Full steam ahead at Starrag for Turbine Technology Days developments
Year on year, Starrag’s Turbine Technology Days never fail to impress – and the 2018 edition, the sixth in the annual series, was no exception as it 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 toolchanging angle head – a joint development with Benz – where a single head with HSK-B63 interface can replace the use of multiple angle heads; and
- Adaptive roughing of turbine blades, to eliminate ‘air cuts’, by using in-machine probing in conjunction with Starrag’s RCS programming routines.
Also previewed was Starrag’s new larger capacity NB 151 blisk machine – for components up to 600 mm diameter – as well as the ultra high-accuracy Bumotec s191 mill-turn centre that was demonstrated machining aero-engine fuel injectors.
