Surface preparation (grinding/sanding). Decontamination. FIller Application.
Scan the blade before the repair and generate a 3D model of the blade in 12 μm (micrometer) precision to assess the blade condition and adjust the tools.
Grinding and sanding
Remove the damaged/eroded layer to allow for application of a new layer of filler.
Clean up the blade and prepare it for filler application to provide maximal durability of the material applied later.
Filler application and profiling
Apply an exact amount of the filler material on the blade and profile it in a high-precision.
Scan the blade after the repair to validate the result and guarantee the highest quality.
Changing the robotic arms
After each of the steps it is necessary to change the robotic arms. Each of the robotic arms perform different task
5min x 4
Time necessary to perform the whole process for one blade
1.5h - 2h
