Emuge Corp. has introduced an extensive line up of tools optimized specifically for the production of wind turbine components. Continuous technology advancements in components and materials demand high quality tooling for the most efficient and cost-effective machining of parts used in today’s wind turbines. Emuge’s new Wind Power program offers a complete solution for precise, affordable machining of wind turbine parts.
For the production of top quality internal and external threads, Emuge’s new program provides taps up to 114 mm (4 ½”), roll form taps up to 51 mm (2”), and thread mills up to 102 mm (4”). These tools are designed for all thread sizes—with a special focus on large and deep threading—and every material used in the manufacture of wind turbines. Also included in the new line are the highest quality tap and workpiece holders, available from stock or custom engineered for wind turbine applications. Gaging tools are also available for quick and reliable process control.
The new Wind Power program also offers a wide range of both solid carbide and high-speed steel milling cutters, milling tools with indexable inserts, and other milling accessories. The program includes end mills, slot drills, die-sinking cutters, shell end mills, and gear cutters, in addition to the most complex profile milling tools.
“The wind power industry is currently undergoing a period of rapid growth,” says Peter Matysiak, president. “Constant improvements in component and material technology makes it challenging for suppliers to keep up. Emuge is committed to meet this challenge and to providing tools that are precision-manufactured for optimum performance, durability, and tool life for manufacturers in this growing market.”
Emuge Corp. is a subsidiary of the 1,000-plus employee German company Emuge-Werk Richard Glimpel KG that has been the product technology and performance leader in their field for more than 90 years. The company manufactures an extensive line of taps, end mills, thread mills, holders, and attachments, with 100,000 items sold through distributors worldwide. Emuge also offers end-user technical support through a network of field engineers with extensive tooling experience.
More than 10,000 types of cutting tools and accessories are stocked in the company’s new North American headquarters. The 21,000 square foot state of the art facility, custom-designed and built in 2005, also serves as a technology center, offered to the industry as a resource for machining process development. Milling, thread cutting, and workholding seminars will also be conducted at the technology center. For more seminar information visit www.emuge.com.
