Blisks are single engine components where the hub and blades are machined from a solid piece of material. On the cold compressor side of the turbine, Blisks are made of titanium, while the hot, combustion side requires heat resistant super alloys.
Key factors to success are:
- 5-axes machine with good simultaneous dynamics
- Turbo 5 axes CAM software
- Optimized tools and process knowledge for HRSA and titanium
