SMAW Electrode Characteristics
In this learning activity, you’ll explore the characteristics of common, carbon steel shielded metal arc welding electrodes, which fall under American Welding Society specification A5.1.
Types of Power Sources for Gas Metal Arc Welding
By Dave Hoffman
Learners view wire feed power sources ranging from 110-volt, single phase units to 460-volt, three-phase units. A description and photos of each are provided.
Welding Wire Spool Installation Instructions
The learner will identify the steps and proper techniques for installing a wire spool on a welding machine.
Types of Motion Instructions
The learner will identify the types of motion instructions used for programming a robot.
The Absolute Rotary Encoder
The learner will gain an understanding of robot motion control by comprehending the fundamentals of the encoder.
The Welder's Tool Bag
In this learning object, you’ll explore what tools should be a part of every welding tool bag.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
The learner will understand how to view an object for interpretation in the standard orthographic format and then accurately sketch three orthographic views using 3rd angle projection.
Orthographic Projection #1
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
