Vacuum Technology for Rotor Blade Production
Rotor blade production requires safe, gentle and precise handling of preforms, pre-pregs, composites and finished rotor blades. Vacuum technology from Schmalz is used to gently demold components or transport them safely between processing stations.
Suction cups that are mounted on gimbals and spring-mounted allow the vacuum technology to be flexibly adapted to the shape of the components. Redundant systems, large vacuum reservoirs and additional mechanical safeguards provide maximum safety during handling of rotor blades that weigh several tons and are up to 85 meters long, as well as their components. Schmalz’ extensive range of suction cups offers the right solution for any application.
