Free On-line course: Optical measurements and measurement systems for gears and rotary axes.


Arranged by VTT in Teams. 1st March 2023.


The mechanical components of Wind Energy Systems (WES) are exposed to high loads transmitted to the drivetrain’s components. This often results in tight manufacturing tolerances related to their size and mass. Reliable verification of manufacturing tolerances through accurate measurements is a critical part of quality assurance. This training course is targeted at industry personnel, and it will describe the capabilities of various optical measurement systems as well as calibration strategies of rotary axes. These procedures may also be transferred to other industrial parts.


The agenda is below





The course is an output of the project 19ENG07 Met4Wind (Metrology for enhanced reliability and efficiency of wind energy systems) which is a European Research project within the EMPIR programme co-financed by the Participating States and from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
