Automated Turbine Blade Inspection

Automated Turbine Blade Inspection

Turbine Blade Inspection is a challenging step in turbine blade manufacturing. Turbine blades are made of an advanced metal alloy to resist extreme conditions. Under normal operation, turbine blades must be able to resist high pressures, centrifugal forces and temperatures over 1,000°C. When turbine engines work at full power, the tip of the turbine blades can rotate at 1,600 km/h, exceeding the speed of sound....
