This conference is designed to provide a basic understanding of aluminum welding and will include the following topics:

  • Aluminum welded applications and why we are seeing a continued increase of aluminum being used in industry
  • An overview of the aluminum alloy identification system
  • Basic aluminum metallurgy – how aluminum is strengthened (alloying, strain hardening, heat treatment) and the effect of welding on aluminum base metals
  • Metal Preparation and Storage – aluminum oxide, humidity, and pre-weld cleaning
  • The welding processes commonly used to weld aluminum – GMAW & GTAW
  • Weld discontinuities – porosity, incomplete fusion, and hot cracking
  • Filler metal selection for aluminum welding
  • AWS D1.2 Structural Welding Code – Aluminum – welding procedures, welder performance, and inspection

BENEFITS

• 16 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) toward all recertifications
• D1.2/D1.2M:2014 Structural Welding Code Aluminum included
