What does a Welder do?

As a welder, you join different materials (mainly metals, but also plastics such as polymers) that are used in different industrial fields (from scaffolding to aircraft technology). Workpieces and components are joined together using heat and/or pressure so that they form a single unit. Depending on the work order, you select the necessary welding equipment and tools and carry out the welding work. After welding, you treat the weld seams and check them for uniformity, transitions, notches and cracks.

What is important?

  • Dexterity and hand-eye coordination (e.g. when accurately fixing the welding points).
  • Care (e.g. when cleaning and fixing the components).
  • Sense of responsibility (e.g. when checking the weld seams for leaks).
  • Cautiousness (not endangering the environment and yourself).
  • Spatial imagination (e.g. when welding metal constructions according to technical drawings).
