Photos: Hull of Australian Icebreaker Under Construction

The hull of Australia’s new Antarctic icebreaker RSV Nuyina is rapidly taking shape in Damen’s Romanian shipyard. Some of the key components of the ship are currently being welded and fitted as the hull nears completion. Once the hull is complete, the dry dock will be filled with water to allow the ship to be floated out to a larger wet dock, where construction of the superstructure will begin. Nuyina is due for delivery in 2020. This 300 ton section is part of the top of the hull. At the bottom of the section are two hawse pipes through which the 275 meter-long anchor chains will run when deployed. When not deployed, the chains are stored in chain lockers behind the bell-shaped end connectors that are visible between the hawse pipes. These end connectors connect the bitter end of the anchor chain (the last link in the chain) to the ship. The bitter end link is attached to a quick release in the event of an emergency, allowing the chain and anchor to be cast from the ship. The deck above (deck 5) is the mooring deck for winches and ropes to tie the ship up in port. The deck above that contains an air chemistry lab, cargo space for dangerous goods, as well as a paint store ...

A CNC water jet machine slices into all kinds of tough materials with high velocity and

A CNC water jet machine slices into all kinds of tough materials with high velocity and pressure. Let’s take a look at the intricacies of the process! A CNC water jet is an industrial tool that uses a high-pressure water jet to cut various materials. It can use water alone to cut soft materials like wood and rubber, or the water can be mixed with an abrasive substance (like garnet or aluminum oxide) to cut harder materials. To reduce noise and splash, the actual cutting is typically done underwater, and the water pressure is usually between 20,000 to 55,000 PSI (pounds per square inch), or 50,000 to 60,000 PSI. Think of a CNC water jet as having around 30 times more pressure than a power washer yet channeling the spray through a narrower jewel nozzle (usually around 0.010” to 0.015” in diameter) to keep it consistent. This jewel nozzle is selected specifically for its corrosion resistance. Water is normally introduced into the CNC water jet unit using a pump and filter. The filtering process is crucial because only clean water can attain the ultra-high pressure needed to create a consistent cutting stream. Filtering also protects the high-pressure parts; though in some cas...

Pipe made of polyvinyl chloride, commonly called PVC, is used in a variety of residential applications,

Pipe made of polyvinyl chloride, commonly called PVC, is used in a variety of residential applications, from plumbing systems to a host of cool craft projects (such as DIY racks, organizers, and even furniture). Joining a pipe to a pipe fitting requires specially formulated primer and cement—no ordinary adhesive but a chemical solvent that melts the surface of the PVC and then quickly re-hardens to fuse the pieces together. The result is an airtight, leak-proof bond similar to what you get with welding metal. The process involves applying primer to the outside of the pipe and the inside of the fitting, which cleans and preps the PVC. After about 10 seconds, you next apply cement to the same areas, then insert the pipe snugly into the fitting and allow the cement to set. Simple as that sounds, gluing PVC pipe is easy to mess up, and if you make a mistake, there’s no going back—you’ll have to cut out the pipe and start over. So heed this list of dos and don’ts to ensure success on your PVC projects. There are different kinds of cements (and primers) on the market formulated for various types of plastic piping. Read labels carefully and be sure to select cement made specifically fo...

While laser marking and engraving are well-established processes, innovations and investments in the sector are continuing

While laser marking and engraving are well-established processes, innovations and investments in the sector are continuing to push performance boundaries. With more industries bringing laser marking in-house, faster systems with higher wattage and bigger bed sizes are in high demand. Key components in laser marking advances are proprietary software and connectivity that are offering previously unavailable marking options or far smoother integration into production processes—particularly on-the-fly applications. And, with brand protection an ever-present concern, marking of date codes, serial numbers and other identifying data on vital components helps protect manufacturers from the liability of counterfeit parts and offers quality assurance to customers. For example, FDA-required unique device identification (UDI) codes track and trace medical devices. Another key advantage of laser marking is on-the-fly identification of parts in constant motion. Inks can’t always fulfill that need, and can also create clogging problems and, as a consumable item, must be managed. Lasers eliminate those issues. When Dapra Marking Systems brought on laser industry veteran Dave Noonan as director ...

We’ve all seen cheap welders for sale from the usual online sources, small inverter stick welders

We’ve all seen cheap welders for sale from the usual online sources, small inverter stick welders for a very tempting price. But are they any good? When my local supermarket had one in its offers aisle, I took the plunge and placed it in my cart alongside the usual week’s supply of Marmite. That was some time around the start of the year. What I’d bought from my local Aldi was a Workzone WWIW-80, an 80 A unit that had cost me somewhere just over £60 (about $75), and came with welding leads and a rather poor quality face shield. The German discount supermarket chains specialise in periodic offers on all kinds of interesting things, so a very similar unit has also been for sale with a Parkside brand from their competitor Lidl. These small inverter welders are fairly generic, so they can be found with a variety of brands and specifications at a lower price online if you don’t mind forgoing the generous Aldi 3 year guarantee. The cheapest I’ve seen was about £35, or $44, but that price included only the inverter, without welding leads. As a working blacksmith my dad has had a high-quality inverter welder since the 1990s, so my frame of reference is based upon that. He tried one of t...
