    Welding is important in the shipbuilding process because it can create joints that are water and oil-tight. As you can imagine, a strong weld is essential to the integrity of the ship. On one large ship, it can have hundreds of joints that require welding.

    Shipbuilders face many challenges in the shipyard that could prevent progress and create downtime during operation. The need for durable equipment and an experienced welder that can address the demands of different applications is vital. Gaining the best results is all about having the right equipment and right person for the job, so it’s important to assess the application and choose your equipment and professional accordingly.

    Most of us have a startling amount of tangled cables and connectors on, below, and behind our desks. Multiply that by a hundred or even a thousand, and you have a better idea of the cables and wiring that need to be managed for machinery in an entire manufacturing facility.

    Wire and cable can be found all over a manufacturing facility. They are the life source of all power equipment and are required to fit in tight spaces, reach long distances, and still manage to not get in the way of day to day operations on the floor. The answer to all this cable chaos? Cable trays.

    In order to maintain a safe shipyard, it should be guaranteed that workers keep their workplace clean and free of unnecessary tools and materials. While this goes for any working environment, it’s especially important for shipyards. The dangers of electrocution posed by electrical systems on ships and at shipyard shore facilities is significantly high and a cluttered workspace can lead to dangers posed by unseen damage to electrical cables. Both shipyard employers and employees must be fully aware of the variety of workplace hazards and dangers.
