Course overview

The Following

  1. Safety Measures:
  • Understand and follow safety guidelines provided by your employer or industry standards.
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, welding helmet, welding gloves, and flame-resistant clothing.
  • Keep the work area clean and free of clutter to prevent accidents.
  • Be aware of electrical hazards and follow proper grounding procedures.
  • Know the location and proper use of fire extinguishers and other safety equipment.
  • Use caution when handling hot materials and sharp tools.
  • Be aware of the risks associated with welding, such as electric shock, burns, and eye injuries, and take necessary precautions to minimize these risks.

2. Cleaning of Fixtures:

    • Regularly clean the welding fixture to remove debris, welding spatter, and contaminants.
    • Use appropriate cleaning tools such as wire brushes, scrapers, or grinder discs to remove excess spatter or buildup.
    • Ensure that the fixture is completely clean and free of any obstruction before placing new workpieces to ensure proper alignment and fit-up.
  1. Manual Check Fixture:
  • Before starting the welding process, visually inspect the fixture for any damage or wear.
  • Before starting the welding process, visually inspect the fixture for any damage or wear.
  • Ensure that all components of the fixture are securely in place and properly aligned.
  • Verify that any clamps or holding devices are functioning correctly and will provide adequate support during welding.
  • Check for any loose or damaged electrical connections if applicable.
  • If there are any abnormalities or concerns with the fixture, report them to the appropriate personnel for inspection and repair.
  1. Starting the Machine:
  • Familiarize yourself with the specific operating instructions and safety precautions provided by the machine manufacturer.
  • Ensure that the machine is properly connected to a suitable power source.
  • Check that all cables, hoses, and connections are secure and in good condition.
  • Set the appropriate welding parameters such as voltage, wire feed speed, and shielding gas flow rate based on the material and joint being welded.
  • Perform any necessary calibration or setup procedures as required by the machine.
  • After confirming all settings and safety measures, power on the machine and ensure that it operates correctly.
  1. Poka Yoke:
  • Poka Yoke is a technique used to prevent mistakes or errors in a manufacturing process.
  • It involves designing fixtures, tools, or processes in such a way that errors are impossible or immediately detected.
  1. Tip Dressing and Changing:
  • Tip dressing involves the maintenance of the welding contact tip to ensure smooth wire feeding and consistent weld quality.
  • Dressing the tip typically involves removing any built-up spatter or debris using a wire brush or specialized tip cleaning tools.
  • Tip changing is required when the tip becomes excessively worn, damaged, or clogged.
  • Follow the machine manufacturer's guidelines for the specific procedure to change the tip, including proper removal and installation techniques.
  • Depending on the welding application, tip change frequency may vary. Factors such as wire type, welding parameters, and the quality of wire feeding can impact the frequency of tip changes. Regular inspection and monitoring of the tip condition will help determine when a change is needed.
  • It's important to note that the specific procedures and practices may vary depending on the type of welding machine, equipment, and industry requirements. Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines, follow proper safety protocols, and seek guidance from experienced professionals when necessary.
