Case study: Renishaw reduces machining time for aerospace impeller manufacturer

Honeywell Aerospace, part of global commercial and consumer engineering conglomerate Honeywell, produces a large number of the impellers and blisks used in commercial aeroplanes. The impellers, which are essentially radial and axial compressors, rely on a workpiece datum being maintained throughout the machining process to ensure that they are suitable for use. If the workpiece datum point is not maintained, the impeller will be considered incompatible and will require rework,
repair or scrapping entirely.
