Robotic Profiling on MRO Parts
Based on its expertise in robotic profiling, AV&R Aerospace’s team has implemented its solution to the Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) market. Its adapted systems re-profile blades according to the original part design. Reaching a tolerance of ± 37.5 microns (± 1.5 thousandths of an inch), its innovative systems are a breakthrough in the MRO engine refurbishing industry.
The automated systems created by AV&R Aerospace answer the needs of the MRO factories by recreating high precision elliptical profiles on used blades and vanes as if they were new without removing parent material. In order to obtain such tight tolerances, AV&R Aerospace’s team developed adaptive and closed-loop capabilities, coupled with final leading and trailing edge inspection.
With these capabilities, AV&R Aerospace’s robotic profiling systems are the right choice to create leading and trailing edge shapes to repair parts during their service life (MRO). They have been proven to re-profile vanes, HPT & LPT, and fan blades.
Automated Re-profiling Benefits
From a business perspective, replacing manual profiling by precise robotic systems:
- Improves quality and consistency of your production by eliminating human subjectivity
- Reduces scrapped parts since it does not remove parent material
- Reduces abrasive consumption
- Reduces workers’ injuries
- Leading and trailing edge re-profiling
- Foil, platform, and fillet polishing
- Weld blending
- Chord length feedback
- Final edge profile feedback
Knowing that fuel consumption is critical, rework on jet engines is a major issue. With precise automated systems, your clients will be pleased by your production. Do not wait for your competitors to automate their production before you: contact AV&R Aerospace today!
