Tooling Welders perform certified/qualified welding* and thermal cutting to fabricate, repair, rework, and modify jigs, fixtures, dies, tools, handling equipment, and other similar products. This includes requirements for multiple types of welding processes for all-position welding on structural tubing, plate, and shapes.
Job duties include: Performing FCAW, GMAW, GTAW, and SAW per the applicable Boeing Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS). Make adjustments during the process of the weld to compensate for variations in thickness, mismatch, gap, equipment anomalies, assembly fit-up, etc. Perform brazing, oxy-fuel cutting, plasma arc cutting, carbon arc gouging, flame straightening, and flame bending.
When a WPS is not required, select electrodes, gas cups, filler metal, weld current, arc voltage travel speed, gas flow, wire size and feed rate per the weld schedule or other furnished information. Work in conformance with drawings, specifications, written or verbal instructions, trade practices, and applicable codes. In preparation for or after welding, operate saws, disk grinders, drill presses, and other associated shop equipment to accomplish assigned work. Plan sequence of welding and material fit-up operations to allow maximum accessibility to the area welded last on a complete assembly. Move, lift and/or turn materials or weld structures as required, utilizing shop lifting equipment such as overhead cranes, electric stackers, etc.. Maintain cleanliness of welding equipment and general weld area. Ensure tools and parts meet engineering requirements, specifications and tolerances for dimension, shape, contour, location and coordination.
Report discrepancies in design or fabrication and initiate corrections as required. Coordinate, communicate and work with customers, suppliers and associates regarding job tasks including: shift-to-shift written/verbal tie-ins, documenting and maintaining adequate records. Request repairs when and as required to maintain welding equipment in optimum operating condition.. Assist in the identification and documentation of best practices, process standardization and improvement activities associated with structural welding.
Upon employment, employees must satisfactorily complete and maintain required all-position pipe performance qualification tests, as required by the applicable local, state, & federal regulations, industry codes, and Boeing policies.
The following required qualification tests must be performed while adhering to provided Weld Process Specification essential variables during testing; WABO 27-13 & AWS D1.1: GTAW/DC (small pipe) Weld one 2" diameter schedule 80 mild steel pipe in the 6G position using the GTAW/DC process. WABO 27-13 & AWS D1.1: GTAW/DC & FCAW (large pipe TK&Y connection) Weld one 6" diameter schedule 120 mild steel pipe in the 6G position using the GTAW/DC process on the root and second pass, fill and cover using the FCAW process AWS D1.2: GTAW/DC & GTAW/AC (small pipe) Weld one 2" diameter schedule 80 aluminum pipe in the 6G position using the GTAW/DC process on the root pass, use the GTAW/AC process to fill and cover. AWS D1.2: GTAW/DC, GTAW/AC & GMAW (large pipe) Weld one 6" diameter schedule 120 6061 aluminum pipe in the 6G position using the GTAW/DC process to weld the root and second pass, weld one fill layer with the GTAW/AC process, fill and cover using the GMAW process. Visual Acuity:
The minimum standards for annual visual examination, with or without corrective lenses are a minimum near visual acuity at 14 inches shall be J-2, 20/25 or better.
