Prerequisite: MFWT 111

84 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

MFWT 166 (3 credits)
Industrial Applications I: Fabrication Blueprint
Reading

Discusses the equipment used in the various fabrication
and welding trades, such as sheet and plate products plus
structures, tubing, pipe, and the various alloys of steel,
aluminum and stainless steel. Included is the application
of metals for industrial, commercial, and manufacturing
design.
Prerequisite: MFWT 111

MFWT 171 (2 credits)
Materials of the Trade and Applied Metallurgy

Covers the common materials, designations, and methods
of measurement used in the various fabrication and welding
trades. Sheet and plate products plus structures, tubing,
pipe, and the various alloys of steel, aluminum, and stainless
steel are discussed.

MFWT 207 (4 credits)
Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Provides students with a thorough technical understanding
of shielded metal arc welding fundamentals, welding
safety, welding machines, and electrode classifications and
selections. It also provides training to develop the manual
skill necessary to produce high quality shielded metal arc
welds in all positions on mild steel from 16 gage to 1" plate
with single and multiple passes. The welding process using
mild steel electrodes with low hydrogen and iron powder flux
coatings while using AC and DC power sources is covered.
Prerequisite: MFWT 156

MFWT 212 (4 credits)
Metals Fabrication III: Triangulation Pattern

Developmental and Advanced Machine Processes Designed
to introduce students to the triangulation method of pattern
development. Using this discipline of pattern development,
students design, lay out, and fabricate transitions,
Y-branches and other irregular fittings related to sheet metal,
piping, and miscellaneous plate fabrication according to job
specifications. Students also learn advanced machinery
set-up techniques relative to the fabrication of components
designed using this layout process. Instruction in the use of
precision measuring tools, iron workers, press brakes, and
saws are also major topics covered.
Prerequisites: MFWT 111 and MFWT 161
