Laser alignment of the rudder stem housing

Rudder stem housing in-situ machining on a new type of LNG carrier

QuantiServ have a long-term and good cooperation with many newbuilding and repair shipyards.

Recently QuantiServ were requested to carry out in-situ machining (line boring) of a rudder stem housing on a new type of LNG carrier that is under construction in a Chinese shipyard. Our team were on-board to calibrate the inner diameter of the rudder stem housing and found that the ovality and parallelism were out of limit.

Thereafter, a laser alignment check of the rudder stem housing was done and the corrections to be made were calculated. Finally in-situ line boring of the rudder stem housing was carried out successfully.

A final check showed that the ovality, parallelism, roughness and centre line of the rudder stem housing were all within tolerance. The shipyard was very satisfied with our service and confirmed the final result.
