Striving for the best precision metal fabrication techniques the Meridian Technology center have some excellent certification programs to help start or progress a career in metal fabrication. Their Beginning Metal Fabricator course is an excellent introduction to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW). It also includes modules of reading and understanding engineering blueprints and the layout an sequencing involved in the fabrication process.
Bend it, but don’t break it. That could be the unofficial motto of the Precision Metal Fabrication program at Tech. This program specializes in advanced welding processes that are used to join, cut, bend, drill, punch and manipulate a variety of metal types. Using elements of traditional welding and fabrication techniques, students design and lay out patterns, interpret blueprints and meticulously follow engineering specifications to complete projects.
