Ship building

In the shipbuilding industry, shipbuilders (or shipwrights) produce entire prefab sections known as ‘block constructions’ in their specialized shipyards. They are used for ferries, submarines, tankers, yachts, naval vessels and multi-purpose vessels. To fabricate these large panels, shipbuilders need machines that can process large and thick plates by plasma cutting, oxy-fuel cutting, beveling and marking. Also surface treatment is applied like shot blasting and painting to ensure the best quality possible. Our technologically advanced machinery allows for these operations in an efficient, accurate and cost effective way.
