The High Throughput and Accuracy Measurement Solution for Aerospace Compressor Blade Manufacturers
Achieve between two and five times the measurement throughput compared to tactile scanning with the GLOBAL S HTA measurement solution for aeroengine blades, via the combination of a high-accuracy non-contact laser, 4-axis simultaneous motion controller and optimised data acquisition methods with high precision.
Today’s aerospace market is faced with increasing demands to launch multiple engines with higher performance and greater fuel efficiency. Current measurement methods used to control the manufacturing process and validate finished blades can cause bottlenecks and delay output of these new engines. The GLOBAL S HTA is a specialised hardware and software solution that answers the needs of jet engine manufacturers seeking measurement technologies that provide step change improvement in measurement throughput, while providing richer measurement data.
The GLOBAL S HTA solution combines speed with the accuracy expected from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence when performing blade inspection. This solution is based on the advanced HP-O Multi optical sensor technology, which places high-speed measurement of aero- and land-based turbine blades in a shop-floor environment.
