TURBOCAM specializes in turbomachinery products and applications, with a core competency in 5-axis milling and software. The "CAM" in TURBOCAM stands for "Computer Aided Manufacturing."
The company got its start in 1985 in software development for manufacturing. With over one hundred 5-axis milling machines, and a similar number of 4- and 3-axis mills, lathes, and other computer-driven machines, TURBOCAM leverages software solutions to achieve the edge in manufacturing.
By being able to continuously innovate in the design and use of software, and by preserving the lessons learned into a continuously evolving and active software R&D effort, a high degree of flexibility has flowed into prototyping ability and experience.
It is not just manufacturing that makes the company the supplier of choice to major aerospace, automotive, and industrial turbomachinery projects. TURBOCAM engineers bring unique skills to a development team by striving to understand the needs of applications, and crafting creative and economically sound solutions.
Prototyping is a major emphasis of the company, with over 500 new and unique bladed parts being made every year. It takes more than 5-axis milling: Many parts require a variety of processes that TURBOCAM can provide internally, or by partnering with reputable companies.
TURBOCAM has obtained patents for two processes that may offer excellent manufacturing options for some designs:
- Electrochemical Machining of bladed parts;
- Machining of Shrouded Impellers
