Typically, the production of gears for wind turbine applications is a task that requires high precision in all manufacturing steps. This is because once the turbine is deployed in the field, the charges associated with a malfunction (the downtime costs, as well as the price of the repairs) can reach staggering levels. As a result, the production of the gears must be optimized to ensure that their lifespan remains as long as possible. This means that every manufacturing step should be carefully monitored, in order to achieve the high reliability needed for continuous operation in harsh outdoor environments.
