Orbital Welding Training

Intensive, Hands-On Training for Maximum Results


Orbital Welding Training 

Orbital welding is an automated process in which an electrode is rotated in an orbit around a part joint on a rotor using gears and motors.


Swagelok® M200 welding system, it’s easy to make precise, consistent, quality welds. While automatic orbital welding can help you overcome issues related to widespread welder shortages, proper orbital welding training is essential to equip your emerging welders for success with our five-day orbital welding training course.


Swagelok Orbital Welding Training 

For many decades, Swagelok has offered premium-quality welding tools. Today, our welding training emphasizes the theories and skills associated with Gas Tungsten Arc-based orbital Welding (GTAW) with both classroom and hands-on training in a four days course.


Because of the complexity of skills required to consistently achieve good orbital welds, new and experienced welders must be trained using cutting-edge techniques from qualified instructors. The techniques taught in this course can be applied to any automatic gas tungsten arc welding system.



Course Objective:

To gain an understanding of the Swagelok Welding System including weld schedules,

set up and operations to gain high quality orbital weld
