Title (EN) TAPERED COMPOSITE WINDMILL TOWER, APPARATUS AND METHOD TO MANUFACTURE IT
(FR) TOUR D'ÉOLIENNE COMPOSITE EFFILÉE, APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR SA FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (10) and a method are provided for producing a tubular product from reinforced resin material. The apparatus includes a mandrel (12) comprising a series of endless conveyors (16) that are radially arranged about and radially displaceable with respect to the centerline (C) of the mandrel. The series of endless conveyors diverge from that centerline from a first end (42) to a second end (44) to the conveyors. A shifter mechanism (50) is provided to radially shift the series of endless conveyors toward or away from the centerline as required to produce the tapered tubular product.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil (10) et sur un procédé pour produire un produit tubulaire à partir d'un matériau en résine renforcé. L'appareil comprend un mandrin (12) comprenant une série de transporteurs sans fin (16) qui sont disposés radialement autour de la ligne centrale (C) du mandrin et qui peuvent être déplacés radialement par rapport à celle-ci. La série de transporteurs sans fin diverge de cette ligne centrale d'une première extrémité (42) à une seconde extrémité (44) vers les transporteurs. Un mécanisme de décalage (50) est disposé de façon à décaler radialement la série de transporteurs sans fin vers la ligne centrale ou de façon à les éloigner de celle-ci, selon les besoins, afin de produire le produit tubulaire effilé.
