Robotics for Marine Sector
Automated technology and robotic systems are as integral to modern boat building as other manufacturing industries. Robots are now undertaking many of the routine jobs or accessing the hard to reach areas that were traditionally dependant human labour.
As the number of skilled workers continues to decline, boat builders are now looking for alternative ways to remain competitive in a global market.
Luxury yacht and boat builders are now seeking out new methods for more precise construction as well as speeding up the whole production timeframe.
We have been working with yacht and boat builders to introduce automation into their sites, to improve efficiency and improve processes through robotic systems. Our robotic solutions are being used for precision hole cutting, trimming of fibreglass moulds, sanding, applying gelcoats to hulls and decks to name a few.
Using robotics for laborious tasks is both time saving and consistent in quality, but more over it frees up skilled staff to work on more intricate and technical aspects of the yacht and boat development.
