Update – 6th December 2019
We’ve been to Manchester University to supply them with a set of blades and a rotor for scanning and modelling. The 29 blades were removed from a Rolls-Royce Viper Engine. This engine was chosen because the blades are made from steel which will allow them to be excited using a magnetic field whilst spinning in the test rig.
Thanks to Ben at Vapourworx surface solutions for the great job of cleaning the blades and disk.

We’ve been back to Manchester University to supply them with another set of blades and a rotor for scanning and modelling. We now have three complete rotors from two Viper engines, all with steel blades
Thanks again to Ben at Vapourworx surface solutions for another great job of cleaning the blades and disk.
