EHOVE Industrial Tech students recently passed an American Welding Society (AWS) Certification Test (AWS). This test required them to weld a v-groove butt joint with a root opening and a backer plate. They welded these joints on either 1' thick plate (stick test) or 3/8" plate (MIG test). All passed the bend test to verify they were compliant with AWS D1.1 code.
