Areas of expertise: Forged blades
Cooperation date: August, 2017
Status: Airfoil and root inspection
Number of Nextec system: Dozens
Our company was able to easily integrate into the production process of BTL and covered most of all measurement needs of this company. We continue to cooperate further and support all the needs of the company, including the technical and application part. We continue to monitor the measurement accuracy of our machines at the customer’s site, including annual ISO calibration.
What we did
In BTL, Nextec systems use the datums of the blade itself to build the alignment of the coordinate system, thus there is no need of the use of special holders when measuring the blade, just several universal holders being used depending on the size and shape of the root of the blade.
With the help of our CMM, BTL engineers are now able to measure almost all the dimensions in the drawing, which means that once integrated, our system offer the posibility of reduced expenses of holders for each blade, and the maintenance of other measuring machines.
Our ultimate goal is to reach comprehensive measurement in the company with our machines, including blades after chip processing and root.
