Abstract:

In 1974 OXYTECHNIK designed a web fabrication system comprising equipment for mechanized handling and welding stiffeners to plates and a conveying system. This first concept was the basis for a feasibility study to investigate the possibilities of highly mechanized respectively automatic fabrication of webs for building ships. This paper will discuss this feasibility study the history, requirements, result, description, special features, and conclusion.
