FLUX CORE WELDING (FCAW)

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW or FCA) is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process. FCAW requires a continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant-voltage or, less commonly, a constant-current welding power supply. An externally supplied shielding gas is sometimes used, but often the flux itself is relied upon to generate the necessary protection from the atmosphere, producing both gaseous protection and liquid slag protecting the weld. The process is widely used in construction because of its high welding speed and portability.

Course Outline

  • Introduction to Flux-Cored Arc Welding
  • Principles of Flux Cored Arc Welding
  • Equipment set up and system layout
  • Operating techniques and practice
  • Measuring & Drawings
  • Accessories & Specialty Equipment
  • FCAW functions and how to do cutting procedures using cutting torch or gauging.
  • Students will weld in various positions.
  • A skills test after each welding position which consists of a visual inspection and bend test.
  • Learn the practical skills and techniques associated with the (FCAW) process to join materials in all weld positions, heat, cut and gouge materials, interpret engineering drawings
  • Perform a fillet and groove and use a variety of hand and power tools/equipment to fabricate metal components.
  • Safety personal protective equipment & proper safety

Purpose of the course

-This course is for people requiring the knowledge and skills to work or seek employment as a Flux Cored Arc Welder (FCAW) in a metal fabrication or allied engineering industry.

-The student will learn the practical skills and techniques associated with the (FCAW) process to join materials in all weld positions, heat, cut and gouge materials, interpret engineering drawings and use a variety of hand and power tools/equipment to fabricate metal components.

-Flux Core Arc Welding course is designed to teach students about arc welding safety and the flux core arc welding process (FCAW) and proper techniques for welding.

-Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to perform general entry level structural welding in fabrication shop, machine shop, petrochemical, power plant and refineries.
