In the quest for renewable energy, wind turbines play an important role. Efficiently generating energy from the wind requires advanced aerodynamic shapes and highly accurate airfoils. Even the smallest deviation in a blade profile can cost the operator in terms of lost energy revenue.
With our Metronor systems, we can meet challenges like increasing tolerances and the inspection of ever larger windmill blades.
Metronor systems provide reliable results, whilst being remarkable fast to set up.
Application possibilities are:
GEOMETRY ASSURANCE: MINIMIZE SCRAP AND REWORK
One important requirement for building quality blades is the need to control a complete production process all the way from blade design, molding and finishing, through to the inspection of the finished blade surface.
Metronor has developed a series of products that are designed to assist in securing the geometry through all these process stages. Not only will a systematic approach to geometry assurance result in a high-quality product for the end customer. It will also minimize scrap and necessary rework during the blade manufacturing process.
MOLD AND PLUG MEASUREMENTS
Our systems are ideally suited for geometry verification of plugs and molds. Applications include both certification of plug and mold geometry, in addition to scheduled verification and maintenance checks.
The probing capability of the Metronor systems allows the user to capture a large number of measurement points in an extremely short time – but without overloading the amount of measured points as with a regular 3D scanning system.
