Introduction to Oxyfuel Welding
VS08XX
Produced by Coastal Skills Training

 

 
  Duration:
1.57 hours

 
  What Students Learn:
This series is designed for new welding workers who have little or no knowledge of the field. All of the terms used in the series are explained and defined in the workbook, so the learners are not required to have a welding vocabulary to understand the courses.
This series of videotape courses and their accompanying workbook form a learning resource which will enable learners to master the fundamentals of welding technology. Each course is introduced by identifying the specific competencies expected of the industrial trainee. Then it shows how to perform the various techniques from the point of view of the welder. This series is intended to be used as an enhancement to your industrial welding preparation program.

Welding Equipment, Accessories, and Shop Safety

Objectives:
This lesson will show you the parts and accessories of oxyfuel welding equipment. It will also show you some of the safety precautions you should observe in the use of this equipment.

Students will be able to:

  • Write down the safety precautions to follow when using oxyfuel equipment or working in the welding shop.
  • Identify the parts and accessories of oxyfuel equipment.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS0802
    Set Up and Shut Down of Oxyfuel Welding Equipment

    Objectives:
    This videotape will show you the proper procedures for setting up and shutting down the oxyfuel equipment.

    Students will be able to:

  • Write down the safety procedures to observe during set up and shut down procedures.
  • Write down the safety rules to follow in the welding areas.
  • Name the pieces of equipment used to make a proper set up for oxyfuel welding.
  • List the steps to go through to properly set up and shut down oxyfuel welding.

    The Three Types of Oxyfuel Flames

    Objectives:
    This lesson will demonstrate the three kinds of flame used in oxyfuel welding: the neutral flame, the carbonizing flame, and the oxidizing flame. By altering the mixture of oxygen and acetylene, you can obtain the type of flame suited to the operation you are performing.

    Students will be able to:

  • List the safety equipment and precautions necessary for oxyfuel welding.
  • Describe how to adjust the torch to produce a neutral flame, a carbonizing flame, or an oxidizing flame.
  • Write down how the various types of flames are normally used by the oxyfuel welder.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS0804
    Joint Design and Welding Terms

    Objectives:
    This learning module will demonstrate the common welds and joints used in the welding trade and will describe the capabilities of these joints. It will also define the basic terms used in welding. In addition to a basic knowledge of welds and joints, the welder must also be able to use the terminology of the trade.

    Students will be able to:

  • State the safety precautions to observe in the welding shop.
  • Identify the common types of welds used in welded joints.
  • Identify the common joint designs used in welding and their capabilities.
  • Define the basic terms used in welding.
  •

    Basic Blueprint Reading Lines, Views, and Dimensions

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to the basic lines, views, and dimensions which are used in blueprints. In order for welders to use blueprints effectively, they must be able to interpret them correctly. This involves properly reading the conventions used on the prints and understanding how the print represents the finished assembly.

    Students will be able to:

  • Explain the meaning of various blueprint lines.
  • Identify different blueprint views.
  • Describe a weld shape and finish from a blueprint.
  •

    General Welding Symbols, Part 1

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to the general welding symbols that are used on blueprints. When specific requirements exist for welds, symbols are used to identify the specifications. The general weld symbols are explained and their parts are described.

    Students will be able to:

  • Identify the parts of a base weld symbol.
  • Identify the types of welds and their symbols.
  • Describe a weld shape and finish from a blueprint.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS0807
    General Welding Symbols, Part 2

    Objectives:
    This presentation will extend your knowledge about welding symbols and specifications that appear on blueprints. When specific requirements exist for welds, symbols are used to identify the specifications. The meaning of specifications is determined by its location with respect to the general weld symbol. This presentation explains many of these specifications.

    Students will be able to:

  • Identify the components of weld symbols.
  • Match a blueprint with welding symbols to the workpiece it represents.
  •
