TURBOCAM International
Propulsion

 

TURBOCAM manufactures rocket turbopumps that take payloads into space, integrally bladed rotors for turbojets and commercial aircraft engines, and stators in segments or in separate vanes.

We are able to meet the prototype and production manufacturing needs of the propulsion market by offering a wide array of cost-effective manufacturing solutions. We call on the skills of engineers with vast experience in product design, aerodynamics, geometric modeling, metallurgy, and concurrent engineering. Skills have been honed over hundreds of prototypes not only allow us to yield competitive cycle times to keep our prices down, but to offer innovative machining techniques to coax points of efficiency out of a design. TURBOCAM prefers to see designers get what they need for aerodynamic efficiency and structural integrity, rather than compromise to save cost. Clients have been able to get the best combinations in arbitrary surface and inverse designs and root fillets without breaking the bank.

We currently manufacture thousands of stator vanes every week in Inconel 718 to exacting specifications. TURBOCAM has integrated grinding, measurement, polishing with 5-axis milling and electro-chemical machining to get a popular aero engine into production. This is typical of the skills integration at the company.

TURBOCAM has experience in:

  • Inconel 625®
  • Inconel 718® S
  • Waspaloy® and other high nickel alloys
  • Titanium 6-2-4-2 and Ti-17

The company also has knowledge in more common alloys of titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum, achieving the exacting standards that are typical of the industry.

Behind all of the headline technologies are some of the less visible but critically important skill sets.

TURBOCAM offers:

  • Hirth, curvic or polygon couplings
  • Inertia-welded shafts
  • Metallurgical experience and testing of stainless steels, titanium and aluminum, both wrought and forged
  • Balancing and overspeed testing
  • Statistical Process Control and superior quality management
  • Open and integrally-shrouded impellers, and partially-integrally shrouded (patented) impellers
  • TX Treatments - metal diffusion protection for high wear and FOD environments
  • Experience in managing quality of copper and nickel brazing (by vendors)
  • Non-destructive testing of brazed and welded joints
