Shipbuilding is one of the most complex construction jobs created by man. Processes have to be strictly aligned, when steel plates are turned into giant vessels.
The biggest challenge is to keep the flow running, while maintaining a tight grip on building quality and making optimal use of valuable space at your yard.
Thanks to technological advancements, this smart welding robot can work almost twice as fast as a human.
Automated technology and robotic systems are as big a part of modern shipbuilding as many other manufacturing industries.
Robots, carrying out welding, blasting, heavy lifting and other tasks, are helping to plug the labour gap at shipyards, while sparing their human colleagues the most dangerous and thankless tasks.
