Unmachined parts go in, finished parts come out

Starrag FMS enables fully automated turbine blade production

The latest flexible manufacturing system (FMS) designed and created by Starrag is heading to China. A company active in the Chinese aviation industry annually machines 35,000 Inconel or titanium-forged turbine blades right through to completion via a fully automated process. The operator simply inserts the unmachined parts into the magazine and then removes the ready-to-install blades at the other end.
