Pontis Introduces Turnkey “Pre-Form” Moulding Solution

25 September 2012

Pontis has introduced a prefabricated laminate package designed to reduce in-mould cycle time.

Pontis will present this at HUSUM WindEnergy 2012. Through a unique process called “pre-forming,” Pontis says rotor blade manufacturers are enabled to reduce in-mould cycle times and increase output significantly. The solution is as simple as effective: availability of the main mould is increased by largely moving the rotor blade production process to sub-moulds. Stacked layers of glass are applied on separate tools. Pontis explains that these so called “pre-forms” come in handy modules which can easily be loaded into the main mould. Then the individual modules are smoothly joined, resulting in a rotor blade of the highest quality and durability.

Pontis Engineering Director, Dirk Jan Kootstra, says: “We are proud to introduce this full turnkey preform solution including all necessary advice, training and hardware to our international wind energy clientele and we are confident that this innovative approach will set a new standard for rotor blade manufacturing”.
