Schmidt Couplings aid in the manufacture of wind turbine blades

Schmidt offset shaft couplings are used to drive the rubber pull rollers and heated laminating rollers that create a structural adhesive for the manufacture of pre-impregnated composite fibres. Commonly used in the manufacture of wind turbine blades, the advanced composite materials require the distance between the driven rollers  to be constantly adapted to the changing thickness of material substrate. This advantage is maintained as the rollers rotate and simultaneously allow the composite product to be gripped during operation. For further detals see Schmidt Coupling.
