Course overview

This course provides an understanding of advanced welding processes,  including the physical principles, operating characteristics and practical applications of each process.  There is a strong emphasis on laser welding and processing as well as recent developments in arc processes and resistance welding.

Delegates attend a combination of lectures and practical laboratory classes. The latter involves experimental work using a state-of-the-art fibrelaser. Topics covered include:

  • laser properties and fundamentals
  • laser optics and optical materials
  • laser material interaction
  • laser welding including hybrid processes
  • laser cutting and drilling
  • laser surface treatment
  • laser material processing systems
  • advanced digital arc welding
  • flux cored arc welding
  • advanced modelling and monitoring of resistance welding
  • friction stir welding
  • additive manufacture
  • residual stress, distortion and their management.

On completion of this course the delegate will:

  • understand the recent developments in welding technology and where these new processes can be used.
  • understand the physical principles behind the operation of these processes
  • understand the physical and engineering principles behind each application and the methods for maximising process efficiency
  • understand how to select the most appropriate welding system for a particular application and analyse the economic benefits.
