Stay competitive and solve your technical challenges.
The solar and wind industry is under enormous pressure to reduce cost, raising performance, increasing reliability – all while reducing maintenance costs.
With igus® motion plastics products you achieve tech up & cost down for the photovoltaic industry. Strong UV radiation, heat, wind, dust: solar plants have to operate under extreme environmental conditions. igus® offers different and customised solutions that meet these exact requirements.
Their motion plastics impress with their long service life, freedom from maintenance and low costs. Application scenarios for dirt-resistant and lubrication-free plain and spherical bearings are, e.g. tracking systems, floating photovoltaic plants (floating PV) and cleaning systems.
Designed especially for wind turbine generators, our Quiet Running deep groove ball bearings significantly reduce noise levels and structural resonance. They are less sensitive to variable operating conditions, can increase bearing service life and extend relubrication intervals.For higher performance on the wind turbine we can provide you toroidal roller bearing, spherical roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearing and double-row tapered roller bearing.Furthermore, we can provide you the right Slewing bearings for the Wind Power Market. Our supplier is the world leader in the design and manufacture of slewing rings for wind turbines. They can supply from small onshore wind turbines of 20 kW to the latest generation of 15 MW offshore wind turbines.
Wind turbines must be very carefully lubricated as they operate at different speeds, under harsh conditions and in remote locations. Machines on a shopfloor can be routinely re-lubricated, manually if necessary, but this is not an option for wind turbines. For this reason, their lubrication needs must be remotely monitored and managed.
The solution is an automatic lubrication system. The result is optimized bearing service life over the long term, more turbine uptime and reduced manpower costs – all combining to help make wind farms more profitable. SKF Windlub systems deliver precise quantities of the appropriate lubricant, at the right time, to all rotating equipment.
Through our JAURE couplings, we offer the latest generation solutions for the Wind Industry. We offer the widest range of technologies available in the market. Highly reliable couplings that respond to the most demanding requirements during the entire lifetime of wind turbines, lowering its total COE. Windmill couplings typically include all components at the HSS such as torque limiters (JFTL), brake disc, spacers (electrically insulating available) and different types of connections to the shafts, offering a complete package to fit each specific wind turbine.
Oil is becoming scarce and oil spills cause huge damage to the environment and the natural world. In line with our sustainability philosophy, we support all efforts made in the field of renewable energies, supplying the manufacturers of solar and wind power systems with products from the DURBAL® Classic Line and DURBAL® Basic Line.
DURBAL® offers a special coating (called DURBAL COAT) which is used in particular on the rod ends for wind power plants or as well on solar panels. This corrosion protection ensures the long service life required by our customers. DURBAL® is therefore making an effective contribution towards ensuring that future generations are also able to enjoy sufficient energy resources.
Ewellix's extensive experience and knowledge of electromechanical solutions can satisfy the most demanding requirements. With the widest range on the market of linear actuators, control units and operating devices, EWELLIX® is the preferred partner to match your unique application needs for the solar energy. Electric linear actuators create stable, accurate back and forth movement. If the process involves pushing, pulling, lifting or sliding, a linear actuator can be a key part of the solution.The assembly of solar panels and solar power equipment makes use of a number of components including linear actuators. Some photovoltaics are designed to track sunlight and follow it to maximise the amount of energy being produced, therefore EWELLIX® actuators are required on such applications.
