Our novel adapter for the clamping of turbine blades, based on our technique using discs, acts as a mould around the spiralling surface of the turbine blade.
This yields a very stiff and precise clamping without damage to the surface of the blade.
Installed on a precision vice or chuck, it allows a simple on/off clamping of the turbine blades.
The adapters are tailored to the type of blade and feature:
Adapter for the clamping of turbine blades and similar. These adapters are used for example to centre and clamp turbine blades for the machining of their fir-tree feet.
The example shown features a 120 mm high blade
If desired, we can also deliver the adapter with an additional centering vice (as shown) or a centering chuck.
