This unit forms part of the Course in MCAST Award in Weldability of Metals and the Management of Engineering Welding. Once a learner complete all the units in this course satisfactorily; that is has obtained a pass mark in the assessment and respected the 80% attendance s/he will achieve an award pegged at MQF Level 5, 20 ECVET Credits
The correct and the appropriate procedures to weld stainless Steels developed from practical applications and from the recommended manufacturers and supplier data, form an integral part of this unit. The welding classification and the main general classes of stainless steels according to composition are evaluated and the ideal technological set-up to produce quality welds to industrial standard is discussed.
This is a 32 hrs of guided learning course. Students need to invest further hours in the course, which will include private study and home assignments.
Lessons are held as indicated on the prospectus and website.
Learning Outcome 1: Identify properties of stainless steels from the weldability stand point
Learning Outcome 2: Evaluate the composition, the metallurgical characteristics and the welability of Martenistic Stainless Steels, Ferritic Stainless Steels and Austenitic Stainless Steels
The following are the suggested pre-requisites and/or entry requirements needed:
