The Metal Fabrication and Joining Technology Program

The metal fabrication and joinings technology program is designed to train and develop young men and women to become skilled fabricators, welders and sheet metal workers. Instruction is delivered by a NIMS certified teacher, Joseph A Fountain.

The curriculum has sheet metal work, Parallel, Radial, and Triangulation with a strong emphasis on Genera Sheet Metal Work for the HVAC type fittings. The entire sophomore year is dedicated primarily in this area. FCAW is also taught during that time. Cartesian coordinate Systems as they pertain to CAD systems as well is hot forging a 36 mild steel , riveting, and soldering. All math is included in our curriculum. We are proud to have the first NIMS certified Sheet Metal teacher in the state of Massachusetts.

Welding is the most common way to permanently join metal parts and therefore, is the core component of this program. In the process, heat applied to metal pieces melts and fuses them together. Because of its strength, welding is used in the building of ships, automobiles, and aircraft. It is also used to join beams in the construction of buildings, bridges and other structures. Students are introduced to the safe use of equipment in both forming and welding various metals. Strong emphasis is placed on the development and application of mathematical skills. Students receive instruction in a supervised laboratory atmosphere within the technical program and participate in supervised off-campus projects.

The ninth grade exploratory program introduces students to the safe use of equipment in both forming and welding various metals. Students will receive hands-on basic skill training in gas metal arc welding. Included in the program is the fabrication and welding of small projects in the shop environment.

Metal fabrication and joinings technology students will be provided with instruction and experiences that will enable them to apply and demonstrate the acquisition of competencies in the following areas:

♦ Applying principles of industry quality standard operations.
♦ Demonstrating and applying the design and manufacturing process.
♦ Problems solving, diagnosing, troubleshooting.
♦ Operating hand & power tools
♦ Maintaining equipment & machinery
♦ Using measurement devices.
♦ Explaining the fundamentals of metal fabrication & joining.
♦ Performing the oxy-acetylene, shielded metal arc, flux, core arc, and the gas tungsten arc welding.
♦ Performing the oxy-fuel gas & plasma cutting process.
♦ Performing the carbon arc gauging & spot welding processes.
♦ Laying out of materials according to standards.
♦ Joining metals.
♦ Performing mechanical cutting operations.
♦ Skills needed to take the Welding Certification test
♦ First Aid Certification

Career opportunities upon completion of this technical program include, but are not limited to:

♦ Apprenticeship programs
♦ Structural, mechanical or metallurgical engineering
♦ Art colleges for architectural metal designs or metal art construction
♦ Metal shop welder / fabricator
♦ Structured steel ironworker
