I believe that solid hands-on manufacturing and fabricating experience will make me a better manufacturing engineer. These practical skills work in tandem with theoretical knowledge, and provide unique perspectives during a decision making process.
I have always been fascinated by welding, so through my school’s chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers, as well as on my own time, I have been learning to TIG Weld. I purchased an Everlast 161STH and I have been very happy with it so far.
TIG is certainly a complicated process, and I will have more projects to showcase once I get a little bit better.
