Efficient new gripper solution reduces risk of crash at Vestas – increases capacity by 20%

A large number of high quality bolts and varying sizes play a crucial role in the wind turbine industry.
This applies not least at Vestas, where bolts are included all the way from the top to the bottom and i.a. helps to keep the wings spinning in all kinds of weather.
Bolts are thus central to ensuring solid fortification of the Danish group’s many wind turbines around the globe.

 

Increased efficiency

To reap more productivity gains and minimize risk, Vestas wanted to replace the tailor-made solution they have used to automate the lubrication of bolts at the production plant since 2016, with a modular, lighter and more efficient gripper solution that could accelerate production and increase capacity.
Vestas collaborates with Technicon, which is a nationwide dealer of a large selection of the most advanced in modular production technology for industrial companies..
