Introduction

The rotor of the LAGERWEY 18/80 (LW 18/80) is provided with two blades and is characterised by the flexible (hinged) way of mounting the blades and the passive blade-angle adjustment. The possibility that the blades can hinge over a small angle has the advantage that the load on the construction in its entirety will be less. This way of mounting the blades is similar to the tittering hub construction but has the advantage that the blades can hinge independently. This allows a lighter construction.
