A Long History of Manufacturing Products

For over 40 years, Concepts NREC has provided the total resources to design and manufacture complete, turnkey turbomachinery products – from short-run needs through production quantities. Concepts NREC product production services are especially well-suited for the manufacture of precision turbomachines, including various types of compressors, turbines, pumps, propulsors, propellers, fans, and blowers that incorporate complex blades, blisks, and impellers – including integrally shrouded wheels.

Concepts NREC Develops, Manufactures, and Sells its Own Products

In addition to contract manufacturing complete turbomachinery products for customers, Concepts NREC manufactures and sells specialized turbomachinery products that serve well-defined niche applications.

These products are jointly developed with customers who first establish a market need for a new or improved technology. Concepts NREC then supplies the development expertise to turn their specification into a successful product. However, rather than just providing services for a fee, development costs are shared, enabling Concepts NREC to establish additional applications and markets for the product and generate noncompetitive sales. The results allow development costs to be amortized over larger production quantities, and both companies further benefit by producing a better product at a lower cost.

Proven Expertise

The full power and benefit of our turbomachinery design & manufacturing software suite is realized when the various modules are used together. The suite seamlessly transfers information between modules with the click of a button, saving time and eliminating the possibility of transfer errors. It also facilitates easy transfer at any step of the process to all major CAD formats and other third-party CFD and FEA packages.
 
Final designs can then be easily imported into our industry-leading CAM software, MAX-PAC, to create efficient 5-axis machining solutions.
 
Our integrated design and manufacturing software tools provide designers with a cost-effective, concurrent development approach that balances issues of performance, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and manufacturability.

What Are the 5 Axes in 5 Axis Machining?
by Christos Maninos, CAM Application Engineer & Peter Klein, Director, CAM Software
What is 5 axis machining? In short, it is manufacturing a component on a CNC milling machine that can travel in 5 different directions. These machines allow the cutting tool to reach around parts with a high degree of freedom. This makes them ideal for milling the complex shapes of turbo machinery components.

Increased Milling Capability and Capacity for Large 5-Axis Impellers
by Sean McDermott
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.
