Compressor Blade Coating Removal System


This compact, robotic waterjet system removes coatings from aircraft engine compressor blades.  The unique, high production design has dual shuttles that handle racks of blades.  One rack is outside being loaded by the operator, while the other rack is inside being processed by the robot.  Progressive’s PRIMS Pro software commands operation of the complete system, easily managing flexible tooling and programming for a wide variety of part configurations.
