Welding is one of the most important functions performed in both an
intermediate direct support (IDS) and intermediate general support
(IGS) maintenance company.
Experience gained during the second world
war revealed that many broken parts can be welded and put back into
service, thus often saving the expense of fabricating or purchasing a
new piece of equipment.
As a result of this experience, a service
section containing a metalworking shop with welding capabilities is now
established within these maintenance organizations.
