Aker Philadelphia Shipyard Selects Pemamek for Modern Micro Panel Welding Robot Line
Pemamek Oy Ltd was recently awarded a contract by Aker Philadelphia Shipyard for the construction and delivery of a micro panel line. Commissioning in early 2013, the new modern micro panel line replaces the existing one. This new line will substantially increase shipyard’s productivity and therefore improve Aker Philadelphia Shipyard’s market positioning.
Additionally, Pemamek Ltd contracted a yearly maintenance contract for the equipment and software for fully support in periodical maintenance and so enabling continuous production.
The micro panel line utilises high-tech Lincoln Electric Power Wave welding power sources and is based on Pemamek’s patented Vision programming system, in this case equipped with two Motoman robots. The line is equipped also with a special welding floor type conveyor solution to make working on the line safer and to transport welded web plates smoothly.
- Aker Philadelphia Shipyard decided to invest in PEMA for achieving better productivity and improved schedule at the shipyard with new and modern technology, says Sanjay Deshmuk, Vice President of Aker Philadelphia Shipyard
- APSI is our old customer since 1990’s when we delivered our vertical welding system for them. It’s great to cooperate again with Aker to improve their productivity by most modern shipbuilding production automation technology, says Jukka Rantala, Director of Sales at Pemamek Oy Ltd.
