STX FRANCE ORDERS ADDITIONAL PEMA AUTOMATION LINES
Pemamek has received another order from the French shipyard, STX France. Pemamek will provide hi-tech assembly and welding automation stations for panel profiles.
Pemamek has signed a contract with STX France to deliver extensive automated panel profile feeding, assembly and welding stations to the Saint-Nazaire shipyard. The new order is a continuation from the PEMA laser-hybrid welding line, delivered in 2016.
The fresh contract covers design and delivery, but also site training and production assistance of the profile feeding, assembly and welding stations. The new machinery is a part of STX France’s modernization initiative as the company’s existing profile assembling and welding equipment were causing unacceptably high maintenance costs and did not meet STX’s quality standards.
With the new state-of-the-art PEMA manufacturing stations, STX France will be able to significantly improve their throughput times, add capacity and maintain world-class production quality.
