GMAW – Aluminum Plate – Module ID 29401-16


Module One (29401-16) presents gas metal arc welding (GMAW)—one of the more common welding processes now used. As with most welding systems, GMAW equipment is available in many different sizes and varieties. However, the basic operating principles of GMAW apply to all makes and models of equipment. This module describes how GMAW equipment is used to weld aluminum plate and examines different techniques used to produce fillet and V-groove plate welds in aluminum base metals.
