Wind turbine rotor blade manufacturing involves incessant grinding passes that create large quantities of particulate and require innovative dust control solutions.
Rotor blades usually range between 30 and 60 meters long. Made by layering thousands of thin filaments impregnated with epoxy resin, the rotor blades have to be reduced to the proper dimensions and prepared to accept the next layer of material via grinding, often on a daily basis.
Each typical grinding pass can discharge up to one kilo of dust. . . Continue reading
The final stages of aerospace prototyping for commercial and defense products requires hundreds of hours devoted to structural testing and validation — all of which have to be accomplished with a sense of urgency if deadlines are to be met. During this high-pressure period, systems are assembled, tested, and adjusted to ensure functionality and abide by strict Federal Aviation and Administration (FAA) policies.
For practical reasons, these processe. . . Continue reading
Isocyanates are a family of highly reactive, low molecular weight chemicals. Usually they are used when manufacturing flexible and rigid foams, fibers, paints and varnishes and elastomers. Isocyanates are found increasingly in the automobile industry as well as auto body repair and building insulation materials. Spray-on products used in retail, commercial or industrial settings often contain isocyanates that are used to protect cement, wood, fibreglass, aluminum and steel. These protective coatings are f. . . Continue reading
