Plate edge milling machines PFM for wind tower construction

LINSINGER plate edge milling machines are used for plate edge preparation of heavy plates for wind tower construction.

Highly Versatile Plate Production In addition to rectangular plates, LINSINGER Plate Edge Milling Machines can also mill the edge profiles on trapezoidal and tapered plates. These are required for the tapered geometry of wind tower structures. Plate edges for plate thickness reductions (taper edges) can also be milled. The plates are pulled through the 2 cutting stations on each side of the machine. The cutter heads are equipped with special carbide tips that harmlessly dissipate any thermal impact. The machine is designed for short processing times and efficient plate handling starting from start to finish.

Highest Quality & Lowest Running Cost

All 4 plate edges are milled using only 2 milling units. One of the milling units is rotated ±90° to cross-mill the leading and trailing plate edges. Both longitudinal sides are processed simultaneously at a maximum milling speed of 10 m/min. This increased capacity significantly reduces the overall running cost. The plates are positioned automatically according to higher level data input, then clamped hydraulically with tongs and fixed by additional vacuum plates (This special plate clamping system allows free overhead crane access to the plate). Highly accurate drives on over 40 axes and the CNC control system are further elements guaranteeing plates with highest precision and most exact tolerances. The sandwich design of the cutter head rings allow plate producers to mill highly flexible plate edge profiles with minimal tooling costs, even for low quantity batches as low as 1 plate.
