I operate a seam welder and I am responsible for producing a good quality welding on the seam of the pole. I first grind the weld joint and then set up the machine to begin welding. The weld joint is held together by hydraulic rollers that are controlled by pressure gauges that I adjust. After the pole has been seamed I measure the angle of each side of the pole to assure that the pole is not twisted other misaligned. I also have other capabilities within this company such as operating other machines and working on the safety comity to help keep the plant safety.
