Welding is an art, a practice, a profession, a specialty in engineering and science.
It is an enabling technology used in a diverse variety of industries and technologies, from medical instruments, electronics and photonics micro-joining to larger-scale applications such as mining machinery, pressure vessels, vehicles, rail transport, water pipelines, and parts.
The technology of steel bonding is important to Australia’s economic development.

The welding career in Australia is represented by WeldingServices. Private welding professionals and businesses of all sizes are made up of our members. Members of WeldingServices are engaged in almost every facet of the Australian industry and contribute significantly to the economy of the country.
Our key priority is to ensure that, both now and in the future, the Australian welding industry stays competitive locally and internationally.

Worth PROPOSITION SUCCESS
WeldingServices puts together representatives of people and businesses into a group to deliver:
A forum for the exchanging of thoughts and resource sharing
A voice to support the welding community’s priorities and shape the welding services sector
Professional problem solving expert and a partnership between business and research organizations
A literacy and career growth process and the chance to benchmark against the best practice in the world
The recent move of sending steel infrastructure projects overseas is perceived by WeldingServices to be a major danger to the future of welding in Australia. The inflow of young apprentices, engineers and scientists into the trade will dry up without a base load of welding-reliant ventures and manufacturing enterprises will cease to exist. In turn, our strategically important electricity, water, mining, oil & gas, road, rail and defense infrastructure industries would have to focus on overseas expertise.
WeldingServices is committed to ensuring that all facets of Australia’s welding profession are globally competitive and that, relative to overseas competition, our industries are handled equally.
