The content of this excellent training video was developed by the specialists of the NTS Inc., standing for the Nautical training Systems, one of the world leaders in the field. The video is reflecting many critically important aspects and shall definitely be viewed by all persons involved in the construction of the ship hulls and especially those dealing with the welding operations as they will find this one very useful.
The training starts with the information about the fundamentals of the SMAW, i.e. shielded metal arc welding covering the theoretical information and practical operations. Then, the next process addressed is the TIG welding - this also very popular welding process known as tungsten welding used to join aluminum - it is explained in detail within this video by Ron Covell.
The rest of the video is dealing with the gas welding and cutting operations as well as flame brazing and plasma cutting. We highly recommend this video to the future shipbuilders taking into account the concise and clear explanations it provides - they will be understandable even to the people not having too much of practical experience. However, it will be definitely found useful by the experienced welders who may wish to refresh their theoretical knowledge of the fundamentals.
