Generating toolpaths for impellers, fans, and marine propellers is a complex 5-axis challenge. Machining these multibladed shapes usually requires special multistep, multiaxis programming, but Mastercam Blade Expert provides a comprehensive solution for various blade configurations. The interface follows the Mastercam standard used by all Multiaxis toolpaths, ensuring a short learning curve and successful deployment. Blade Expert turns your multiblade machining challenges into routine solutions:
- Remove the material from between the blades.
- Finish the blades/splitters.
- Finish the floor.
- Finish the fillets.
The most common application is to machine multibladed rotating parts for air or gas handling equipment. Blade Expert precisely and efficiently removes material between blades and finishes surfaces with gouge-free results. It is particularly useful for manufacturing compressor wheels, impellers, propellers, turbine blades, and blisks.
