Metal arc gas welding


Active gas shielded metal arc welding MAG / Metal inert gas welding MIG

General

The gas shielded metal arc welding is used in almost every area of metal processing. The area of use extends from welding thin sheets in the car body construction to the joining of thick-walled parts in steel construction or heavy engineering. Steels are welded with active shielded gases (MAG), non iron metals are welded with inert shielded gases (MIG).

Main fields of use

  • Steel construction
  • Automotive and mechanical engineering
  • Tank and plant construction

One-day course - basic level following DVS®-IIW 1111

Initial education with a course duration of 80 hours

Every participant with regular attendence receives a certificate.
Graduation with a throat seam welding exam according to DIN 287-1 respectively DIN EN ISO 9606 is possible.

Notes

  • course materials are included in the costs.
  • leather aprons, gloves and safety glasses will be provided for a fee.
  • Please bring working clothes and safety boots.

Further welding training

Participation requirements

  • Training to become a certified welder according to DIN EN 287 respectively DIN EN ISO 9606
  • basic knowledge is assumed.
  • For participants with previous knowledge the course duration can be shortened.

Special courses

MSG thin sheet welding course duration approx. 7 days plate thickness < 3 mm
MSG fillet weld welding course duration approx. 5 days plate thickness > 3 mm
MSG plate welding course duration approx. 10 days plate thickness > 3 mm
MSG tube welding course duration approx. . 10 days wall thickness< 3 mm
MSG tube welding course duration approx. 20 days wall thickness > 3 mm
MIG fillet weld welding course duration approx. 5 days plate thickness approx. 3 – 8 mm
MIG plate welding course duration approx. 10 days plate thickness approx. 4 – 8 mm

Courses for special welding methods e.g. with modified electric arcs are possible per request.


Pulse arc welding

 

General

The pulsed arc is used to weld unalloyed, high-alloyed steel and aluminium in the lower or middle power range.

Benefits

  • Less thermal input than with standard welding
  • short-circuit and splash free droplet transitions is possible into the highest power ranges
  • even seam surfaces
  • Easier heat control thus being well suited for positional welding.

Application area

  • MIG soldering
  • AI-/CrNi-Constructions
  • Automotive and mechanical engineering
  • Steel construction

Notes

  • course materials are included in the costs.
  • leather aprons, gloves and safety glasses will be provided for a fee.
  • Please bring working clothes and safety boots.
  • Exam fees are dependent on the scope of the exam, they'll be calculated after the price list for welding exams.

Duration
