AV&R Vision & Robotics offers automated Finishing and Visual Inspection systems. The high precision of AV&R's systems is a natural choice for critical high-value gas turbine parts, both in the aerospace and energy industries.
For over 15 years, AV&R has been providing automated systems to OEM gas turbine manufacturers and their supply chain. This long-standing skilled expertise developed by AV&R's engineers has been harnessed to fine-tune their solutions to a high degree of excellence.
The solutions offered by AV&R cover two different areas of focus:
The automation of processes allows reduction in production and labor costs, as well as improved productivity and quality.
AV&R's systems achieve a high level of accuracy in Robotic Finishing (ex.: profiling at 37.5 microns / ± 1.5 thousandths of an inch) and in Visual Inspection (ex.: detection of random defects with a depth of 20 microns / 0.8 thousandth of an inch).
Answering specifically the needs of the aerospace and energy industries, the solutions developed by AV&R yield a fast return on investment, often achieved in less than a year.
Any metal part in a gas turbine (with or without coating) requiring finishing machining and / or inspection is a typical application for AV&R's expertise. The majority of AV&R's systems work on blades, vanes, blisks / IBRs and casings of gas turbines used in aerospace and energy. AV&R has also developed an expertise in aerospace structures on lip skins and in inspection of complete aircraft engines.
