In the shipbuilding sector there is a need for efficiency, portability and flexibility in any equipment used for measuring or fit-out of sub-systems and structures. Fortunately most portable measuring equipment in use today has these capabilities with high accuracy and ease of use also part of the platform.

Applications include flush and gap measurement of panels, 3D measurement of components and assemblies, residual torque in bolting plus many more.
Aerospace OEMs and MROs use dentCHECK systems for measuring aircraft panel surface damage and 4D InSpec systems for surface defects.
3D scanning systems to digitise worn components so that new parts can be fabricated as well as the measurement of surface roughness on machined components and shafts.
One of the critical drivers of productivity in the shipbuilding sector is the use of the latest technologies, such as laser projection systems that enable manufacturers to accurately and error-free assemble components and sub-assemblies to hulls and super-structures.
These systems project a visible laser template of light on the surface of the super-structure in 3D and help guide the assembly of mating components – saving time and providing almost fool-proof operations.
Alignment of torpedo tubes, drive shafts and periscopes
Many shipbuilding operations use products such as optical alignment telescopes from Taylor Hobson to align drive shafts and periscope shafts in submarine applications.
This type of equipment, which can also be fitted with CCD camera systems for digital output and data capture, allows shipbuilders and maintenance groups to maintain the vessel’s performance standards and help reduce maintenance turn-around times.
