Mechanical deburring and blunting of blade edges

SE Ivchenko-Progress has adopted the technology of mechanical deburring and edge-blunting. The technology affords the possibility to debur and blunt the airfoil edges of gas turbine engine rotor blades from Ti and heat-proof alloys by means of an OSBORN abrasive brush after finishing. Deburring with the brush will become 5-time […]

Blade fabrication technique from ring forgings

Mastering the technique of making blades from ring forgings reduced significantly equipment design and manufacturing costs compared to blades from single blanks. Blade roots were formed on the Weiler E150 turn-mill center in a ring which was then erosion-cutted into separated blade blanks and machined on the Starrag milling machine. […]
