Manufacturing process simulation and optimization for Wind Turbines

About this webinar
Wind energy is one of the main pillars when it comes to replacing conventional energy sources and generating sustainable energy. However, wind energy can only continue to grow if the costs of energy generation can be consistently minimized and the reliability of the system can be guaranteed.

To master the important interplay between costs, quality, and performance, the first step is to design and develop efficient and low-maintenance gearbox systems. And in addition to the CAE-supported engineering, the development of robust and resource-saving manufacturing processes for components and systems plays an essential role. Several different processes from primary forming (casting), metal forming, machining, welding and, increasingly, additive manufacturing are used in the wind turbine manufacturing processes.

This webinar is intended to show the common challenges in manufacturing various wind turbine components, and how those issues can be resolved with advanced manufacturing simulation and analysis. There will be a live demo at the end of the webinar.

Who should join?
This webinar is aimed at all specialists who are involved in the design and development of wind turbine components (main bearings, gearboxes, generators, mainframes, assembly systems, couplings) in close coordination with the suppliers or directly with those responsible for production and manufacturing specialists. We welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about how a simulation-based approach can help reduce the cost of manufacturing wind turbine components.
