    ... for companies in the wind energy. The placement of plies during lay-up in production of rotor blades manufactured from fiber composites is the most.... Thus, well-known manufacturers of wind turbines rely on LAP laser projection systems in order to increase the efficiency of their lay-up processes. With COMPOSITE PRO LAP provides a turnkey solution for companies in the aerospace, automotive and wind energy sector, producing components from composite materials. One laser projection system consists of one or more CAD-PRO laser projectors and the laser projection software PRO-SOFT with multi-tasking abilities. Even at large distances, high-precision CAD-PRO laser projectors enable true-to-size display of laser outlines of every individual carbon fiber mat. Laser lines are generated based upon CAD data. This is much more efficient than using physical templates or error-prone measurement techniques. Manufacturers of wind turbines may significantly optimize the workflow and quality of their production. Due to omission of conventional templates and better management of workflows, productivity can be increased by up to 100 percent. For more than 30 years LAP has been developing, manufacturing and distributing laser measurement systems, line lasers and laser projectors for industrial and medical applications. LAP products are high-precision devices Made in Germany. They are setting the standards in a wide range of markets such as steel, tire, automotive and wood industries. ...

    UK: JDR to expand with PD Ports at Port of Hartlepool 10/21/2015
    ...-capacity horizontal helix lay-up machine to manufacture umbilicals meeting the highest standards and technical specifications for steel and thermoplastic. The expansion will also provide additional storage for 6,000 metric tonnes of equipment. David Currie, CEO of JDR, says: “On behalf of JDR we are delighted to be growing our footprint and manufacturing capabilities at Hartlepool. Crucially, this investment will enable JDR to offer unrivalled technical expertise to design, test and deliver the next generation of subsea technology. By planning for the long term, we can anticipate the future needs of our customers and cement our position as a trusted partner, and be an integral part of clients’ project success. It is good news for the area and more specifically for the current workforce who continue to be a fundamental part of our achievements.  We are equally excited to continue our relationship with PD Ports with the expansion of our facility.” Richard Turner, COO of JDR, adds: “After the initial investment in our facility in Hartlepool in 2008, we have continued to invest incrementally in the site which is now a recognised world-wide centre of excellence for the design and manufacture of subsea power cables and umbilicals.  This next exciting phase of expansion, necessitated by growing demand for our products, underlines our long-term commitment to Hartlepool and will give JDR the capacity to be the technology partner of choice for customers in all segments of the offshore energy industry.” Jerry Hopkinson, PD Ports’ Managing Director Bulks and Port Services, commented: “We are pleased to see PD Ports’ relationship with JDR continue through the growth of its world-class manufacturing facilities in Hartlepool. Our infrastructure at the Port is well suited to support companies within the energy sector due to its excellent transport links and distance to operations in the southern sector of the North Sea. “The continued support and investment by JDR further strengthens the Port’s position as the hub for a thriving cluster of offshore related businesses and adds to its growing number of successes in this sector.” ...

  • USA - New Systems Automate Composite wind turbine blade fabrication, double throughput and increase quality 04/29/2009
    ..., capable of spraying in-mold coatings, dispensing/lay-up of glass and carbon fiber materials, and dispensing/application of adhesive. It brings 3 m/sec... (10 ft/sec) lay-up speed to placement of materials in blade skin, spar cap, and sheer web molds, with laser- and vision-based wrinkle detection in cross or longitudinal directions. Depending on the laminate schedule, the system can reduce lay-up time 85 percent on a 45-meter blade. Programmed off line, the CNC-controlled system consists of a gantry system with multi-axis end effectors capable of manipulating spray heads and adhesive applicators, as well as tooling for spooling and placing materials. After application of gel-coat with spray-head tooling, a ply-generator with a ten-roll magazine of material cuts and dispenses plies to the lay-up end effector on the gantry. The lay-up end effector spools up the material supplied by the ply generator. As the fabric is paid out onto the mold, a pair of articulating powered brushes smoothes it to the tool surface. The lay-up system is mechanically repeatable to ±2 mm, with application tolerance of ±5 mm. Two such gantry systems adjacent to one another can each produce a 45-meter blade-shell half in less than two hours, with half the manual labor of conventional methods. The gantry system rides on rails that are flush with the floor. It also carries bulk supply systems for gel-coat and adhesive. The RMPS is controlled by a CNC and powered with programmable drives and servomotors. Off-line programming software developed by MAG creates the CNC code from imported CAD data. MAG has also developed a new, patent-pending quick-cure mold system utilizing tooling it will supply. The molds are produced using the customer's CAD data. The system yields a finished blade to spec with each cycle. It can be infused with resin in an hour, followed by a two-hour cure, about half the normal time. At the show, MAG will exhibit sample parts representing a 100 mm-thick root section and root spar cap system. The latter will show three zones of material and three thicknesses, demonstrating the system can infuse and cure all three zones at the same time quickly. Like the lay-up system, the infusion/curing system includes process control metrics for resin metering, temperatures, blocked channels, etc., with alarm limits. On the finishing side of blade automation, MAG will introduce a five-axis machining system for root drilling/milling/sawing. The company is the leading supplier of composites processing technology for the aerospace industry, and produces a full range of upstream and downstream composites solutions, such as tape laying, fiber placement, machining, robotic painting and optical inspection systems, as well as an extensive service support capability. For metalworking production of wind-power parts, MAG is introducing a new line of horizontal turning centers (HTC's) in the U.S. that combines a wide array of unusual capabilities for finishing a large part in one setup. Ideal for rotor shafts, pinions and similar shaft-type parts, these machines can perform operations unheard of on a typical HTC: deep-hole drilling, serrating, grinding, hard turning, notch milling, hobbing, grinding, as well as cut-to-length and centering, rough and finish turning. European wind industry leaders are already using these machines to produce parts up to 1500 mm diameter and 2800 mm long. From blade tip to output shaft, MAG demonstrates at WINDPOWER 2009 that it has a total package of automation solutions for turbine and component manufacturers.For more information please contact Trevor Sievert at ts@windfair.net...
