High speed metallic material removal under accepta.. (HIMMOVAL)
High speed metallic material removal under acceptable surface integrity for rotating frame
Start date: Nov 1, 2013,
End date: Oct 31, 2015
"The HIMMOVAL project aims to develop a new rapid metal removal concept under acceptable surface integrity for fabricating typical jet engine components made of high resistant super alloys that will be based on smart use of non-conventional machining methods, namely water jet technologies and low plasticity burnishing surface treatment, optimized conventional machining and a well-defined sequence of processes. The concept to be developed will show high productivity, low cost, the capability to create special geometries or cavities and the robustness to be translated to a real production situation. The feasibility of a radical improvement of material removal rate when using conventional machining with defined cutting edges through cryogenic cooling or creative machining strategies will also be explored.The generated results will enable optimum selection of removal processes together with their parameters under stringent surface integrity requirements for high resistant alloys. Moreover, the rapid removal concept will contribute to deliver the geared open rotor demonstrator technologies addressed within the CSJU SAGE2 project to demonstration.The HIMMOVAL consortium is integrated by 1 research organisation, 1 university and 1 SME.."
