For the development of wind turbines, Röchling offers a broad range of composites and thermoplastics used onshore and offshore by renowned manufacturers worldwide.
With strong wind, blade tip speeds of up to 300 km/h and strong UV radiation, wind turbines are permanently exposed to high loads. Designers are faced with the question of how a turbine can be efficient, reliable and safe to operate even under heavy loads. The potential of wind energy is enormous, but only turbines in operation make money. High efficiencies and reduced downtimes are required.
Röchling Industrial offers a comprehensive range of composites and thermoplastics. The high-performance materials help to develop efficient and reliable systems. Röchling products are used worldwide by well-known manufacturers in the rotor blade, tower and nacelle, and as electrical insulation parts. The goal is always to provide the designer with the ideal material for the task at hand.
For example, pultruded spar caps made of carbon fibre-reinforced or glass fibre-reinforced Durostone® ensure high-performance rotor blades thanks to their strength and structure. Sliding pads made of tribologically optimised materials developed jointly with OEMs ensure a fast, precise alignment of the nacelle in the azimuth system. Durostone® trailing edge serrations support noise optimisation and efficiency thanks to their high mechanical strength and UV resistance. The range also includes machined components for drive wheels, connecting elements, cable mounts and labyrinth seals.
