Shipbuilding

High-tech know-how for the next generation shipyard

Shipbuilding is a specific activity including two sub-disciplines: cutting parts and cutting large panels for "block" assembly. Cutting parts requires part marking, cutting and beveling with highest possible efficiency and accuracy. Cutting block assembly panels (over 12 meter wide) requires large machines equipped with dedicated tools for plasma cutting, oxy-fuel cutting, grinding, beveling, high-speed text marking and automated handling of panels with different thicknesses. Only ESAB has the experience and technical background to handle these applications.
