Scope of work:

Welder/Fabricators are the lifeblood of any metalworking shop that requires a specialized effort to produce a product that offers a solution to common automotive, industrial, commercial, or residential problems. Familiarity with welding principles on various metals and alloys are crucial. Albeit critical, understanding how to lay a proper weld bead from one metal to the next is only about 35-40% of the job of being an actual Fabricator. Cutting, grinding, and manipulating the work piece is a large part of what it means to actually fabricate something. Along with these core tasks, problem-solving, troubleshooting, and finding solutions can greatly increase how effective you are in a shop environment as a Welder/Fabricator. Holding yourself accountable for coming up with solutions to the problems you face daily promotes a culture of improvement across the entire shop. Demonstrating an understanding that all decisions should take into account these three priorities in this order: SAFETY, QUALITY, and PRODUCTIVITY. You will utilize many tools to aide the effort of building world class products, such as jigs, fixtures, gauges, spacers, calipers, and blueprints. A blueprint along with a fixture and sample piece should be present any applicable time you’re building product to ensure that the highest possible level of quality is being achieved.
