Automatic Rib Welders

ERGONOMIC INTERVENTIONS IN SHIPYARDS

Hazard: Welding rib stiffeners onto steel plate manually require workers to kneel or squat to perform the tasks stressing the back, neck and legs.

Solution: Automatic, semi-automatic and robotic welders (see photos) minimize the interaction of individual workers to complete the tasks.
