Composite materials and tooling supplier Gurit (Zurich, Switzerland) announced on Sept. 29 that it has won its first contract for a wind turbine blade mold to be delivered to a customer in Europe from Gurit’s Red Maple tooling plant in Taicang, China. The European order is a result of Gurit’s global tooling strategy. The strategy was initiated following shipments of several well-received blade molds to European-controlled customers in China as well as the delivery of molds to two customers in India. Red Maple’s new production facility is designed for the manufacture of next-generation blade molds for wind turbines up to 7 MW. Red Maple is an independent, fully integrated and highly specialized moldmaker that emphasizes attractively priced, solid quality tooling equipment with very short lead times.
