Turbine disc

​​​​​​​​​​​

Aerospace turbines must withstand extreme temperatures and pressure differences. They are therefore made of advanced material, such as nickel based super alloys (e.g. Inconel 718, Waspalloy and Udimet 720)

Nickel based super alloys are excellent for their high temperature and stress resistance properties. It is important to apply best practice strategies as these materials are demanding to machine.

A complete package of standard tools together with uniquely productive solutions is readily available to deliver stable machining to any turbine disc feature.

 

 


Productive seal fin machining

Seal fins, air seals or labyrinth seals as they are also called, are key features for the functionality of gas turbine engines and are commonly found on turbine wheels.

For productive seal fin machining we recommend:

  • Scoop Turning
  • Trochoidal turning​

​​

Trochoidal turning method

By choosing trochoidal turning over the more traditional ramping method, productivity can be doubled with improved security and tool life.​

Trochoidal turning uses the front edge line and continuously changes the contact point between insert and material.​

 

​​

Scoop Turning

Patented strategy where the tool enters the feature material from both sides delivering chip control and more accurate geometrical sizing.

  • Full chip control
  • Reduced cycle time
  • Good surface quality
  • Robust process


Grade GC1105 – designed for the challenge of super alloy machining

GC1105 provides secure and reliable quality machining, even flank wear and a truly versatile solution for all application areas.

  • Reliability in intermediate stage machining through superior notch wear resistance in combination with good edge line toughness.
  • ​Guaranteed accurate high quality performance in last stage machining provided by our razor sharp, ground inserts and our state of the art thin coating, with excellent adhesion.

The modular SL70 tooling system for seal fin turning

Due to tough material, accessibility and productivity, round inserts offer the best method and are used in both roughing and finishing.

  • CoroTurn SL70 blades are designed to fit the typical profiling and pocketing features
  • The oval coupling offers excellent stability and accessibility
  • All radial and axial clearance requirements are covered in a compact program
  • Multi-task and vertical turning lathe requirements are met with Coromant Capto size C5, C6 and C8
  • Carbide RCMT and CoroCut grades have high pressure coolant as standard
