This two-day course is structured to teach the fundamental principles of welding to engineers and managers that have responsibility for welding processes
but may have a minimal background in welding.
|Fusion Welding Processes – Common fusion welding processes will be introduced including: shielded metal arc welding, gas
metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, and flux core arc welding. Resistance Welding Processes- The resistance
welding process for the joining of thin materials will be introduced.
|Topics to be Covered:|
|Who should attend?|
|All who are responsible for welding processes: Welding Engineers, Quality Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Engineering
Managers, Quality Managers and Plant Managers.
|Dr. Steve Daniewicz, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Alabama. He earned his
B.S. and M.S. degrees in Welding Engineering. He has taught courses at MSU in kinematics, advanced mechanics of materials, machine design,
casting and welding, system dynamics, fatigue and fracture mechanics, and elasticity theory. Dr. Daniewicz has significant experience in
fracture mechanics and fatigue. He has finite element modeling expertise and he has preformed finite element modeling of welding and heat-treating
processes for prediction of residual stress and distortion. Jack Raymond, Senior Engineer, Nissan North America,
Canton, MS, is responsible for all welding used in Nissan automotive manufacturing (body in white). Jack has been in welding manufacturing
industry since 1979 with responsibilities ranging from Plant Welding Engineer to Engineering Manager (body in white). His work experience
covers many exotic welding processes such as Magnetic Arc Welding, Solid State Welding, High Capacitor Discharge Welding, Cold Metal Transfer
Welding, Class 4 High Power Lasers YAG/Co2, Drawn Arc Welding, Projection Welding and Resistance Welding. He has also had an impact on
several industry standards, including ANSI, SAE, ASME, MIL, ISO, GMA, AWS Code D1.1 (structural steel), and AWS D1.3 (sheet metal). Other
credits include Certified Laser Safety Officer, member of the American Welding Society, and a member of the Edison Welding Institute.
