Aero Engine Components

Precision is paramount when it comes to machining engines for the aerospace industry.

Increased fuel economy necessitates the adoption of novel and complex materials to accept increasing fuel-burn temperatures in the hot sector of jet engines.

 

Weight is the primary motivator in the cold segment.

 

Customers want suppliers to reduce costs and make compromises, while production automation for complicated parts raises the requirement for simplified manufacturing procedures.

Add to that the reality that when experienced workers retire, and new talent leaves the manufacturing business, the resultant skills gap complicates hiring and raises the demand for automated, unattended production.

Fan Blades, Blisks, Impellars, and Combustion Casings

Aerospace fan blades are made of a variety of materials, including titanium, Carbon-fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP), and aluminium. Blisks, impellars, and combustion casings are made of heat-resistant super alloys (HRSA).

The QuickGrind Eliminator, Taper Ballnose, and/or Mirage Super lines of tools are uniquely suited for the precise needs on these challenging materials and parts.

Infinite Possibilities

Quickgrind infinite possibilities

 

Without the limitation of catalogues the possibilities are infinite

 

Don’t limit yourself to standard ranges. Instead, choose solution-based tooling, that gives you the right tool, for the right job, at the right price. With the marginal cost increase more than covered by improved production throughput and efficiency.

Ordering is as easy as one, two, three…

All our tools can be designed specifically for your application and are available in virtually any size, diameter, radius, neck relief, coating or reach. Many are available with chip-breaker, through-coolant and other options.
