3D Mapping of crystalline turbine blades

The high temperature creep resistance of turbine blades made from single crystal NI-superalloys depends on the deviation from the target orientation*.

The Omega/Theta system with 3D mapping extension can measure the orientation deviation across the surface of the turbine blade.
