Learn to Weld with a Virtual Personal Trainer

, a recent addition, tungsten inert gas welding (TIG). Single-V butt welds, fillet welds, square butt welds, pipe joints and overlay welding can all be practiced in various positions using plastic workpieces attached to the stand-up terminal. A welding torch is used to create a seam that is displayed in real time on the simulator’s touchscreen display and the 3D glasses worn by the user.“Ghost”, the virtual trainer, is a huge asset when learning how to handle the torch. It shows the path the torch should take and indicates the correct speed, angle and distance between torch and workpiece

The news comes as Xeneta announces it has now built its database to over 55 million contracted rates, while also welcoming some major names to its community of global shippers. Xeneta, which crowd-sources data from more than 700 leading international businesses to provide real-time rates transparency, opened its US office in late 2016 to take advantage of the world’s largest container shipping market. Since that point it has grown both its market presence and offering, launching into the air freight segment while expanding its ocean freight data from 60,000 to over

Assessing Skills in the Maritime Industry

; But what about skills? There has been much less research on how to most effectively teach and assess skills. On the teaching side, the maritime industry has led in many ways, and has also followed the example of other industries by employing comprehensive hands-on training and repeated practice in both real and simulated environments. When this kind of skills training is preceded by on-line learning of the knowledge that underlies those skills, the outcome can be excellent. But how do we know for sure? How can we deeply and comprehensively assess the skills we teach? It is actually quite difficult. In

The second, the Smart Ropes system, is still in early development and helps eliminate the age-old problems associated with mooring ropes. Constructed using the Timm Acera rope range, an embedded load sensor provides real time nformation on tension, along with logging usage and longevity, relaying data to a base station located on deck.   Giving an overview of rope tension via the Digital Mooring Assistant, Smart Ropes enables crew to moor their vessels safely, accurately and efficiently.

with customers. In order to make safety reporting easier and more effective, Danos developed “W.A.T.C.H.” cards (Working Always to Control Hazards) that workers can submit via paper slips or electronically. This program allows managers to closely track safety successes or concerns in real time and to use that information to improve safety throughout the company. In 2016, Danos employees submitted nearly 17,000 W.A.T.C.H. cards.   Danos also works in partnership with its customers to develop safety standards and procedures that are aligned and meet project needs.

Oil has developed a range of Digital Intelligent Artificial Lift (DIAL) solutions that deliver significant operational benefits and enhancements far beyond the current capabilities of existing gas lift solutions. Through its flagship solution APOLLO, operators can vary gas injection rates and depth in real-time without production interruption and well intervention and can increase recovery from individual wells by up to 30%.   Recent tests showed that APOLLO can deliver as much as 1,000 BOPD (Barrels of Oil per Day) more oil production from a typical well and, in one scenario, a 110% increase
