Welders at a Glance

Welders (or fabricators/fitters) join metal objects by applying heat. Arc welding is most common, but there are many welding technologies. Work can be done indoors or outdoors to build bridges, power facilities, stadiums, ships, cars, and large buildings. Technical school provides valuable education regarding welding techniques and various metal properties.
