Aircraft Engine Manufacturing
Precision in key in the manufacturing of aircraft engines and Phoenix’s industry leading rigidity and repeatability specifications can handle your requirements. And building on our years of experience we can provide exactly what you need, no more and no less.
Regardless of the material, Inconel, Rene’, Titanium, or new composites, the round fragile cases surrounding the different sections of the engine can be machined by Phoenix. The machining requirements for these components include shallow I.D and O.D. turning as well as facing on both ends. Phoenix’s Vertical Turning Centers and Vertical Milling Centers are ideal for the turning and milling operations on large diameter commercial engine components.
Blades and Vanes
The airfoils of turbine blades up to 16” wide and 72” long have been machined four at a time using Phoenix multi spindle Airfoil Milling Machines. On the other end of the spectrum, Phoenix deigned small “lean friendly” four axis lathes to turn the ends of nozzles measuring less than .375” in diameter.
The center disks which hold the vanes and blades must be completely machined. Phoenix’s Vertical Turning Centers can do the majority of this. The dovetails slots holding the vanes or blades, are machined using the Phoenix Horizontal Broaching Center with its up to 4 cutting rows and 380” travel.
