Each system comprises two key stages in the forging process; pre-forming and final forming taking the product from the billet stage through to a fully finished compressor aerofoil.
The final formed aerofoil is placed into a clipping press by the M-710iC robot and then placed onto a conveyor where it travels through a soak tunnel.
One question was how to achieve the thin trailing edge needed on the aerofoils.
The blades of modern high-efficiency wind turbines are aerofoil sections.
Realising the impact of this trend and the increasing importance of these aerofoils to the efficiency levels and branding of their customers' fleets, Carrier Transicold searched for an existing system that would still meet these requirements whilst giving engineers safe access and a stable platform.
In an industry first, Carrier Transicold has developed a tilting cab roof aerofoil and working platform to help ensure that routine maintenance on truck-mounted refrigeration units can be carried out in the field quickly and cost-effectively without compromising engineer safety.
As illustrated, there is a good match between aerofoils geometries Fig 11a also shows that there is a good match on the computed and target surface pressure distribution.
SPA Aerofoils, which has 84 workers, secured six appointments, which included meetings with buyers from Greece, Sweden and Mexico, as well as other UK motorsport companies.
The new machine has a production capacity of around 500,000 aerofoils per working year.
To eliminate this tendency, Rotofinish Rossler have produced an abrasive which will not react chemically or otherwise on the surface of the aerofoils.
