We stock automation spares for the maritime industry.
The Maritime industry is complex, meaning it's been understandably slower than other sectors to implement automation.
Cargo Shipping International reports that fully automated terminals handle only 10% of container volume. And, with the demand for lower shipping costs growing and the need for better ways to control ports and terminals, the industry is increasingly turning to automated technologies.
Autonomous ships are one example of automation that the maritime sector could apply. However, these technologies are still in their infancy and not fully automated yet.
More commonly, industrial sensors are used to check fluid levels such as fuel and water ballast. Combined with other automation technologies, such as drives, pumps and motors, this helps with weight distribution, resource consumption, and overall safety.
Unfortunately, however, machines will break, particularly in corrosive saltwater environments. Whilst many ships have a long lifespan, ageing machinery is very susceptible to breakdowns.
Fortunately, finding replacement automation parts doesn't need to be complicated.
Whether you need parts for the ships themselves, the manufacturing process or dockside logistics, we can help.
