Thermal machining system that cuts engineering alloys faster and with less energy than conventional milling
02 May, 2011
Andy Trimmer, a chemical engineer at the GE Global Research Process Systems Lab operates the Blue Arc thermal machining system that cuts engineering alloys faster and with less energy than conventional milling. An engine blisk for a GE CF34-8 regional-jet engine illustrates the precision machining required for such engineered products. Now, GE is exploring licensing opportunities for BlueArc, with machine builders and OEMs who would deploy as a roughing process for other operations, It predicts similar benefits from reductions in machining cycle time; lower tooling costs, and the opportunity to implement lean manufacturing concepts.
