Aero Engine Flawless Quality Solutions for Masterpieces of Aviation

Modern aircraft engines are masterpieces of engineering and their requirements for performance and fuel efficiency are increasing constantly. For such safety-critical parts, flawless accuracy is a must. ZEISS offers a rich portfolio of high-end metrology solutions for this industry. Aerospace manufacturers can now realize improved productivity while achieving the right level of precision for their measuring tasks.

Fan Blades

Fan Blades

Fan blades produce 90 % of an engine’s full thrust, making them crucial for jet-engine performance and efficiency. However, the fan blade’s large size, unique geometries and the variety of materials used in the manufacturing process create challenges for measurement and inspection. Learn how ZEISS can solve these challenges.

Compressor Blades

The aero engine compressors consists of thousands of
blades, each between 25 – 200 mm. As modern compressor blade designs create thinner and more twisted airfoils, the bar for precision continues to rise. ZEISS Quality Solutions enable high engine efficiency by assuring highest precision in compressor blade production.

Measuring bladed rotors is highly complicated due to their exotic sizes, shapes and special machining techniques, including unique combinations to achieve the desired characteristics. However, ZEISS solutions can meet all these demands.

Turbine Blades

Turbine blades are the workhorse of the modern aero engine. They operate in an extreme environment, with temperatures exceeding 1,600˚ C / 2,732˚ F (enough to melt the materials) and centrifugal forces of multiple tonnes generated by rotations of up to 12,000 rpm. Since the shape of the turbine blade determines energy efficiency, airflow and thrust, any surface or dimensional imperfection can cause blade and ultimately engine failure.
