Power Generation Equipment

WIND POWER· GAS TURBINE

Ahaus uses precision, design, and inspection to generate key gages, fixtures, and assembly devices for power generation industries. Consistent operations, new technology, and knowledgeable inspection techniques are keys to performing in this demanding industry.

Gas Turbine Components Machining and Inspection Equipment

For almost 50 years, Ahaus has been providing the fixtures and specialty machines to inspect, maintain and restore gas turbine blades to original  operating performance. Over this period, Ahaus engineers and technicians have developed an inside knowledge of the design criteria, datum schemes, tolerances, inspection techniques, and other parameters of gas turbine engine components. Our machinists and fabricators have gained the experience and expertise required to successfully address the issues related to high temperature steel alloys.

Examples of the types of equipment we have furnished to the gas turbine industry include:

  • Vane inspection fixtures
  • Row inspection fixtures
  • Blade inspection fixtures
  • Vane repair machines to restore vanes to original dimensional tolerances
  • Frequency blocks for blade testing
  • Lift assist equipment
  • Machining fixtures
  • Welding fixtures
  • Inspection gages

Wind Turbine Components and Assemblies

Recently, Ahaus has expanded into alternative or green energy by providing products to the wind power generation industry. These include critical tolerance machined parts, lift assist assemblies, shipping and handling assemblies along with assembly aid devices for many of the components and systems installed in the nacelle or shaft assembly of wind turbine generators.

“Again, thanks for the help to resolve this welding fixture issue. Everyone did a great job. Please pass along my thanks to everyone involved for their expertise and attention to detail. The quality design ideas and craftsmanship really stand out in the end result.”

Case Studies

It’s Our Mission: Customer Success

Sometimes a company comes to Ahaus with a specific production need and an idea of how to address it. In those cases, we work in tandem with that customer to resolve the manufacturing challenge. Other times, however, a manufacturer comes to Ahaus with nothing more than a need, giving Ahaus’ engineering staff both the challenge and the freedom to start with a blank sheet solution. From simple to complex, the results of these projects speak for themselves.
