Welding and production automation provider Pemamek said it has received another order from the French shipyard STX France to provide high-tech assembly and welding automation stations for panel profiles.

The Finland based firm said it 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 continuum for the PEMA laser-hybrid welding line delivered in 2016.

The new 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 too high maintenance costs and did not meet STX's quality standards.

"Our machinery for profile assembling and welding was outdated and we needed to invest in new, modern technology," said Florent Camaret, Investment project manager, STX France. "Results from the PEMA laser-hybrid and milling project were convincing. With this new investment, we wanted to make sure that our production cycle will stay as smooth as possible and equipment will speak the same language, thus we wanted to continue with PEMA technology."

The new order includes one PEMA profile feeding line as well as two automated PEMA profile assembly and welding stations. Each of the solutions will be integrated in STX France's existing panel lines.
