This article deals with the numerically controlled drafting process and cutting of steel plates by automatic flame burners for shipyard production. The computer processed production of control tapes for numerically controlled drawing machines and flame burners is now becoming highly valuable. The process of manufacturing the various parts of the hull, which may be bounded by the ship's side, e.g., double bottom floors, brackets, bulkheads, web frames, stringer plating, etc., can be fully automated and controlled by means of computer generated information. In this article the underlying principles of the methods used are briefly discussed and their overall economics reviewed.
