Navigation for assembly and paint work in shipbuilding

With WERKLICHT you have a strong and multifaceted assistant that is used in many industrial sectors:

  • from design to production
  • from quality control to presentation
  • Facilitation of work, process acceleration
  • reduction of costs

The basic principle always remains the same: WERKLICHT brings your digital component information from the computer into reality. 

In production and assembly, WERKLICHT Pro transfers CAD data and work instructions to your workpieces and thus becomes an assistant to your production staff. In quality assurance, WERKLICHT Video brings even the smallest deviations to light with the projection of 3D measurement protocols. This provides you with a trend-setting and efficient control and communication tool to increase quality and quality awareness.

As digital template for painting the shell in shipbuilding

One template for all
With WERKLICHT Pro when painting the shell

Colored motifs on ships are becoming increasingly popular and represent an increasingly important marketing tool. Until now, large stencils and specially trained painters were needed to place them as planned. With this conventional method, about 90% of the time is spent on preparation and only 10% on spraying with paint.

With the WERKLICHT Pro laser stencil, it is now possible to turn this ratio around. WERKLICHT Pro displays the contours and outlines of the painting templates directly on the shell of the ship. Now the painter can immediately start applying tapes along the laser projection. 

These tapes in turn serve as a stencil. An alternative method is to apply a type of wallpaper over a large area of the surface to be painted. The area to be painted is then cut out of the wallpaper using laser projection. This also creates a stencil that the painter needs to be able to paint.

The most direct method, however, is to work without stencils and project the image directly onto the shell and then trace it.

What are my advantages?

I am a painter:
  • Less time for preparation
  • The activity becomes more intuitive and easier
  • With the help of projection, it is easy to control the image
I am a production manager:
  • Enormous time advantage in painting applications (up to 80%)
  • Complex motifs can be realized even in a short time
  • Errors are avoided – high follow-up costs as well

When the welder welds more.
WERKLICHT Pro when tack welding parts.

The use of robots as well as laser and plasma welding has decisively advanced welding technology.

In contrast, there has been no significant progress in the manual positioning of welded components. The means of choice are still welding templates or even folding rule, tape measure and pencil. However, these manual methods often result in imprecise positioning. Templates are more precise, but they are expensive to produce and store, unwieldy to handle and inflexible when it comes to a wide range of variants. 

With WERKLICHT Pro, you simply project the position of your welded components onto the assembly. You then align the welded parts according to the projected laser line and start tacking or welding.

The decisive advantage here is that the use of templates is completely eliminated – and with it their production, maintenance and storage.
