The welding process requires the use of all of the welder’s extremities, as he or she is typically standing on one foot while using a foot pedal remote with the other foot. The welder wields the welding torch in one hand, while the other hand holds the metal that will be used to produce a highly precise, clean weld.
The future of the welding industry is seen as a combination of artificial intelligence ( A I ) and human collaboration. Machines will not replace all manufacturer technicians and education is key to the future of human-machine coalescence. While students in middle school and beyond are more tech savvy than prior generations, it will take a combination of technical prowess and hands-on skills to be successful in the future of welding.
Tech is going into simpler machines, the lower [skilled] technical welders are beginning to be phased out because that simple welding can be performed entirely by machines. The rapid growth in robotics is not going to slow. More welding technicians need to learn not only how to hand weld, but the job will also include programming the welding machines, such as robotic arms.
Technology is not yet perfected, what its achieved till now are machines with a bit of memory that can remember programs, they remember amperage settings.
There are many changes in the industry ,there is one underlying factor that permeates every facet of welding and that is safety. It has to be kept in mind that there are two aspects of safety: the safety of the welding operations and the integrity of the welded product.This indicates that quality and integrity have become areas of focus in industry.
