Welding and Fabrication - Facilities and Equipment
Welding and Fabrication - Facilities and Equipment
June 03, 2013

Metal fabrication can be described as the design and assembly of a wide variety of different products. Based on the types of products being produced, the materials needed may come from brass, aluminum, steel or copper. Some industries use a variety of alloys to make the items. The alloy materials are normally lightweight and they can be used for a wide array of different products, for example tire rims. There are also companies that use the welding and fabrication Toronto processes to make items for the construction industry, food service industry and the electronics industry.

Before any individual can work with welding and fabrication Toronto equipment, it is important for them to receive safety training. Since this work can be hazardous for the individual and the workers around them, there are specific safety practices that must be in place before activity in the shop begins.

The training that these employees receive can be applied in multiple operations including Metalworking Operations. Some of the most common equipment includes arc welding tools, metal inert gas welding, laser welding and robot welding. While a lot of the activities are performed on site, some manufacturers can send various parts of the their jobs to subcontractors. Based on the type of process needed, the subcontractors can complete certain procedures on site in a safe environment and then ship the finished parts back to manufacturer or to the distributor that forwards the finished products. Using a subcontractor makes the overall price of these products less costly for the original manufacturer.

In some situations, the manufacturer may use a subcontractor to make the initial drawings. Once the drawings are completed by the subcontractor, the engineers from the manufacturing company must review and approve the designs before they are used for the actual manufacturing process.

You need to be licensed to do welding and fabrication in Toronto, it is not just onsite training.

There's a welding and fabrication technician diploma that you can get in college. A professional metal shop will typically provide additional training to get you up to their standards, but they would normally expect you to have a college background

Is there a welding and fabrication certificate that you get from college or its all onsite training?
