Abstract

The introduction and application of advanced welding methods and information technologies are important to improving the efficiency of hull construction processes and to reducing production costs. Laser-arc hybrid welding technology, which has the advantages of laser and normal arc welding, has good performance and is expected to improve productivity. The Japan Ship Technology Research Association has organized a joint industry project in collaboration with universities, classification societies and shipyards to introduce this technology to the construction of general merchant ships. This paper gives an overview of the joint research project and introduces guidelines on laser-arc hybrid welding published by ClassNK.
