Cleveland, Ohio.  Great Lakes Shipyard announces the installation of a new state-of-the-art plasma cutting machine, the Plate Pro Extreme 3100.
 

The addition of this cutting table expands the range of services available to its customers and greatly improves the efficiency of Great Lakes Shipyard operations, while also enhancing the quality and precision of the work being produced.  Bringing this capability in-house allows the Shipyard to make more of its own parts without relying on outside vendors or subcontractors.
 
An American made product of Koike Aronson Inc./Ransome, the plasma burn table is an automated dual side drive, plasma cutting machine that utilizes the latest technologies to provide speed, accuracy, versatility, and durability in thermal cutting.  The machine has the capability to burn plate up to 6-inches thick with a table capacity for plates of up to 10-feet wide by 20-feet long.
 
Welders, engineers, and management personnel received operational and safety training on the Plate Pro Extreme 3100, and the new cutting machine is now in service and available to provide support to the Shipyard and its customers.
