Campbell Grinder Company produces several machines which manufacture high pressure turbine blades. The manufactured blades are used by several industry leaders in the gas turbine industry with great success. While blade fatigue is a major source of failure in gas turbines, Campbell Grinders limit manufacture error with their high precision and variable elimination.
Model 800 machines have proven to be very cost effective turbine blade grinders. These machines are generally equipped with quick change fixtures, wheels, and dressing tools. Each machine can grind a turbine blade with up to seven cuts in cycle times of less than eight minutes per part. The machines use VIT-CBN abrasive to minimize cost-per-part and improve part quality. Customers report that these highly stable machines have run for days on end without the need for an operator to change any offsets.
