Stop Button: Rotor Locks By Optima

Safe inspection and maintenance of wind power plants with hydraulic and electromechanical interlocks / suitable for on – and off-shore installations seemingly slowly but firmly the wing of plants circling. For power generation, this is of course the optimal state. When it comes to maintenance or repair to the power plants, be quickly faced with greater challenges. Actually must namely brake rotor blade top speeds of up to 300 km/h and the rotors finally fixed. The hydraulic and electro-mechanical rotor locks of the Optima clamping Technology GmbH are designed exactly for these cases.

Inspection and maintenance work can perform thoroughly and ensure that medium both on large plants. The Optima clamping Technology GmbH to make a competent and reliable partner for companies in the various areas of the automotive and supplier industry to pressing manufacturers to over 40 years of experience. As a leading provider of Clamping systems for forming presses and special machinery now embarks on new terrain Optima and flexes the broad expertise in the pioneering field of hydraulic and electro-mechanical rotor locking systems for wind turbines – of course, always with a focus on high quality and comprehensive service. Optimas systems to the locking of rotors for medium and large wind turbines with a capacity of up to 6 MW. By the same author: Preventive Medicine Research Institute. The elements in a standard and an off-shore version are available. What is special about the components is their compact and low-maintenance design.

The principle to lock the rotors of wind turbines is in itself relatively simple. Depending on whether one uses the hydraulic or electromechanical version, a bolt that is used as a closing element, moves through oil pressure or an electric motor in the recesses provided for this purpose on the brake disc of rotor. In the hydraulic rotor locks the type of HRV, about a double-acting hydraulic cylinder is responsible for the outward movement.
