The Finnish welding and production automation solutions provider Pemamek Ltd (www.pemamek.com
) has received a significant order from Fincantieri — one of the world’s largest shipbuilding companies, with a reputation for designing and building cruise ships, offshore vessels, naval and special vessels, as well as ferries and mega-yachts.
Pemamek will provide a PEMA laser-hybrid thin-plate flat-panel line.
Some 300m long, it will include welding, milling and assembly stations with laser-hybrid welding processes, as well as a panel-trimming station and several robotic systems for welding T-beams onto the panels.
The production line will be completely customised according to Fincantieri’s specific needs for building high-quality cruise-ship ‘panels and blocks’ with a minimum of distortion.
The level of automation in the line is being optimised to achieve a high production capacity while requiring a minimum of manual work and manpower.
The complete PEMA laser-hybrid thin-plate panel line will be delivered in 2020.
