Components need to be robust, reliable and capable of operating for long periods of time, often in harsh conditions. Global initiatives to address climate change have increased investment in renewable energy generation, leading to large growth in the alternative energy sector. Renishaw is helping to drive renewable energy development by reducing manufacturing lead times and helping to bring new components and technology to market. Wind turbines are produced in many sizes for various applications and their parts must be produced within tight machining tolerances to operate continually and produce energy efficiently.
Components such as bearings are essential to the movement of the turbine and the blades themselves can be difficult to manufacture correctly without a rigorous process control system owing to their potential size and complex geometry. Maintaining manufacturing accuracy with tightly controlled production, thanks to Renishaw's range of innovative solutions, helps ensure that these turbines operate at their full potential.
Solar panels made of photovoltaic cells are becoming increasingly popular for home owners as well as for grid power generation. These complex systems are made in a multi-step process, using position encoder systems to monitor the movement of a machine, or via an automated system like a robot arm, with the aim of ensuring the precise positioning of components within photovoltaic cells. Renishaw's Raman spectroscopy systems can then be used to analyse panels for any surface defects. Safety, reliability and efficiency are key drivers in energy production and as a result, system components such as safety valves and turbine blades require precision machining to the tightest tolerances.
Research is rapidly advancing the technologies used in renewable energy generation and storage.
Additive manufacturing also known as 3D printing supports the prototyping of new components with internal structures and designs that are not possible with traditional machining. Read the case study. Find out more. Machine tool probes are used for component set up, tool setting and in-cycle gauging as well as for first-off component inspection to enable accurate machining processes.
Position encoders ensure high accuracy movement control including interferometric laser encoders for long distances for turbine blade manufacture, or for tight spaces, for the manufacture of photovoltaic cells. Metal 3D printing using a range of metal powders to create strong but light, components, in forms impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing.
Being bilingual and having been raised by a German mother and an American father, I am often asked which country - Germany or the United States - I call home. The short answer is both, although friends accuse me of picking one or the other on an ad hoc basis "We Germans are very punctual," "You Germans have no sense of humor". If it were only so easy! Should the duration of my university studies bea any indication, I am really very German. After finishing an internship upon my arrival in Berlin in , I began connecting my academic background to this wonderful city and have been giving tours ever since.
Having grown up with a profound curiosity for what may lie beyond the borders of the United States, I made it my mission to go abroad once I finished my undergraduate degree. I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in History and Literature in before returning to complete a Masters M. Litt in Modernities in During the later course, which was based in the English Literature Department, I was exposed to a wide variety of disciplines, from art history and architecture to sociology and theatre.
I come from the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland, and have called Berlin my home since Modern History has been a long-term fascination for me. I live in Schoeneberg, one of Berlin's old cabaret quarters and a centre of the city's legendary decadence during the Weimar era. I can't wait to show you around this magical city. I first came to Berlin in on my way to somewhere else.
Von Marathon nach Athen 31.10.2010 - Jubiläums - Marathonlauf
My only expectation was to kill time for three or four days and then get out. I grew up in Dorset, which is very pretty but a little bit boring. After my studies, I lived in London and worked in universities. I first visited Berlin 10 years ago as an art student and have lived in Berlin on-and-off since I also spent time in Estonia.
My interest in Berlin's history started from watching the amazing scenes on the Berlin wall falling in as a child, and now enjoy continually learning about the different eras of Berlin's history. I live in Berlin since and have been leading tours for Berlin Walks dealing with Hitler's Germany and the history of the Third Reich for over 15 years. I came to Berlin 3 years ago on a research trip to gather information for my PhD. I was only meant to stay for two months, but ended up moving my life over here.
Longest business pitch marathon - English - RuhrSummit
And thanks to the wonders of the internet, my university was ok with the move. It really is unlike any other European capital.
After finishing studying I stayed in Edinburgh for three years working in a specialist ladies shoe and boot shop and am still able to measure a ladies calf on sight from up to ten paces away! I then went on to work in a Royal Scottish Palace. I originally came to Berlin on a backpacking trip through Europe after finishing my BA. The plan was to stay for the summer then go home and go study Law. Once the summer was over I found myself not wanting to leave because I had already fallen in love with the city.
I initially moved over to Berlin with the intension of only staying for a short period. I was hoping to learn some German, do a little bit of English teaching, and then make my way back to Scotland.
