The cradle (also called tooling or fixturing) which holds the blade being measured is an
integral part of the AWS 800 Series TURBINE BLADE MOMENT BALANCE system. |
If a blade is not held for measurement exactly as it would be held in the actual engine assembly; any measurements achieved are meaningless.
Custom cradles are unique for each blade. While the root of one blade may be the same as another, the factors of weight, length and nominal moment must all be taken into account when designing and manufacturing the cradle for a particular blade.
Additionally, a custom designed weight which exactly duplicates the root of the blade and is correct to 2 decimal places of optimum moment is critically necessary for proper set-up and calibration of the system.
