Welding and Joining Technology


Information about this exciting field:

Welding is the process of joining (heating and melting) metal parts using high-intensity heat, creating a permanent, strong bond.  It’s used to join beams in the construction of buildings; to construct and repair parts of cars, airplanes, and ships; and to fabricate bridges, pipelines, and many other types of structures. Some welders use their tools to cut metal into pieces, as required by blueprints or design, to create beautiful ornamental structures.  Precision and safety are always key considerations in this highly diversified field.
