IMM is proud to be represented by YKT (http://www.ykt.co.jp/) in Japan and this year marked yet another fruitful JIMTOF exhibition for IMM in Japan.
Customers from across Japan came to visit our booth to learn about our latest CNC blade polishing equipment. In recent years an increasing number of OEM's use IMMs technology to CNC polish compressor blades and vanes to optimize flow efficiency and minimize differences due to tolerances in blade geometry, which is essential to the balancing of the compressor rotor and the fit of the stator parts. At JIMTOF we exhibited details on our new 6-axis CNC Grinding and Polishing machine specifically made for the purpose of CNC Grinding. Our CNC-Machines type SPE and MTS allows automatic polishing of all rows of the Gas Turbine Compressor, as well as Steam Turbine Blades. This allows our customers in Japan to increase annual production output and speed up the manufacturing process of blades.
