The manufacture of marine gas turbines offers no room for inconsistency. With individual components all having different geometries from original CAD models, it might seem appropriate to adopt manual processes, but these present a number of additional challenges common across other gas and steam-turbine industries.
Manual processes consume more time in the manufacturing process and often struggle to recreate pinpoint accuracy. As a result, cycle times are high, consistency sporadic and turnaround times lengthy.
By automating processes, you increase output and reduce cycle times without forfeiting accuracy and consistency. Automation has also proven to reduce costs by up to 50% with reductions in cycle time, non-conformance, labour costs through elimination of handwork and human error.
If your business is involved in machining or blending complex geometric components such as turbine and compressor blades, or ship propellers, we can help you increase consistency of quality, and deliver outstanding solutions.
