LX 021

Turbine Blade machining center

The LX series was specifically designed for the high-precision, efficient five-axis machining of turbine blades. This ultra-modern machining platform is the result of decades of experience in the development of machine tools, CAM systems and special tools combined with our in-house expertise in the prototype and series production of turbine blades.

Key benefits

A comprehensive integrated solution from one source – from the machining system via the specially developed CAM system through to the integration of process monitoring systems

Machining of all types of blade with one jig thanks to an innovative and flexible fixture concept

The optimisation of unit costs for ready-to-install blades thanks to an integral Machining concept for pre and postprocessing in a clamping position

The highest levels of process reliability and efficiency, thanks to individual application-orientated technology services
