Hi This is a place holder while I put together some material on this matter, in the interim please come along to the tin bashers group for an induction and training as required

It will operate in much the same way as the robotic arm, laser cutter and or lathe due to the capital cost of the equipment and safety implications

The journey through this equipment will start with MMA or Stick for the basic skills and the move on to MIG and perhaps TIG depending on skills shown on Stick and Tig

The care and training of this equipment is and will be carried out by the metal working group

Training Guide

Aim : To be able to use the machine safely and produce a simple piece of work, e.g. a but weld
