Tech Tip Series: Learn the Turbomachinery Machining Workflow

By NXManufacturing

Blisk Milling

NX Turbomachinery Milling simplifies the NC programming of complex 5-axis blisks and impellers for aero-engines, turbo-machinery and power generation equipment. You can use advanced operations specifically designed to produce smart toolpaths for blisks and impellers. This results in faster machining times, better surface finish and longer tool life.

This three-part Tech Tip series describes the process steps and considerations for milling a multi-bladed part using NX CAM Turbomachinery Milling.

  1. Turbomachinery Milling with NX CAM Part 1, Setup

  2. Turbomachinery Milling with NX CAM Part 2, Roughing

  3. Turbomachinery Milling with NX CAM Part 3, Blade Finishing
