Welders join pieces of metal together by using intense heat or by thermal methods. They are responsible for preparing the metal and looking after the tools that weld the metal together. Welders work in manufacturing or construction concerned with metal fabrication, in heavy engineering and related industries such as shipbuilding/repair and engineering construction. The welder may have to set up the pieces to be welded on a bench, workshop floor or construction site.
