Welding Technology

Welding Technology means more than just applying heat to metal. It's a skill that requires knowledge of science, mechanics and technology. A professional Welder's job primarily is to join two pieces of metal by heating them until they melt and fuse together. They may work with materials like aluminum, titanium and steel. Skilled Welders generally plan work from drawings or specifications and use their knowledge of fluxes and base metals to analyze the parts to be joined. These workers then select and set up welding equipment, execute the planned welds, and examine welds to ensure they meet standards or specifications.

Welders, Solder Technicians and Brazing Workers are employed in manufacturing industries such as automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, and commercial construction.
