MIG welders use metal inert gas (MIG), also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), to join metal together. A MIG welding machine uses direct current to melt the metal and join it to another piece of metal, while a gas like argon disperses contaminants from the welding zone. Trained MIG welders use this machine and hand-held MIG welding tools.
We will provide training, or welding skills can be learned at a vocational school, community college, former employer, or educational facility. Those employed must understand how to read blueprints, do basic math, and possess a basic understanding of electricity and metallurgy. E-Pak does not require certification.
Attention to Detail: Welders need to make clean lines and cuts when welding. Paying attention to the job at hand is necessary.
Dexterity: MIG welders work with their hands, and need to be steady during the welding process.
Strength: MIG welders often need to lift or hold heavy pieces of metal in place while welding.
Stamina: MIG welders can expect long hours on their feet, often in hot conditions.
Technical Skills: Welding equipment requires technical knowhow, as does reading blueprints and understanding how the final product should look.
Troubleshooting Skills: Welders should notice flaws in welds or structural imperfections in the metal.
Good Vision: Keeping a steady eye on the weld as it takes form requires good vision.
