Impeller

Impellers are highly complex workpieces which can only be milled with 5-axis machines. On the other hand, impellers are classic family parts. Their construction is always based on a very similar form, the same functionality and the same basic rules apply.


The specially developed EUKLID Impeller module considers base, top and blade surface and executes the complete calculation automatically, including the milling program. To generate the impeller milling program, the collision control due to minimum distance, cutter size, cutter draft angle and the necessary lead angle will be calculated. The lead angle avoids flaws that otherwise could be created by undercuts.
