More on our power generation services

3D scanning for power generation

The GOM photogrammetry and ATOS scanning systems are perfect for the power generation industry as they provide the most accurate, repeatable measurements in a short time frame. The two measurement systems work in parallel, with the photogrammetry providing the accurate reference point cloud as the base for the high resolution scanning system. This also means that the size of the object that can be captured is increased as there is minimal loss in accuracy when the scanning area increases.

Reverse engineering and design for power generation

Using the reverse engineering tools within Siemens NX, reverse engineering CAD models from scan data can be done accurately and in a short time frame. The reverse engineering process utilises the geometry determined from the detailed inspection reports, which are generated from the GOM inspection software. This is then used for parts such as stream and industrial gas turbine blades and vanes etc, back to the original design intent to allow for CAD models and drawings to be created for CAE and re-manufacture. Casting and machining models can be derived from the same project ensuring continuity between models including interfacing components. Engineering drawings for assembly, inspection and re-manufacture can also be generated to ease the process between digital models and physical parts.

Quality inspection for power generation

Using the blade inspection tools from the GOM Inspect software, Physical Digital can easily measure and inspect specific blade geometry such as; · Profile mean lines · Profile centroid · Profile twist · Flow inlet/exit angles · Chord line (bitangential, axial, max) · Stagger angles · Camber angles · Blade pitch · Throat area/sectional distances · Leading and trailing edge geometry With 3D full-field data, high detail and visual inspection can be completed in a short period of time. Using colour map inspection on CAD or specific geometry can quickly become essential for inspecting parts as the visual nature of the report makes identifying defects simple and speedy.
