Whether for generating electricity or air travel – turbines have now become an integral part of our everyday lives.
Global air transport has grown by more than 60% over the past 10 years and continues to be a rapidly growing market. Topics such as increasing efficiency and saving weight are becoming more and more important. Manufacturers of engine and turbine components are turning to TYROLIT with their challenges, and we work together to find the best grinding solutions.
Industrial gas turbines used for power generation can essentially be divided into two categories: The heavier and larger heavy-duty gas turbines and the so-called aeroderivative gas turbines derived from aviation and used as stationary machines coupled with a generator for flexible power generation.
As a result, many components are very similar to those in aviation and use nickel-based materials. With our specially developed highly porous grinding tools, which effectively absorb the chip and the coolant and thereby ensure an economically efficient process, we have established ourselves as the market leader in deep-cutting.
