Turnkey Solution for Automated Ti Compressor-Blade MRO

November 29, 2022

At Formnext…Optomec Inc. and Acme Mfg. announced a partnership to produce a fully automated workcell initially optimized for repairing aviation compressor blades made of titanium. The turnkey workcell, reportedly a first, is the product of a 2-yr. collaboration between the companies working with input from commercial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), and U.S. Dept. of Defense repair centers for aircraft engines.

The automated workcell features a repair capacity of 85,000 titanium compressor blades/yr. and provides a compelling ROI when compared to traditional CNC machines and manual gas-tungsten-arc welding. Technologies used in the automated workcell are commercially available today and have been certified by civil-aviation authorities worldwide, report officials from each company.
