New Process for Welding Aluminum Underwater
Aluminum vessels are making their way into the U.S. Navy fleet. While repairs to steel-hulled ships on the water are nothing new, working with aluminum presents far greater challenges. Wouldn't dry-docking ease the aluminum-welding process? Yes, it would, but with global reach, U.S. Navy ships can be at nearly any point on earth, and dry-docks are rarely near.
In addition, the dry-docking process plays havoc with the Navy's intricate deployment scheduling and dry-docking is much more expensive than keeping the ship in the water when performing maintenance and repair.
With dry-docking currently as the only option for weld repair of aluminum-hulled ships, the Navy is searching for new solutions. It may have found one with a promising new technique: underwater aluminum gas-metal-arc-welding (GMAW) in a hyperbaric chamber.
Tech Tip: Adjusting VIKING™ Helmets for Bifocals
VIKING™ Welding Helmets are cheater lens capable; however, sometimes you want to be able to use your own bifocals while you weld for a better view.
Dennis Klingman demonstrates how the larger lens and adjustable headgear on VIKING™ 3350 series helmets allow you to do this.
Women's Safety Glasses
Lincoln Electric has expanded its Women's Red Line™ apparel group with safety glasses targeted toward female welders.
These lightweight glasses are offered in smaller sizes and have anti-fog clear lenses. They also feature a wide field of vision and pink temple pieces.
How I Did It Project: Shark Sculpture
Stuart Peterman made this five foot long shark sculpture from hand-hammered stainless steel. All welding was done with his trusty Lincoln Electric SP-135 Plus wire feeder welder (current model is POWER MIG® 140C
The shark sculpture was displayed at the Museum of Art - Fort Lauderdale, in their "SHARK" exhibition.
