DMTC has been awarded the Maritime Australia – 2015 National Defence Innovation Award. This award was presented at the Pacific 2015 Conference in Sydney and recognises companies who are leaders in technology and innovation in the defence maritime domain.
The award recognises the work undertaken by DMTC to develop Tandem Gas Metal Arc Welding (T-GMAW) as a method to address weld induced distortion to improve the quality and productivity of naval manufacturing. The collaborative project, started in 2011, consisted of research and industry partners, including Forgacs Engineering, University of Wollongong, ANSTO and DST Group. The project successfully addressed a number of weld induced distortion issues associated with the fabrication of Air Warfare Destroyer modules, eliminating significant amounts of thermal rework whilst increasing productivity and weld quality.
DMTC is delighted with this award and congratulates all other winners and shortlisted candidates.Posted by DMTC on October 7th, 2015
