Sheet Metal Welding Project by a Lincoln Tech Denver Student

May 7, 2019
A welding project at Lincoln Tech's Denver welding school trains welders to join complex shapes.

This sheet metal welding project is a scaled-down interpretation of a hot-rod assembly.  The metal panels are held together by devices called Cleco Temporary Rivets, also known as Cleco Fasteners or even panel holders. These clamping devices hold the panels in place by strategically-placed pre-drilled holes until the welds are finished. The Cleco devices are then removed, and can be reused for future projects.
