Advanced Robotic Technology (ART) is participating in AUSMARINE 2010, Australia’s only specialised commercial maritime trade exhibition.
ART is a major manufacturer of CNC routers and plasma cutters in Australia.
AUSMARINE 2010 returns to Perth this year and will be held from 23 November to 25 November 2010.
Organiser Kishore Navani says that the AUSMARINE exhibition was dominated by the local shipbuilding industry when last presented in 2003, but this year’s show will be a more international event, reflecting the changing face of the Australian shipbuilding industry.
Along with some of the leading names from Australian and global work boat builders, ART will be showcasing the latest advancements in CNC router technology, which can add significantly to cost savings in the manufacture of aluminium ships.
Concerns about the use of aluminium in naval ships have largely been eliminated through technology advancements including production equipment such as CNC aluminium flatbed routers.
ART’s automated aluminium routers are currently being used by aluminium ship builders, Austal and Incat.
The automated aluminium routers have been specifically designed for processing aluminium sheet and plate on process areas up to 20m in length.
ART’s aluminium routers range offers rigid cutting with high feed rates, inkjet part numbering and alignment marking, in-built swarf transfer system as well as high-powered liquid cooled spindles.
ART’s aluminium routers reduce production time and material wastage for shipbuilders, lowering costs and increasing profit margins.
