This year’s METSTRADE Show hosted the second edition of a round table dedicated to the use of materials for nautical construction. The Round Table had a particular focus on the use of 3D printing and rapid prototyping for nautical construction. The latest news in boat construction The first day on stage focused on the latest news in boat construction. An interesting range of topics were discussed, including an innovative sensor that can be incorporated into composite structures to measure deformation in situ and the load conditions inside a component. New engineering solutions designed to solve the issues of equilibrium and overall rigidity that affect superfast RIBs which speed along at up to 60 knots were also examined. And a material that can reduce fuel consumption by four per cent without increasing costs was presented – a real breakthrough for the nautical industry. What is happening in the shipbuilding industry?» […]
