Hufschmied machining systems for the energy industry

Large wind turbines are plants that have to meet the highest requirements in terms of stability, precision and reliability. While the rotors and the design of the outer shell must be as light, dimensionally accurate and as stable as possible, the components inside the turbines must be just as resistant to extreme temperatures. Hufschmied offers the optimized tools for high-precision machining processes of all materials used.

Rotor blades and outer skin – Innovative lightweight components made for heavy weather

 

Composites, as used in large wind turbines, place the highest quality demands on the machining process and tool. Exact dimensional accuracy and the best surface quality are essential. Hufschmied has developed innovative special tools for machining fiber-reinforced plastics, which enable particularly economical and reliable machining. The process forces that occur and the process heat are minimized with the tools of the HEXA CUT® and T-REX series in such a way that delamination, fraying or fiber protrusions are reliably avoided. The components can thus be used without time-consuming post-processing.

For clean and precise machining of soft and medium-hard foam materials, such as those used inside rotor blades, Hufschmied offers the DFO tools of the Universal-Line. For machining hard foams, our Fiber-Line includes carbon cutters with a high stock removal rate. Whatever material you are machining, you will achieve the best results in roughing and finishing with Hufschmied Tools.

Robust structures – Hufschmied tools for the inner values

In addition to GRP for interior structures, aluminum and stranded aluminum are also used in the nacelles of wind turbines. We have developed special tools for cost-efficient, burr-free and high-quality machining of this material: The end mills and torus milling cutters of the CA402 series absorb retroactive forces through their special base material in such a way that no damage to the cutting edge or even tool breakage occurs. Requirements for component quality are met without any problems.

For friction stir welding of the lightweight material, Hufschmied offers high-performance welding pins. With these tools, absolute tightness can be achieved when joining aluminum and AI alloys.

Front Runner

178PW

Fibercracker Honeycomb

  • Highest surface quality due to the gearing types being matched to the preferred force direction of the Honeycombs
  • Long tool life due to microstructured cutting edges for high cutting accuracy
  • High feed rates guarantee resource-efficient processes, with uniform chips that are easy to extract
  • Low cutting pressure avoids contour distortion and enables cost-efficient setups
  • The production of 3D contours is also easily possible with these gear geometries
