Wafangdian Bearing Group Corporation (ZWZ) is one of the largest bearing companies in China. Romax’s client is the wind turbine department of ZWZ National Large Bearing Engineering Research Center, focusing on pitch and yaw bearings and main bearing development.
ZWZ was dedicated to developing high-end products and has a strong demand to supply pitch bearings to one of the world’s leading wind turbine OEMs. The OEM’s strict requirement was solving the challenge of digital design verification, as currently the testing is limited for this kind of large bearing.
As the world’s number one independent bearing expert, Romax has reviewed the pitch bearing design using advanced CAE methods and used its unique experience to make key performance improvement recommendations in less than 2 months. ZWZ has been able to successfully verify the pitch bearing product with many of digital calculations to ensure it fully meets the OEM’s requirements.
