Combining the Craft and Technology of Welding
Welding is more than just a job; it is an artistic skill. Even with the most sophisticated technology, welders must have a level of craftsmanship that allows them to develop high-quality parts and components. Unfortunately, the industry has taught many consumers and even prospective welders that the job has nothing to do with craft, and that it is all about the technology. This gives way to the thought that anyone can be taught to use a micrometer or calculate bend deductions, but in reality, it takes a desire to learn and desire to create something with what you learn.
Assessing the Craft of Welding
For companies like Freehold Welding Inc. that offer fabricated, custom parts, it is all about the craft. We know the value of employing some of the most talented welders in the state because:
- The right welder knows which tools will get the job done right. After all, what is the point of using a deburring machine when a hand file does just as well? On the other end of the spectrum, a talented welder will know when to use a machine for maximum precision and when to set aside technology for art.
- Learning how to properly manipulate metals goes well beyond the right tools. It requires experience, knowledge and a natural artistic ability.
- Only those that look at welding as an art can truly create ornamental products.
At Freehold Welding Inc., our welders are AWS Certified and all true craftsmen. We pride ourselves on being able to provide our clients with not only the specifications of the job, but the level of creativity that makes their job truly extraordinary.
