Turbine blades are exposed to extreme thermal and physical loads: A turbine blade at full load can reach speeds of up to 500 m/s. This corresponds to a centripetal acceleration of 160,000 m/s2 with centrifugal forces of around 550 tonnes.
Only difficult-to-cut materials such as Inconel or similar high-temperature alloys are capable of withstanding such forces. Complex blade profiles are an additional challenge. Our consistent tool solutions ensure that your tool change and chip-to-chip times can be reduced to a minimum while still maintaining extremely high quality
