The MIG stands for the "Metal Inert Gas" and this type of welding is widely used in the shipbuilding industry. The present introductory video film is presented by Skills Education Australia PTY, it is very informative and practically useful.

The film will help the workers, engineers and students in getting to know the technical fundamentals of this type of welding. The video shows the most common practices and also focuses on safety aspects.

The content shall be greatly appreciated by the professional and trainee welders, students of the shipbuilding and any construction related specialties, specialists dealing with the control of the welding quality and general construction, quality assurance inspectors, designers and other persons in the industry.

It is the purpose of this video to simplify many of the complex technically problems which commonly occur in MIG welding community of today (suggest call the Gas Metal Arc Welding "MIG" in verbal discussion).

Nowadays, welders have got so many variables that have to be adjusted and balanced, for example is he using the proper size welding wire and the right type of wire, should he be possibly using flux core or should that be a MIG wire; and then, what about the voltage and the amperage and the speed - they all have to be balanced very carefully to get a proper weld.

We recommend this film to all welders since it clearly explains the main principles of MIG welding in a way making the content understandable even to the newcomers to the world of welding, having little to no professional experience in establishing the weld seams. A really great supplementary visual material for people willing to get further training in addition to the theoretical knowledge obtained from the books and manuals.

This short video belongs to the world famous and very popular "Coastal Skills Training" series. The intention of the authors was to demonstrate how the proper weld joints shall be established using the MIG, standing for the Metal Inert Gas welding technique in both flat and horizontal positions.

Subject welding process is very widely used that is why we consider it very important for all persons engaged in ship construction and ship repair activities to have a thorough understanding of it. The proper knowledge of the process of welding will allow the welder to make a good weld seam and to it in a safe manner, which is critically important.

Realizing all technical aspects of particular welding technique will eventually result in a weld with the desired characteristics which, in turn, will contribute to the overall construction quality of the vessel and safety of people on board.

This film is intended to give you much better idea of the reasons for carrying out a Risk Assessment. While 'Hot Work' is specifically discussed, it should be remembered that the lessons you will definitely learn from this film apply to any Risk Assessment, does not matter if it is conducted for Hot Work, Confined/Enclosed Space Entry, Working Aloft or any other potentially hazardous task.

Where anything in this training film differs from your company guidelines, or where specific instructions are issued by your employer, these should always take priority over the content of this film! It is considered essential that you read and understand the relevant section of the SMS, standing for the Safety Management System for your vessel that describes procedures for carrying out any Hot Work.

Every welding project is completed one weld bead at a time. From fabrication and repair shops, arc welding is one of the most common and versatile methods of joining the metal. The present video film has been specifically developed for the people who already have some very basic knowledge of the welding processes but lack of the required practical experience.

This video will explain the basic welding techniques, tell them about the proper preparation for the welding and also the welding sequence to be followed in order to establish a high-quality weld seam. Note that the content of the film will be very useful and informative not only to the students and future welders or hull constructors, but also for the people who are already working with welding and wish to improve their welding skills or to refresh them. Take some fifty minutes watching the film and you will know nearly everything about arc welding process.
