GMAW/Mig     Gas Metal Arc Welding

GMAW is a semi-automatic process that creates an arc by using a continuously fed solid electrode protected by a shielding gas. The Gas Metal Arc Welding program at the NESM trains students to become proficient in one of the most prevalent arc welding process used in manufacturing today. Classroom topics cover GMAW techniques, electrode classification, weld metal transfers, shielding gases, troubleshooting, and welding safety. Students are taught the correct method to weld fillet and square butt joints on carbon steel during hands on sessions.
