What Exactly Does a Welder Do?

welderA welder crafts pieces of material, usually different types of metals together. Before, welding was performed solely with metal; however, thanks to modern technology, today’s welders are also able to work with plastic. The phrase welder is used to describe the tools and equipment which are used for this process too, some use the word weldor, to speak about someone who performs the job.

Welding is in fact a very ancient profession, and people have been doing it for several decades, metalworking is an extremely important part of everyday life, even archaeologists use the working of numerous metals in order to better describe the differing eras of our history, such as the Iron and Bronze Ages. Standard welding is done by using heat to meld the metals together; modern welding now has various other methods for joining material, ranging from arc to electricity and ultrasound; these can also be used to join some plastics.

Most welders work in the heavy industry, due to the fact welding is an important part of construction of things such as trains, cars, and ships. Welders also work in other industries or are self-employed contractors that repair or create numerous metal items. The construction industry employs plenty of welders, as most structures use industrial metal framework in order to support them, and this framework needs to be assembled and subsequently secured by welders.

There are 2 ways to become a welder. Some go to trade schools, which will offer anywhere from a few weeks to many years of training, all depending on how specialized they are looking to be. Others will seek apprenticeships, obtaining on-the-job training from other more experienced welders. One benefit of going to a trade school is welders will be taught about all the cutting-edge techniques, some of which are not yet perfected in the field; although welders that apprentice are paid, this can be an important consideration for some.
