Discover Automated Polishing

AV&R Aerospace’s polishing systems polish large parts using adaptive technologies, force and inspection feedback according to the type of finishing being performed. They polish the blade’s foil, platform, and fillet and can also profile its leading and trailing edges.

Surface finish often being hard to obtain without removing too much material, the automation of that process is the best way to ensure its performance. AV&R Aerospace’s team has developed robotic systems that polish gas turbine’s blades, vanes, and fan blades ensuring the finish of the surface is neat and fits within your tight tolerances needs.
