Increased Milling Capability and Capacity for Large 5-Axis Impellers

by Sean McDermott on Aug 30, 2019 9:19:33 AM

Concepts NREC has added two additional Hermle 5-axis mills in our shop, and we’re excited 

about the increased capabilities these new machines bring! In August of 2018 we received the 

first of these mills, a 2018 Hermle C52uMT.  Just recently, in May of 2019, we added a Hermle C42u


In addition to these new, state-of-the-art 5-axis Hermle mills, our shop utilizes a Mikron HSM600U, good for parts up to ~13” in diameter; a Hermle C40, which can mill parts up to ~20” in diameter, and a Mitsui Seiki HS5A-80, which can handle larger parts, up to ~32” in diameter.  We now have a full range of  5-axis mills capable of producing the most challenging parts from >1 inch up to over 39 inches in diameter.  

Putting Entropy to Work

The previous blog, Entropy Happens… Deal with It! ended with the statement, “That’s how Concepts NREC deals with the constraints of the Second Law of Thermodynamics when designing high-efficiency turbomachinery – we literally put entropy to work!” That blog not only lead to an increase in sales of bumper sticker sales emblazoned with “Working on it, STAY TUNED!”, it led to a request to explore this statement in a little more detail – particularly as the idea might apply to the analysis, design and manufacturing of turbomachinery.
