Removing Thermal Barrier Coatings on Aerospace Components
Today’s jet engines operate at very high temperatures, consequently they require many thousands of cooling channels to be drilled in the turbine components to ensure safe operation.
Our high peak power Fiber Lasers can be used to efficiently and quickly remove thermal barrier coating (tbc) prior to EDM drilling. Allowing end users to complete the EDM drilling on one singe machine and avoid (tbc) coating and post processing after the drilling operation is complete.
