Brazing using TIG and MIG

There are many different skills and techniques within the scope of hot working of metals in the field of joining metals. One of the skills and techniques is Brazing, using Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) as the heat source to melt the Brazing materials to form the joint. The technique of brazing uses a lower temperature to produce a non-fusing weld to joins the two pieces of metal rather than the higher temperatures required for fused welded joints. This one day course seeks to give delegates the necessary training to ensure that they can operate safely and effectively in this particular technique.

  • Course content
  • This one day course is practical based and has been designed to teach delegates the principles, techniques and practices to enable them to safely and effectively operate MIG and TIG equipment and the selection and use of the appropriate materials to  Braze effectively.

    During this course the delegates will carry out the following:

    • Gas cylinder recognition and identification

    • Maintenance inspection procedure for pressure regulators

    • Brazing materials, compounds and procedures

    • Set up of equipment and brazing practice

    • Welding theory

    • Equipment assembly

    • Safety set-up

    • Correct amp/volt settings

    • Selection of welding tungstens and their application

    • Welding terminology

    • Welding fault rectification

    • Test pieces in tee fillets and butt welds

  • Pre-requisites
  • This one day course is ideal for delegates who have little or no previous experience of the process, or delegates who need a refresher in the use of the equipment.  It would also be beneficial to anyone who requires a working knowledge of the Health and Safety considerations when carrying out MIG and TIG operations.

  • Assessment
  • Whilst there is no formal assessment on this course, delegates will need to demonstrate a basic working knowledge and understanding the Brazing process and the safe use of MIG and TIG equipment.  They will also need to demonstrate that they can produce satisfactory non-fusing welds during the practical elements of the course.  Observational feedback on delegates will be given by the instructor and, on successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
