Shipbuilding & Repair


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 interesting documentary video film is intended to demonstrate one of the most technologically advanced cruise vessels ever built and, definitely, one of the best and most beautiful creatures of today's world. Subject vessel was delivered at Meyer-Werft cruise ship construction yard in Papenburg city of Germany for the RCI, standing for the Royal Caribbean International Co.

They say there is only one word available to sum up "Quantum of the Seas" and that word is "wow!". She is the lead vessel of the whole "Quantum" class of cruise vessels. Take some time to watch this interesting and very popular film and get to know a wealth of interesting facts on this fairy-tale of the seas.

It will be particularly interesting for the shipbuilders, both practicing specialists and students of shipbuilding-related disciplines. It is definitely worth having a look at one of the most fascinating engineering marvels of today - take your time watching this one and you will be taken away with the content.

The Netherlands has been world famous for its brilliant shipbuilding tradition for centuries. In the past, these boats were used to trade goods and discover exotic lands. Today, the industry is all about leisure, demanding a different approach from the shipyards; revolutionary new technology and construction methods herald a new era for superyachts builders allowing them to take these magnificent vessels to higher levels.

These is superyachts. This video produced and presented by the Discovery Channel will be of great interest to the people interested in yachts and superyachts - everyone will find something interesting and relevant to him or her, from the shipbuilding industry professionals to students and from mariners to the people dreaming of becoming the owner of the superyacht, or just a yacht, to start with...

And here is one more interesting documentary film of Extreme Engineering series officially presented by the famous Discovery Channel. This episode shows us the operations together with the weapon systems of the world famous warships of today, USS Donald Cook.

You will get a chance to witness the installation of a missile launcher on board this ship, as well as other extremely complex and interesting operations. It is a really must-see video film for every person with the interest in the engineering marvels, shipbuilding and Navy fleet.

You will definitely get impressed what the human genius can build. This is not something you can see at the ordinary ship construction or ship repair facility. Note that we also have two films from this series - Container Ships and Off-shore Oil Platforms. Have a look!

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.

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.

The video is devoted to one of the most widely used welding processes. The content is prepared by Ron Covell. Knowing the gas tungsten arc welding principles will be of great use for all people involved in aluminum shipbuilding.

Note that the present training video is only one of the series available at Libramar - the other parts making the complete set are covering the flux core arc welding (FCAW process), oxy-acetylene welding, arc welding, gas metal arc welding (GMAW process), metal inert gas welding (MIG process) and even the hybrid laser arc welding.

In order to have a full picture of the welding processes, we would recommend all students and even professionals in hull construction to download all parts of the training and go through the videos very carefully. The film is intended to be used as a comprehensive and easy to follow visual training aid supplementing the theoretical information that can be found in the relevant textbooks, standards and other publications.

The video features clear explanations by the experienced welding professional and is a great one for newcomers willing to understand the basics and to the welders who may find something new or just refresh their professional skills.

This instructional video film belongs to the Coastal Skills Training series and will demonstrate trainees how to weld commonly utilize joints when performing the welding in vertical and overhead position. The joints dealt with in this video are butt joints, T-joints, lap joints, and outside corner joints. The video is highly recommended to the welders using subject process, particularly those engaged in the ship hull construction and/or ship repair activities.

Note that we have another part of the series devoted to the welding different joints in the flat and horizontal positions with the metal inert gas welding which will also be interesting and useful for both professional and trainee welders since knowing and understanding the fundamentals of the method used for welding will definitely play an essential role in establishing the high quality weld seams and eventually result in the overall safety and quality of the vessel and any other welded structure. Download both videos and get yourself familiarized with the content.
