Aero Norway, the independent engine MRO provider and trusted partner for customers operating CFM56-3, CFM56-5B and 7B engines, has invested $1.5 million in a new state-of-the-art high speed grinder sustaining its position as a leading full service engine MRO. The purchase of this specialist machine will ensure stable and efficient turn-around times are maintained and that the services Aero Norway’s customers are being offered remain at the forefront of engine MRO technology capabilities.
The Danobat mBTG-800 High Speed Blade Tip Grinding Machine is manufactured for the precision grinding, deburring and measuring of the blade tips of finished assembled engine turbine and APU rotors.
“The investment of $1.5 million in this piece of equipment allows us to grind the rotor blade tips whilst they are being spun at high speed. This presents the blades to the grinding wheel as they would be if they were in operation,” says Glenford Marston, CEO of Aero Norway. “We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of engine MRO and the purchase of this machine ensures that we can offer the highest degree of accuracy possible with current technologies on blade tip grinding.”
