 to bolster support of their aerospace and energy customers. The application- based design of the LX021 maximizes part rigidity with its spindle and sub- spindle part clamping. The turret on the sub-spindle allows multiple work holding strategies to be used to fully machine blades in one set-up.
The LX021 offers a comprehensive integrated solution that includes a self- centering vice which minimizes part distortion while maintaining accuracy and repeatability and Kinematic cor- rection cycles to calibrate the machine and verify its health over time along with advanced RCS CAM software designed specifically to generate optimize CNC tool paths. RCS blade inspection precisely measures blades, and compensates for forging variations to increase first time yield.

Starrag’s full solution strategy in-
cludes incorporating Blum-Novotest Inc probing technology for precise in-process part measuring, tool setting, and surface roughness verification. The surface roughness gage is programmed with 5-axis motion directly in the RCS CAM software. Roughness measure- ments can be made on surfaces as low as 16μin Ra. After in processes measuring, the data is saved ready for SPC quality monitoring.
Starrag is also partnering with HAIMER, a leading precision tool holding manufacturer, to include their heat shrink holders and power clamp special addition heat shrink unit in the lab. Haimer’s high-precision holders,
