Precision during subassembly provides advantages during final assembly: Quicker lead times, lower assembly costs. NET1AX or NET05AX with 3-DIM PC-Basic represent a giant step forward in reaching this goal. Our measuring and survey systems can be employed successfully in the following fields and applications:

  • The geometry of components is frequently affected by several production steps due to the heat generated during and by welding. High precision checks and comparisons after each production process help provide information about the effects such as welding parameters and welding sequences. Reproducibility is increased if the ramifications of the welding shrinkage are known and corresponding countermeasures are put in place as early as the component design phase.
  • The geometry of sections manufactured during prefabrication can be checked before entering the final assembly phase. Expensive and time-consuming reworking can be avoided or reduced to a minimum. The linking of subassembled sections can be simulated by the 3-D software before actually joining them.
  • Generating and positioning subassembly sections.
  • Scanning the ship hull.
  • Automatic marking of nominal positions on curved surfaces.

Production in the shipbuilding industry is rather individualized. This is why 3-DIM was equipped with highly effective test and inspection planning tools. Comparison of measured to target values, data archiving in a database, and statistical analyses are convincing advantages of an advanced comprehensive and standardized data processing system.

The use of the system has led to profound changes in production and is fast becoming the measuring tool of choice for shipbuilders.

NET instruments + 3-DIM PC-Basic is an indispensable tool for precision production.

Advantages of Our Measuring Systems:

  • Easy to use and install, quick setup
  • High accuracy
  • Instrument alignment with only two known measuring point
  • Measurements possible in floating dock
  • Extended data flow simplifies documentation: Instrument -> Field logger (3-DIM Observer) -> PC software (3-DIM PC-Basic)-> PC software (3-DIM CAD-Port)-> Other PC software (e.g. 3-DIM PT or Excel)
  • Mobile: The instrument is easily transported to the contractor to measure vendor parts
