Mirage's unique machining range is now utilised across the wind power industry for the production of both towers and rotor blades, providing a solution to decrease machining time for tower flanges and blade root ends, while improving machined quality.
Developed for Europe's largest wind turbine manufacturer, our machine enables facing of the blade root end mounting flange to within 0.10mm (0.004") and tower mating flanges a tolerance of 0.10mm - 0.20mm (dependent on diameter), with a total machining time of less than an hour.
