Full Scale Blisk

The full scale blisk (blade+disk) project allows the IMS Lab’s students to work hand-in-hand with industrial leaders in developing and optimizing the latest in 5-axis toolpath generation CAM functionality. By examining the detailed toolpath generation options, machine tool dynamics, and cutting conditions, the exact cause of machining deficiencies can be identified and improved.
