Halter Marine orders welding robots from Danish company
The three machines will be used in the construction of the polar security cutter
(ODENSE, Demark and PASCAGOULA, Miss.) — The Danish company Inrotech has received an order for an extensive set of welding robots for shipbuilding in the United States. The Inrotech MicroTwin, Inrotech Classic and Inrotech Crawler were purchased by Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Miss., and will be used during construction of U.S. Coast Guard’s new polar security cutter (PSC). The 460-foot vessel will support U.S. national interests in Arctic and Antarctic waters.
Inrotech’s automated robot welding solution is specifically customized according to Halter Marine’s production needs to efficiently weld the PSC along with a variety of other oceangoing vessels.
“We are honored to be part of this strategic cooperation with Halter Marine,” said Thomas Bøgner, sales director of Inrotech. “To enhance robotic welding solutions with Halter Marine is an important step for both parties, and we are absolutely committed to nothing else than successful operation.
“Inrotech is bringing the three best welding robots to Halter Marine giving the best possible operational advantage in North America. Now we strive to customize, integrate and implement these advanced welding robots for Halter Marine.”
This advanced welding solution brings increased capability in automated welding, the improved manufacturing quality of shipbuilding and streamlined production processes while reducing the need for costly rework.
Halter Marine is a leader in the design and construction of medium-sized ships in the United States. The company designs and builds a wide variety of oceangoing vessels.
The Inrotech robot welding solution will be delivered to Halter Marine early in 2021.
