SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED! THE BIGGEST PLATE ROLL FOR WIND TOWERS EVER BUILT IN THE WORLD

After the first test held at DAVI premises, it has been recently installed the biggest plate roll DAVI for the manufacturing of OFF SHORE WIND TOWERS in Northern Europe.

It is a plate roll with capacity 3600 x 125 mm (12' x 5”) in cold, that will be used to build the foundations of wind towers installed OFFSHORE. The production foresees the construction of mono-pole with length up to 64 meters (210ft) and diameters up to 5 meters (16ft) with high thickness in high resistance steel. In this way it is possible to install air-generators of 3,6 MW to more.

The end user is one of the largest wind tower manufacturer (onshore and offshore) and this machine is the third one this customer bought from DAVI, after the first two plate rolls, which he declared himself extremely satisfied of.

The final testing after installation was successfully accomplished.
The machine showed from the beginning its capacity: rolling of considerable thickness with an extremely satisfying prebending (very small flat end) and reduced cycle time.

This machine is the biggest one currently in operation for the manufacturing of OFFSHORE wind towers, industry where the trend is using plates with thickness continuously increasing according to the size of new turbine generators. DAVI four-rolls bending machine is the right choice to achieve high productivity, having a quality of the final shell so high to not require further process that could affect negatively the productivity, thing that can easily happen on a 3 roll machine.

Once again DAVI customers have chosen quality buying a DAVI machine.
