Cannon Afros, a company of Cannon Group, has developed a new direct infusion system for processing of epoxy and polyurethane (PU) resin systems for the manufacturing of wind turbine rotor blades.
Cannon’s new direct infusion system leverages their DX and DXI series of resin mixing machine technology with real-time data management which automatically adapts dosing to ensure the required flow rate at constant mix ratio. The system allows for several independent pressurised infusion lines along which peristaltic valves control, the right amount of resin mix at the optimum pressure at each infusion gate. Since the new process is closed and sealed, there is a much lower exothermic risk during curing and no exposure to air and humidity to contaminate the resin systems.
