HIGH PRODUCTIVITY WELDING TECHNIQUES IN SHIPBUILDING AND OTHER HEAVY INDUSTRIES

A plate thickness of 35mm is not uncommon in present day ship construction and for pressure vessels, boilers, heat exchangers for nuclear plants and legs of offshore platforms 200mm can occur. For shipbuilding the submerged arc process was chosen which is versatile and particularly suitable for automated high productivity welding. Describes how some of the problems were solved which arose when welding these new materials at economic speeds.
