Hull production at MEYER TURKU is performed by a flexible facility, specialised in hull blocks of different shapes, sizes and weights. We aim at highly modular solutions that will minimise the amount of work needed in ship assembly. In production work, we use traditional manual work methods as well as the newest machine vision-based robotic welding technologies.
We continuously develop our production towards processes applying lean manufacturing methods, where people are placed at the core, with continuous improvement, quality, and timely action serving as supporting pillars. These measures will help us achieve stabilised production, stable and standardised processes, and visual production management.
Simulation and steering of production play a major role in meeting these goals.
