Abstract

In construction of several different stages of stator compressor fin assemblies used in a number of GE aircraft engines, the placement of each fin in relation to the assembly needs to be ascertained very precisely. The fixtures used for this measurement process were completely redesigned to increase the rate at which these measurements can be taken as well as improve the ergonomics. Analyses were conducted to validate the design and a prototype fixture was constructed for evaluation.
