Welding and Joining Laboratory

Research in the Welding and Joining Laboratory at The University of Alabama focuses on the joining of advanced materials for aerospace and automotive applications. The Welding and Joining Lab is equipped with a Lincoln Square Wave TIG 355 Welder, a Thompson A-1 Spot Welder and a Stanat Model TA215 2-Roller Mill. The TIG 355 is used for TIG (GTAW) and stick (SMAW) welding processes within the recommended output capability of 2 to 400 amps on both AC and DC polarity.
