The shipbuilding industry needs automation and mechanization to solve reduction of skilled workers and labor shortage. Ship manufacturing process is the lack of automation than standardized manufacturing field. In this paper, we design and development an process automation system for hand rail production. Mechanical parts of the cutting process was designed with efficiency, productivity and reliability, CATIA and ANSYS, the stability of the mechanical structure was confirmed. System control using a PCNC controller to provide an open and scalable, and operate using touch-screen display control and monitoring of the system was performed. The automatic system successfully passed the driving test and processing test, and it showed an excellent performance.
