Wicket gates in water turbines are a non-rotating yet adjustable radial grill of blades which controls the inflowing volume of water and can also cause it to swirl. The wider the opening, the faster the water flows and the higher the energy yield. The guide grill 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 grill and guaranteeing cost-efficient machining.
