FENN Equipment and the Renewable Energy Industry

 

From the copper strips used in wind turbines to the lithium strips in rechargeable batteries to the zirconium rods in nuclear cells, Fenn machinery continues to play a crucial role in the renewable energy industry. For well over 100 years, we have been engineering custom metal-forming equipment to ensure that manufacturers in the renewable energy industry have access to the high-quality materials they need to be successful and improve the environment.

Our experts meticulously design and build state-of-the-art machinery to fit our clients’ exact needs and specifications. We have had the privilege of working with a variety of companies in the renewable energy industry to fulfill applications relevant to: solar, wind, superconducting, hydro, nuclear, batter power cells, and transformer/motor wire.

In renewable energy plants across the world, our rolling mills, drawbenches, swagers, and wire flattening and shaping lines can be seen increasing production and improving the quality of the materials produced.

Fenn has worked with a variety of companies in the renewable energy industry to fulfill applications relevant to:

  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Superconducting
  • Hydro
  • Nuclear

By providing hot and cold rolling of both non-ferrous and ferrous wires or strips, our rolling mills play an important role in the renewable energy industry. Our rolling mills have been used to produce:

  • Lithium strips for rechargeable batteries
  • Lead strips for automotive and storage batteries
  • Nickel substrate strips for alkaline batteries
We have custom built a wide variety of drawbenches for the renewable energy industry that specialize in straight length die-drawing of round tubes, wires, or rods. In the renewable energy industry, the product of our drawbenches can be seen in:

  • Zirconium rods and shapes for nuclear cells
  • Super conducting materials for MRI machines, motors and capacitors
Swagers offer the renewable energy industry a cost-effective way to form various metal parts from tubes, wires, or rods. The process used by our swagers is not only low in cost, but it improves the strength and grain structure of the final product. Some examples in the renewable energy industry include:

  • Zirconium rods for nuclear applications
  • Superconducting materials
  • Cartridge heaters used in nuclear energy
Our wire flattening and shaping lines are known worldwide for their reliability, precision, and versatility, which make them a valuable asset to the renewable energy industry. Every one of our wire flattening and shaping lines is created to meet the specific requirements of our client, and they can be used with both ferrous and non-ferrous materials. In the renewable energy industry, the work of our wire flattening and shaping lines can be seen in:

  • Copper strip used in wind turbine generators
  • Photovoltaic applications
  • Power transformers
