Shear-Web Aligning & Clamping System (SWAC)

The Gurit PH Automation Shear Web Alignment and Clamping System (SWAC) guides the insertion of a Shear Web partition into the shell of a wind turbine blade with great precision and holds it in a predetermined position during the cure cycle.

Compared with a manual procedure the system allows manufacturers to lower labour costs, increase production speeds and improve product quality by achieving superior precision in terms of fit tolerance, resulting in lower manufacturing defects.

The Shear Web Alignment and Clamping System is available as a standalone unit or fully integrated with the Gurit PH Automation Mould Turning Systems.
