Abstract:

Since its introduction to U.S. shipbuilding sortie ten years ago, NC Lofting and plate cutting has been regarded by most as a production tool for the larger shipyards only. This presentation is intended to dispel those thoughts by deortionstating active usage of NC Lofting by the smaller shipyards as a tool to increase production efficiency and reduce costs.
