Raptor Scientific not only designs and manufactures the best balancing solutions for individual blades, we also offer the widest range of blade balancing machines, also called moment weight scales, for jet engines. Our series of multi-axis machines for fan blades accommodate vertical or horizontal loading of the blades and offers automatic range selection features as well as several accuracy levels.

Commercial Aviation

We offer a wide variety of mass properties measurement services and products including blade balancing for aircraft – both fixed and rotary wing – and unmanned aerial vehicles (drones and UAVs).

Raptor offers the best balancing solutions for individual blades. We manufacture the widest range of blade balancing machines, also known as moment weight scales, for jet engines.

  • We offer two series of multi-axis machines for fan blades to accommodate all needs – vertical or horizontal loading of the blades, automatic range selection, and several accuracy levels.
  • Our single axis moment weight scales are ideal for measuring high pressure and low-pressure stages of aircraft engines. Our single-axis scales come in two different series: a high accuracy series featuring the highest accuracy on the market; and a low-cost version providing the same accuracy as traditional designs.
  • Our blade optimization software, also called blade distribution software, calculates the best combination of blades that minimizes the overall unbalance of the rotor stage. Our blade distribution software accounts for a given unbalance of the hub.

Our KSR and MP series of instruments are ideal to measure the mass properties of aircraft engines. Our KSR series of instruments are also used to measure moment of inertia and center of gravity location of control surfaces, wings, and rudders.

A Sample of Commercial Engine Development Programs Supported

  • General Electric GE9X
  • Pratt & Whitney PW1000G
  • General Electric GEnx
  • Pratt & Whitney PW6000

Military Avionics 

Raptor Scientific designs and manufactures state of the art flight line, shipboard and special purpose electronic test equipment. Our field-tested, rugged avionic flight line and bench test sets lead the avionics support industry, combining multiple test functions in a single unit, reducing customer costs and increasing efficiency.

Our igniter circuit testers are approved by the US Department of Defense for failsafe measurement of the resistance and stray voltage in the multiple electrical circuit paths leading to critical components, like explosive, missile, or rocket ignition.

Commercial Avionics

Commercial customers know us for our intuitive and innovative user interface, long battery life, reliability, and industry-leading performance.

Our igniter circuit testers for commercial use come in single and multi-channel models for testing simple electronics paths to complex multi-path circuits.

Our single axis moment weight scales are ideal for measuring high pressure and low-pressure stages of aircraft engines. Our single axis scales come in two different series: a high accuracy series featuring the highest accuracy on the market; and a low-cost version providing the same accuracy as traditional designs.

Our blade optimization software, also called blade distribution software, calculates the best combination of blades that minimizes the overall unbalance of the rotor stage. Our blade distribution software accounts for a given unbalance of the hub.
