Halter Marine Orders Numerous Inrotech Welding Robots

Inrotech has received an order for an extensive set of welding robots for shipbuilding in the U.S. The Inrotech-MicroTwin, Inrotech-Classic and Inrotech-Crawler were purchased by Halter Marine in Pascagoula, MS, and will be used during construction of the U.S. Coast Guard's new Polar Security Cutter. The 460' vessel will support U.S. national interests in Arctic and Antarctic waters.

"We are honored to be part of this strategic cooperation with Halter Marine," said Thomas Bogner, Sales Director of Inrotech. "Enhancing robotic welding solutions with Halter Marine is an important step for both parties, and we are absolutely committed to nothing else than successful operation.

The robots will be integrated and implemented in Halter marine's production lineup to reduce manhours, increase welding quality and improve productivity. According to the company, Inrotech's welding robots usually substitutes four to five welders per shift per robot.

Instead of huge gantries with large and heavy semi-stationary robots, which were operating in dedicated production areas where the large components were transported in order to be welded, Inrotech offers small, mobile robot solutions that can be moved to or even into the existing production layout.

Inrotech's standard welding robots include:

  • Inrotech-Classic is intended for the welding of webs and bulkheads in the shipbuilding industry, but can be used for several other purposes as well.
  • Inrotech-MicroTwin is a compact and light weight gantry with two welding robots, welding machines and a scanning system for identifying stiffeners on panels. It is specifically designed for the welding of micro panels, sub-assemblies and T-profiles in the shipbuilding industry.
  • Inrotech-Crawler is designed for heavy industry for welding of high quality multipass welds on site in any position needed. The robot itself is a UR3, which is the smallest of Universal's robot series.

The technology behind the welding robots is Inrotech's own WeldLogic Technology. It can be used for the welding of almost any weld groove design and in any position as long as there is physical access for the robot.
