Seamless Rolled Rings For The Wind Power Industry
There are a lot of moving parts that make wind power a reality, which is the industry relies on seamless rolled rings. At Cliffe Metal Products, we manufacture a variety of seamless rolled rings for the wind power industry, helping companies everywhere create more sustainable energy.
Seamless Rolled Rings for Wind Power
The main shaft in a wind turbine has to withstand constantly changing conditions and axial and radial loads. Seamless rolled rings act as the main shaft bearing to help make sure this shaft can handle the load and the harsh conditions it has to withstand.
Finding a good bearing manufacturer is critical for wind turbines because these bearings must be precise for the best efficiency. Cliffe Metal Products manufactures precise bearings from materials that are designed to withstand the wear and tear of generating wind power.
Strength is a critical part of a wind turbine because all that wind can lead to a lot of stress on the tower. Fortunately, you can connect sections of that tower with flanges made from seamless rolled rings, which are known for their strength and durability. This is one of the most important functions of seamless rolled rings in the wind power industry.
We supply rings for gears that meet the strictest requirements, which means you get high-quality gears for wind turbines. Manufacturing these gears from specific grades of steel helps us ensure that every product is made to withstand the wear and tear of a wind turbine.
In order for a wind turbine to generate power, torque has to transfer between the gearbox and generator. This is made possible by couplings that are made from seamless rolled rings, which must be made from specific grades of steel like most parts of a wind turbine.
