Application of this method covers plate jointing of panels at fabrication stage, curved shell plate jointing at assembly stage and fixing skin plate and stiffeners for block joint weld at erection stage. One-side welding is done by use of a special automatic welder including the backing equipment and the specific jig. Welding at erection stage, however, presents a problem of how to transfer this equipment. The Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Company developed a "work unit," making it possible to install a special automatic welder with an oil hydraulic jig for fitting.
