weld verb. join together (metal pieces or parts) by heating the surfaces to the point of melting using a blowtorch, electric arc, or other means, and uniting them by pressing, hammering, etc.

the workshops

Detroit Training Center hosts two-hour crash-courses in MIG and Arc welding that are excellent ways for beginners to learn with no experience necessary. DTC designed these workshops to provide students with the knowledge and confidence to start working with this fun metal-joining process. All equipment is well-maintained, state-of-the-art, and easy to operate. For each workshop, one hour is mandatory welder safety instruction. All safety equipment and materials are provided for all participants. Afterwards, the staff will explain the equipment, setting up the controls and system, and then the welding process. The student will then have an hour to apply their knowledge and weld their metals--masterpieces will be taken home! Waiver must be signed in order to participate.


topics

Intro to MIG -

Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welding is a semi-automatic or automatic process that uses a continuous wire feed as an electrode and an inert or semi-inert gas mixture to protect the weld from contamination. This is typically done for applying metal in a production environment and many other larger projects because it's a fast process.

intro to arc -

Shielded Metal Arc Welding is a process that uses a flux-coated electrode to form the weld. As electricity passes through the electrode, the flux forms a gas, which shields the electric arc in the space between the electrode and the metal being welded, preventing contamination from atmospheric gasses in the weld. It can be used to make repairs on heavier industrial equipment.

mig 2 - 

Students are encouraged to take the Intro to MIG class prior to taking MIG 2. For those that do not take the intro class, they must arrive 30 minutes early for a safety instruction and pay an additional $25. This is a beginner two-hour course that will allow students to expand their knowledge from the intro workshop.
