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. The process of welding uses either electricity or various gasses to create high temperatures that bond metals.
Welders may also be required to flame cut or cold cut metal based on blueprints and/or isometric drawings to construct new pipe or structural steel systems for process systems and unit infrastructure components. Flame cutting may also be required for equipment demo prior to new construction of new equipment.
The skill level varies between different types of welding depending on the metallurgy and process required to complete a reliable weld.
