• Welding


    Welders use hand-welding or flame-cutting equipment to weld or join metal components or to fill holes, indentations, or seams of fabricated metal products. Their work includes welding components in flat, vertical, or overhead positions. They lay out, position, align, and secure parts and assemblies prior to assembly, using straightedges, combination squares, calipers, and rulers. Welders examine work pieces for defects and measure work pieces with straightedges or templates to ensure conformance with specifications. They recognize, set up, and operate hand and power tools common to the welding trade, such as shielded metal arc and gas metal arc welding equipment.
