Profiling

Robotic Profiling at Its Best

AV&R Energy has developed an expertise in automated profiling. Its systems create high precision elliptical profiles on blades according to the engineers’ design. These 6 axis systems integrate adaptive and closed-loop capabilities coupled with final leading and trailing edges profile inspection to reach a ± 37.5 micron tolerance (± 1.5 thousandth of an inch).

May it be for industrial gas turbines’ compressor blades or fan blades, AV&R Energy’s robotic systems reach a precision unattained by other automation companies. This precision level was acquired by AV&R Energy’s sister, AV&R Aerospace, since the precision is critical for its clients when manufacturing jet engines.

High Precision Robotic Profiling Benefits

When you automate your profiling operations in your plant, you:

  • Improve quality and consistency of your production
  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce abrasive consumption (up to 75%) and therefore its cost
  • Improve ergonomics and safety

Main Technologies

  • Leading and trailing edge profiling
  • Foil, platform, and fillet polishing
  • Chord length feedback
  • Final edge profile feedback
AV&R Energy’s automated profiling system won the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ 2012 “Innovations That Could Change the Way You Manufacture Award”.
