Students in IME-100 course enjoy using the equipment for Shielded Metal Arc welding process and the Oxy-fuel Welding process. Some students develop an interest in welding processes and join the KU Welding Club which works weekly during most terms with our technician on advanced welding techniques. The equipment can be used by students on class projects. Welded sculpture is a favorite art form of students in this laboratory. The Automatic welding equipment is utilized the IME technicians to fabricate repair parts and new apparatus for laboratory use.
