Wind power

Industry profile

As a clean and renewable energy without public hazards, wind power is gaining more and more attention from the countries throughout the world.
Wind power is clean, renewable and environmentally beneficial with a short period for its infrastructure building and a flexible installation scale. It is essential for promoting the development of renewable energy, the advancement of energy technology and industrial upgrading, which is also important for pushing ahead the adjustment of energy structure. The new-energy based power generation industry in China including wind power has a broad prospect for development and is expected to keep growing at a high speed in a long run.

Products application

The principle of wind power generation is using wind power to drive the windmill blades to rotate, then through the growth machine to increase the speed of rotation and make the generator to produce electricity. As a new type of mechanical part emerging around the world, slewing bearing, with inner and outer rings, rolling bodies, etc. as its parts, is one of the important structures of a wind generator. Bearing steel balls, as a rolling element, are used in the yaw bearing of a wind generator, and the large slewing bearing of a pitch system bearing.
Steel ingots are applied to forge pieces of a wind generator, such as large-scale base flanges, transmission main shafts and yaw gear rings. And by taking advantages of molten iron hot charging process and adding rare elements, the performance of forge pieces is improved.
