SCITEK were delighted to have given a presentation at this year’s NIDAYS on its commercially available Airjet Exciter system, which determines the fatigue life of Aero Engine Blades.
To give you a bit of background, Engine manufacturers need to know the fatigue life of every type of blade in their engine. This is effectively the weakest link as it is the component with the shortest life.
The fatigue life is determined during the development of new engines and for quality assurance reasons the fatigue life is also constantly checked to ensure manufacturing processes are consistent.
There is therefore a requirement for a system that can accurately measure the number of cycles before a blade fatigues, and that is exactly what our Airjet Exciter system does.
