Wicket gates in water turbines are a non-rotating yet adjustable radial grille of blades which controls the inflowing volume of water and can also cause it a swirl. The wider the opening, the faster the water flows and the higher the energy yield. The guide grille contributes towards keeping the speed, and therefore the output, of a turbine constant.
We have just the right metal cutting tools and processes for machining the blades of the guide grille and guaranteeing cost-efficient machining.
