Demand for increasingly complex turbine blades, including airfoil, root geometries, and shaped cooling holes with tighter tolerances and accuracies, has risen due to improved engine performance levels and efficiencies required in the new generation of aero-engines and land-based gas turbine engines. Our 3D Metrology services use advanced 3D scanning and measurement technologies to inspect both straight and shaped cooling holes, leading edge surface roughness, blade root geometry, airfoil characteristics and for detection of surface defects to improve blade performance. Examples of these inspection and measurement tasks are shown in more detail on our 3D Metrology Services – Aerospace – Turbine Blade Inspection page.
EDM Intelligent Solutions is proud to offer our Stand Alone Automated Measurement (SAAM) and MVi5 3D Metrology Center for turbine blade inspection and measurement applications that require the highest level of inspection detail, all while maintaining an ease of use that allows everyone on your production floor to operate it safely and efficiently. The streamlined human-machine interface allows your operators, managers, and engineers access to quick and repeatable measurements. This creates a package that allows the inspection task to be brought straight out to the production floor, creating more efficiency for your overall operations.
