November 14th, 2023
Mass air flow measurement provides a functional test of precision machined parts like those used in gas turbine engines. It’s important for minimizing temperature variations and vibration, preventing overheating and maximizing efficiency. Impro Aerotek produces and repairs the highly engineered
Applications of Swiss Screw Machining in Various Industries
October 24th, 2023
Switzerland is famous for high quality watches, and tiny, high-precision screws contribute to their success. Today, though, the machine tool technology developed to make these intricate parts is used to produce a host of other items too. This blog explores
Introduction to Impro Mexico’s Precision Machining Process Capabilities
October 10th, 2023
Our precision machining facility produces complex, high value-added, mission-critical components from bar stock for customers in transportation, agricultural and construction equipment, industrial machinery and other industries. These precision machining operations launched in Mexico in 2016. In 2021 they were transferred
Manufacturing Techniques for Gas Turbine Nozzle Assemblies
September 12th, 2023
In a gas turbine engine the nozzle assembly comes just after the combustion chamber. It directs fast moving gasses onto the turbine blades that generate the rotary motion needed for power generation. It’s a complex piece of engineering, produced in
Maintenance Tips for Hydraulic Orbital Motors
July 25th, 2023
Hydraulic orbital motors provide high torque from a compact package. They are ideal for mobile and industrial applications where electric motors would be too big, bulky, expensive or otherwise impractical. Agricultural, forestry and construction machinery are examples of mobile uses
Tips for Optimizing Swiss Screw Machining Efficiency
June 29th, 2023
Swiss screw CNC lathes are highly productive machines, but running them at less than maximum efficiency can mean a significant loss of output. This blog explains the kind of precision machining work they are best suited to and how to
Precision Machining for Oil & Gas Applications
June 15th, 2023
The tough alloys used for demanding applications in the oil and gas sector pose serious machining challenges. Cutting forces are high, inserts wear rapidly, and chips refuse to break. Add these problems to the tight tolerances and complex geometries required
Overcoming Common Challenges in Swiss Screw Machining
June 8th, 2023
It’s said Swiss machining originated with the need to produce tiny screws for the Swiss watch industry. True or not, the definition has broadened over time. Today it describes a technology for precision machining small cylindrical parts quickly and efficiently.
An Introduction to Making Gas Turbine Nozzle Assemblies
June 1st, 2023
The combustion gases expelled from a gas turbine will quickly erode and can even melt most steels. For internal components to survive in such an environment, they are investment cast in nickel-based superalloys, precision machined and carefully inspected. Here’s an
