Ship Building is an important and strategic industry in a number of countries around the world.This importance stems from the fact nations need to manufacture and repair its own Navy and vessels that support its primary industries.
High labor costs in the yards of Europe and USA, one of the major determinants in this cost competitive industry, has led to a gradual shift of the center of shipbuilding to these Asian nations over the last two decades.
- The Ship Building industry had always been dogged by low productivity,
- Poor productivity and
- Lack of modernization.
Unlike other fabrication industry Ship Building also process video range of steel such as I Beam, Chanel, Tubes, Pipes besides large plates. RoboPlazma™ is a single system capable of processing all on one machine at 3 to 4 times faster than conventional cutting process.
Some of the major advantages of RoboPlazma™ for Ship Building industry are as follows.
1. Large Plate (size of 3.0 x 12.0mtr) processing in single set saves Time, Manpower and Costs.
2. Auto Nesting of different shapes reduce scrap percentage.
3. 3 to 4 times faster cutting speed result in high productivity.
4. All 4 side Beveling in single set up save material handling. No shifting of plate.
5. Single, Double Bevel with 2mm root is possible.
6. Cutting accuracy +/- 0.5 mm.
7. Increase overall plant throughput by reducing cutting costs.
8. Faster execution of project.
9. Enhance profit and business growth.
