Fabrication and Welding - Intermediate

INC. TRAINING & JOB WITH SALARY / 12-24 MONTHS

LEARNING THE TRADE

Fabricators/Welders need to be able to interpret engineering drawings, convert them into metal shapes by developing patterns, marking out materials, cutting and bending steel plates and section material. This is done by using a range of powerful equipment such as guillotines, pipe benders, folders or computer controlled plasma cutting equipment. In many firms a fabricator will be expected to carry out both fabrication as well as welding work, but in many cases you will specialise in one of the two areas.
