More innovation for quicker propeller assembly

MMG has developed the Virtual Contact Test (VCT) to reduce expenditure on propeller assembly. With VCT the conical hub bore of the new propeller is measured precisely down to a hundredth of a millimetre and aligned with the design data of the existing shaft while the propeller is still in the MMG works. Thus the propeller is supplied ready for fitting. If required MMG engineers will test the dimensions of the ship‘s shaft using a mobile measuring unit.

The VCT, which is recognised by the leading classification societies, makes the traditional spot check fully superfluous – in both redesign programmes and on new ships.
