Since the 1990s, wind power production has been in constant development. Modern turbines sporting longer blades require the construction of taller and stronger towers, onshore and offshore.
From the beginning, Faccin has been a reference point for the rolling equipment needed to build wind towers, and through years of experience - and working with its customers - it has developed specific solutions for this task. It defined the ideal plate rolls for wind tower production, highlighting the essential qualities they must have:
Rolling hundreds of cans a month is easier with the Faccin Wind Tower Package. It comprises an automatic feeding table with automatic alignment of the conical shape, a tiltable top support specially designed for supporting cones and side supports with a clamping system for the fast alignment of the plate edges for welding.
The advanced PGS-Ultra CNC is supplied with an iPad management application that can be used by managers to monitor productivity and machine status, and to check capacities and production cost evaluation.
Faccin is continually chosen by leading wind tower manufacturers. It offers added value with its broad expertise in the wind tower business, including consultancy on layouts, training carried out by operators specialised in rolling wind towers, fast service and high spare-parts availability.
The company is proud to produce machines that contribute to green energy production. It believes in the future of the wind tower business, onshore and offshore. In the offshore business, the use of plate rolls is particularly important, and, in this sector, Faccin has already supplied main players in Europe, the US and Asia.
