Turbine disc machining

Inconel 718

Turbine discs are engine components manufactured from Titanium 64 or heat-resistant high-temperature alloys such as Inconel 718 and Udimet 720. These are complex workpieces with chambers and grooves that are rarely ideally accessible.

For this reason, our aerospace specialists develop individual machining solutions according to the shape of the component. Our focus is on ensuring that implementation of these solutions is cost-effective and reliable – which is where our cutting tools and processes can prove their worth. This enables you to carry out extremely cost-effective production, even under unfavourable conditions.
