A ship at sea depends upon the knowledge, skills and self-reliance of the crew to carryout necessary maintenance and repair work. One of the important skills required is agood command of modern welding techniques.The purpose of the Unitor Welding Handbook for maritime welders is to provide guidancein modern welding and related processes and to provide the welder with a source ofpractical information on the right solution to specific onboard welding problems.
Unitor’s business activity traces back to 1905 and the company NAG with Acetylene production as a basic activity.The first maritime deliveries from this period were supply of Acetylene as fuel gas for the guiding light beams fromnumerous lighthouses along the long and weather-beaten coast of Norway.The focus changed towards gas and arc welding techniques when these were developed to useful production andrepair methods through the 1930es.A main objective became to develop and maintain a range of welding equipment that is suitable for onboard welding,backed by a worldwide service network, training and documentation.In 1943 the company name was changed to UNITOR. Mergers and increasing activity in the department for sales toships led to the establishment of this department as a separate company; Unitor Ships Service AS in 1968.In 005 the company was bought by Wilh.Wilhelmsen ASA and the brand Unitor is now incorporated in Barwil UnitorShips Service, a part of Wilhelmsen Maritime Services AS, a company in the Wilh. Wilhelmsen Group
Eperience gained from user contact and welding training of crewmembers showed that documentation aimed specifically at on board welding solutions was needed. Thisled to the development of the first Unitor welding handbook for on board repair andmaintenance welding already the 1950es.This edition of the Unitor Welding Handbook builds upon all the earlier editions and onproduct development and eperience gained since the previous edition.Barwil Unitor Ships Service enjoys close co-operation with its customers and would like to thank the many who have taken the effort to contribute with eamples of successfulsolutions to real life maintenance situations.
