Wind Energy

Measuring large wind turbine components
Leica Geosystems laser stations and industrial theodolites check parallelity and planarity of tower segments, laser trackers inspect of towers and rotor blades. Leica Geosystems is specialized in measuring large wind turbine components.
The wind of perfection
How much electricity can a turbine construction of more than 100 m height above the floor generate? And how can one make sure the assembly of any wind turbine runs smoothly when there’s only one chance? To make sure that the answer is not blowing in the wind, Vestas Nacelles in Lem/Denmark has a strict quality policy enabled by high-capacity portable measuring systems from Hexagon Metrology. more
Flexible laser tracker system facilitates the processing of large cast and steel components
At the DMR Produktionsgesellschaft mbH in Rostock there blows a fresh wind: previously, traditional measuring methods which were used had limitations; success is now guaranteed with the Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 and Leica T-Probe. Now when the component can‘t get to the CMM, the CMM will go to the component. more
Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 for inspection of large-volume wind energy components
In industry sectors where work pieces are large and heavy, mobility is everything for a measurement system. When accuracy and easy handling are the other functional requirements, there is no way around a portable CMM. Spanish machining company Lakber came to this conclusion and uses a high-end Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 and a Leica T-Probe. more
Laser Tracker opens door to new business areas
Entrepreneurial acting means setting the course for new business opportunities. In industrial companies, the success of such plans stands and falls with identifying the right equipment. That’s why Basque engineering company Ingemat added a Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 to their tools. more
Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 monitors cutting of wind turbine tripods
On behalf of a customer, Dutch company HGG developed a new type of bevel cutting system which has an integrated Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 with Absolute Interferometer. The tracker continuously monitors the cutting process. Using the measured data, the machine cuts 60 m long, 400 t tubes into individual sections – to accuracies of a fraction of a millimetre. more
Dimensional Integrity of Rotor Blade Hubs for Wind Turbines
Globally, wind power generation increased more than fivefold since the year 2000. With the global trend toward limiting CO2 emissions and numerous governmental programs subsidizing or financing wind power generation, its share of global power generation is set to experience substantial growth in the foreseeable future. more
Laser tracking boosts efficiency of wind power plants
Three-dimensional measurement and analysis of rotor blades and their production facility are highly complex and demanding measuring tasks. The nature and scope represent an entirely new dimension in this branch of industry. Consequently, such a task can be coped only by using ultra-modern measuring systems and a correctly prepared measurement strategy. An investigation of suitable measuring systems on the basis of the specific requirement profile for this measurement task indicated that the Leica Laser Tracker provides the best preconditions for successful measurements. more
