Modularity and High Precision
The 508TB, 518TB and 528TB machining centres have been specially developed for machining turbine blades. A range of scalable securing systems is available for manual or automatic mandrel clamping. The mobile slideway, which is equipped with a tailstock centre, a free rotating mandrel or an auxiliary divider, guarantees increased flexibility in the blade support. The free rotating mandrel exerts a slight pull on the workpiece to improve its vibrational behaviour and prevent unstable buckling. The mode in synchronisation with the auxiliary divider makes the workpiece/clamping unit assembly more rigid, thus reducing torsion on slim workpieces.
