Specialized tool for turbine blade machining such as root forms and christmas tree shaped carbide end mill and new MEGACOAT NANO achieve long tool life and high efficiency machining.
- Achieve significant machining time reduction compare to conventional high-speed steel tools
- Extend tool life by MEGACOAT NANO coating
Your innovative partner
We aim at improving the competitiveness of our customers by reducing the unit costs in the cutting processes. KYOCERA UNIMERCO does not just deliver tools. Our tooling technicians have in-depth knowledge of power generation applications and each problem is analysed thoroughly to come up with the best possible solution for you. In cooperation with you, we design the ideal solution for your specific application.
The tools are manufactured on advanced machinery in our four manufacturing locations. After delivery, we assist you, if necessary, with the implementation of the tooling solution to make sure that everything runs smoothly and you benefit from the optimum tool performance.
A result of our extensive research and development activities is high performance tooling solutions for turbine blade manufacturing reducing machining time considerably. Instead of using HSS tools in a traditional process you can use a high performance tooling solution to achieve narrow tolerances much faster.
Fewer tools needed
In most cases, using this approach, the actual number of tools needed for manufacturing a turbine blade can be reduced. In some cases, the number of tools has been reduced by 30%. Of course your advantages are lower tooling costs, shorter cycle time and thereby higher productivity.
With the optimised tooling package, you will achieve excellent surface finish results.
Longer tool life
The use of high performance coated carbide tools results in longer tool life. Your benefits are less machine down time, as there are fewer tool changes, and a reduction in the number of internal measurements needed.
Intelligent tooling solutions
Solid carbide tools are continuously updated to meet the increased market demands and to make sure that you get a solution which ensures the most competitive manufacturing process.
We know that producing turbine blades requires very narrow tolerances. In order to give you the best possible tool quality, we offer to measure each individual tool and document the findings in a measuring report. This is our way of documenting that the tools are manufactured according to your requirements, and that they are instantly ready to use – simply plug & play.
To avoid problems during transport, all tools for turbine blade production are delivered in secure plastic or wooden boxes. For tools with larger diameters, a measuring report as well as a scan of the tool profile will be included in the tool box in order to avoid tools being mixed up.
All tools are reground and re-coated utilising the same advanced technology as for the manufacture of the tools. And we regrind your tools with the same care that we use to manufacture new tools. We also RE•NEW® other tool brands with very good results. You will benefit from tool performances on reground tools, which can match or even surpass the performance of a new tool.
Due to a unique internally developed norm system and a very advanced drawing database, we are able to continuously deliver tools with the exact same geometries throughout all future deliveries, regardless in which KYOCERA UNIMERCO manufacturing facility your tools are being produced.
