The Job


What is a Welder?

Welders use welding, flame-cutting, hand-soldering or brazing equipment to join metal components or to fill holes, indentations and seams in metal products.

Why companies need Welders

The purpose of a Welder is to work on bridges, manufacturing sites, planes and anywhere metal pieces need to be joined together – even on the top of skyscrapers. Welders also disassemble large objects like ships, cars, aircraft and buildings. Another aspect of being a welder is to assess the quality of welds and identify flaws.
