CNC / ManufacturingManufacturing at the highest level
Realizing hydropower with precision
In the course of ongoing modernization measures, the innovative engineer Wilfried Geppert took a big step forward in the mid-1980s which propelled the company forward into the CNC age. The use of CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) machine tools has created the conditions required for the dimensionally accurate, precise manufacture of impellers.
Design data for highly stressed hydraulic surfaces are transferred to the CNC processing machines via CAM programs. All our hydraulic components are optimized for maximum efficiency by means of numerical flow analysis, and this efficiency has been confirmed in model tests and via thermodynamic efficiency measurements in the plant itself. We check both existing plants and the finished product with impeller diameters of up to 3 m for their dimensional accuracy down to a hundredth of a millimetre using state-of-the-art measuring technology.
The client’s requirements and satisfaction are our primary focus.
We are proud of our domestic engineering skills, and as a turbine manufacturer we now supply countries all over the world with innovative and customized power plant solutions featuring a wide variety of turbines, all manufactured by Austrian specialists in hydropower.
