Fincantieri shipyard manufactures ships with PEMA Welding Automation.

Fincantieri and its Monfalcone Shipyard decided to continue with a Pemamek welding automation technology in shipyard’s production lines. Fincantieri ordered a unique profile processing line and one side welding station with laser-hybrid process and integrated milling. The exact amount of the contract is not revealed by the parties, but it is in the order of several million euros.  


Previously Pemamek has supplied patented Vision Robot Stations for welding panels to Fincantieri. The shipyard has found the results with PEMA systems productive and advanced, so there was a ground laid to further co-operation and trust between the two companies.



Based on good relationship, Fincantieri and Pemamek have revealed a contract of laser-hybrid based one-sided welding station and a unique profile processing line. The contract consists of a full turn-key delivery with designing, manufacturing, assembly, installation and training. The delivery of these both outstanding solutions will take place during summer 2013 at Monfalcone.  



At the first stage of the project, PEMA created efficient solutions for profile processing and plate joining in close cooperation with Fincantieri. The cooperation was fruitful and productive from the very beginning. As Pemamek stands for one of the only global professional manufacturers of both types of complete systems, a package solution was the best way to solve Fincantieri’s production needs.
