Students placed and earned prizes.

Lanier Welding students attended the Austin Community College welding contest last Friday and brought home some swag for their hard work. Students hand cut 3/8" plate and centered a piece of Schedule 40 4" pipe on it.  They then had to weld in the 3F position (vertical) using Shielded Metal Arc Welding 1/2 of the pipe with 6010 and 7018 welding rods in an upward progression.  The other 1/2 of the pipe was welded in an upward progression using Gas Metal Arc Welding.  The ACC welding contest is the toughest skill based welding contest in the State.
