Press release date: March 25, 2014

Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany – ENERCON has opened its first flow production line for rotor blades in Aurich, Germany. Transportation was implemented on the basis of RoundTrack® technology from the intra-logistics specialist STROTHMANN Machines & Handling. RoundTracks® enable precise positioning without posing a barrier for forklift trucks and thereby prevailed over standard rails and chain conveyors. ENERCON constructed mobile production platforms that transport two rotor blade halves each. STROTHMANN carried out the measurements, precise adjustment, and installation of the more than two kilometer long rail system, and supplied the wheel sets which are also components of the RoundTrack® trolleys designed by the automation company. ENERCON implemented the drive solution as well as hydraulic crossover mechanisms that enable the platforms to circulate through the factory.
