Understanding Welding Filler Metals

Understanding Welding Filler Materials.

This course will piggy back on the discussions of welding processes in the 'Arc Welding Process Overview' Course. There we discussed five of the more commonly used welding processes, SMAW, FCAW, SAW, GMAW and GTAW. It is appropriate that discussions of weld filler metals be restricted to those filler metals used with the five referenced processes. We will also limit our conversations to: 1) Mild and alloy steels. 2) Austenitic and Duplex Stainless Steels and 3) Nickel alloys.

This online course is designed to give mechanical, civil, chemical and electrical engineers a solid introduction into welding electrodes and filler metals. The purpose of this course is to give deeper insight into electrodes and filler metals for welding. An understanding of this area will make it easier to participate in welding related activities and to communicate with welding craft and supervision in regards to welding related technical issues and topics.
