Welders pick the materials to join or cut and arrange them in an appropriate configuration before following a specific design or blueprint to build the desired product. Sometimes you will have to perform specific melting methods on materials like lead bars to complete a project. Welders are also in charge of making structural repairs, ensuring the integrity of the welding equipment is intact, and smoothing and polishing the metal surfaces once welded together.
