Welding & Manufacturing

Welding and Its Role in Society

 Welding is playing an important role in the expansion and production of our industrial society. Over 50% of our GNP is directly or indirectly a result of welding technology. Without welding, industry and construction would never be able to meet consumer demands for new and better products. New products require new techniques. Traditional welding methods and training cannot meet this increased demand, and because of this, new welding processes have been developed. Presently, there are more than fifty welding processes being used in the industry. With each new process that is developed, there is a corresponding need for additional well-trained and well-qualified workers.
