Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 monitors cutting of wind turbine tripods

Case Study HGG Profiling Equipment BV
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.
Many 3D cutting jobs worldwide are done through HGG machinery. Founded in 1984, HGG is the world’s only company fully devoted to steel profile cutting providing both tailor made machinery and knowledge to the highest standards. The machines are sold worldwide to leading companies in the offshore, steel construction, process piping, shipbuilding and other industries. HGG profiling machines provide quality cutting according to latest norms (ISO 9013), easy operating & programming and industry specific customization. They are built to last.

HGG manufactures bevel cutting machines that are particularly suitable for processing large components. “We like challenges,” says Peter Tool, R&D manager at HGG. “Our greatest strength is that we design our systems and software from the bottom up – so we retain flexibility. Short channels of communication allow us to come up with completely new processes in very little time,” adds Tool.
