Measuring Turbine Blades
Measuring a turbine blade with 4D InSpec is an easy matter. You may inspect a wide range of blade elements and features with high versatility:
- Deformations of blade edges
- Surface defects
- Defects between blades
- Radius of curvature
Blade Edge Measurements
Grooved focus aids help you hold 4D InSpec in alignment with a turbine blade edge. From a measurement, you can quantify dents and deflections from damage.
Automated feature analysis can be used to isolate and quantify different kinds of defects found in a measurement.
Defects Between Blades
Use a fold mirror to measure surfaces between closely placed blades.
Radius of curvature
The photo below shows an area of curvature, and a measurement that calculates the radius of curvature in the joint.
