Turbine days

Over 160 people attended the sixth edition of Starrag’s Turbine Technology Days, which showcased developments to further improve the efficiency of machining turbine blades, blisks and engine casings, including: a flexible manufacturing system featuring 11 Starrag NB 151 machines for automated blisk manufacture; a tool-changing angle head – a joint development with Benz – where a single head with HSK-B63 interface can replace the use of multiple angle heads; and the adaptive roughing of turbine blades, to eliminate ‘air cuts’, by using in-machine probing in conjunction with Starrag’s RCS programming routines.
