Weld distortion – the problem
The defence sector, combined with vessel refurbishment and repair, make up the vast majority of the UK's shipbuilding industry.
The government's investment in CVF carriers has led to a dramatic increase in activity for the industry; however, weld distortion continues to be a problem for shipbuilders, resulting in time and cost associated with rework.
BOC has the solution
BOC is leading the development of new applications in flame straightening which can significantly reduce the effects of weld distortion.
Combining this with BOC's welding process consulting services can help deliver the improvements in efficiency to keep customers competitive in this global market.
