Cost-Saving Numeric Control Service Offered By Maritime Design
Maritime Design, Inc., who offer naval architecture and marine engineering services to the marine industry from their Jacksonville, Fla., facilities, have recently developed a numeric control (NC) parts generation service capability.
According to company president J im Konopasek, the service is cost-effective for single hull production, allowing yards to increase productivity and better utilize their NC equipment. Builders who do not own NC equipment, now have the option of subcontracting burning work with cost savings.
At present, the service comprises computerized hull lines fairing, hull geometry file, parts generation and nesting. Control tapes are produced in either ESSI or EIA format for X-Y axis burning machines. Additionally, existing tapes owned by the yard may be read into the computer and translated for CAD design.
