National Welding Month recognized by engineers

22 April 2021

Welding is the process of using high heat to fuse metal together. At Arnold Air Force Base, located in Tennessee, and the headquarters for Arnold Engineering Development Complex, there are boilermakers, pipefitters, ironworkers, sheet metal workers and machinists in the model and machine shop who specialize in the skill of welding. 

In recognition of the folks who possess this ability, the American Welding Society, or AWS, celebrates National Welding Month each April to bring awareness to the industry and its available career paths. According to the AWS website, welding careers play an integral role in keeping people safe and advancing the quality of life across the globe.
