A Semi-Automatic Sander from ENABL is an advanced robotic solution that performs sanding treatment of all types and sizes of wind turbine blades. The Sander performs flexible, fast and safe sanding of wind turbine blades.
The Semi-Automatic Sander has a small footprint due to its compact design. This makes it possible to maneuver easily in narrow spaces in between blades.
The actual sanding process is fully automatic, and the unit is able to detect the shape of the blade without pre-programming with the control of one operator.
Due to an integrated dust suction system, well-known issues with dust in the production facility are reduced to a minimum. As a result, the working environment is significantly improved. The unit is able to operate with all types of sanding materials.
Compared to manual sanding, a Semi-Automatic Sander performs the sanding process faster and more efficiently with a consistent finish.
By adding the Blade Cleaner to the Semi-Automatic Sander, you get sanding and cleaning of blades all in one fast process.
A system of brushes fixed to the sanding head ensures the surface is left clean. This feature reduces man-hours making it a faster working process.
Increased production capacity
Sanding and cleaning in one process
Improved health, safety and environment
“We completed two tests of the Semi-Automatic Sander with Blade Cleaner and the results were very satisfying. The sanding and cleaning processes in our blade production demand many man-hours. That’s why we need to improve and replace manual processes. With the Semi-Automatic Sander with Blade Cleaner, one operator can do both processes, hence the business case is good.”
