the TIG welding process
In TIG welding, an arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the metal being welded. Gas is fed through the torch to shield the electrode and molten weld pool. If filler wire is used, it is added to the weld pool separately.
