K-zell Metals operates three Panasonic Robotic Welding Cells, GMAW welding Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminum.

As a Robotic Welder Operator, you will be part of skilled team of craftsmen working with state of the art machinery.  Your input will help determine how we approach each project, and develop the plan for turning customer designs into quality finished products. You will be tasked to read and interpret fabrication drawings as you install and weld the various parts of the project. You will be challenged to produce parts pushing the limits of what can be welded from parts requiring careful sequencing of welds to welding thin materials.  You will use your skills to produce exacting and cosmetically appealing products. We encourage thinking outside the box to make us more competitive.
