Program Turbine Blades and Mill Them Reliably and Effectively
The Blade package
5-axis CAM software: The Blade package from OPEN MIND provides optimized milling strategies for complete machining.
The Blade package provides automation features to generate simple machining definitions and incredibly short programming times. This includes the rolling ball function for milling transition radii, the best fit function for automatically setting the optimal start position for the finishing cycle and the automatic lead angle correction function for collision avoidance of the tool face with concave surfaces.
5-axis Machining: Turbine Blade
This video shows a machining example of a turbine blade on a GROB G550 machine programmed with hyperMILL®.
5-axis Machining: Aluminium Turbine Blade
This video shows the machining process of an aluminum single blade made on a Grob G352 using Mitsubishi cutting tools and has been programmed with hyperMILL®. The final blade geometry was made segmentally using barrel cutters. This ensures high blade stability when roughing and finishing. For efficient root machining hyperMILL® offers proven CAM strategies from 2.5D to 5‑axis.
Machine: Grob G352
Cutting Tools: Mitsubishi Materials
5-axis Machining: Blade Segment Example
This video shows a blade segment made of NAK80 machined on a Mazak Variaxis C-600 using Seco Tools. For finishing barrel cutters and hyperMILL®MAXX Machining strategies have been used to save machining times.
