MIG Welding Training Materials

A common problem for North American weld manufactures is the shortage of skilled trades. Manual welders are frequently in short supply. The aggressive growth in arc welding robots is also aggravating the MIG weld employment issues. Many manufactures of welded parts are at or will soon be at a manpower crossroad. The training paths that these companies select can have an important influence on their future prosperity and growth.

Many manufacturing managers learn the hard way that when it comes to MIG welding that, robots do not have the same ability as the welders. Yes a MIG robot can readily produce superior weld quality than any manual welder, however this only occurs when the robot programmer has the required the necessary MIG weld process control data and of course has of robot programming expertise.

When reviewing the welding workforce requirements, a company that produces welded parts has several options.

[a] Should the company keep its workforce at the same size and provide more welding automation?

[b] Should the company rely on the local community trade school to provide the skills it’s welders require?

[c] Should the company move or open a new facility in another state or country, such as China, Mexico or Brazil?

Perhaps your company could use a logical and cost effective approach to enhancing weld productivity and minimizing weld rework. The company could use one of Ed's unique, customized weld best practices and process control training courses or resources. The resources listed below will dramaticaly increase your robot / manual weld efficiency from your existing workforce or weld automation.
