"Only by hearing the welding sound can I recognize which part is not well-welded," Li said.
Li entered the company in 1987 after graduating and was sent to the welding workshop. Welders had to wear heavy clothes and carry a welding gun which shoots out a 2,300 degree Celsius flame. Every time he walked out of the workshop, Li was drenched in sweat.
Li practiced hard and constantly looked for ways to improve his welding skills, and started to win skill competitions after his second year at the company.
