Member Price: $420.00
MIG (metal inert gas) is the most common type of modern welding. It is a process by which a welding machine focuses electricity along a moving metal wire that is fed through a hose to a handheld torch. Student welders manipulate this torch as the electricity melts the wire and creates a weld. You will learn about the fundamentals of MIG welding, such as metallurgy, preparation, joints, technique, and safety. We will also cover plasma torch cutting. The class begins with a basic, technical welding exercise and transitions into a small creative project.
NOTE: This class is being held in its normal location indoors in the MIG Welding classroom. We have measured and indicated safe, physically-distanced work stations for the 6 students and faculty member(s).
