Remarkable Achievements-New Technique and Equipment Applied in IMC-YY Bulbous Bow Conversion
In late September, a large-scale PCTC eased away from the dock in IMC-YY slowly. The vessel has just finished bulbous bow conversion applying new technique and equipment. First, adopted the laser leveler to mark out outside the dock so as to control the accuracy of the joint cutting plane at±1mm, then applied the semi-auto cutter for cutting with non-allowance. Eventually, employed semi-automatic welding car (first case in China) to finish the job. It ultimately takes 4.5 days to finish the project, which is ahead of schedule for half a day along with higher quality and achieved general consent of ship owners and surveyors.
