Shipyard Improves Welding Process wtih Automation

It has long been considered that the most productive and cost effective welding position within the shipbuilding industry is the flat position (PA). To satisfy this, great emphasis is put in at the design stage to maximize the use of this position. However, even when adopting this philosophy, welding has to be carried out in a variety of other positions. Many shipyards have found major benefits...
