Rouge DZN: VXTurbine

MATERIAL: Mil-Spec G-5 Aerospace-Grade Titainium
PROCESSES: 5-axis machined from billet block, etching
FINISH: Zero hand finishing / Calculated tool-paths
DIMENSIONS: WINGSPAN: 39.12mm (1.54"), LENGTH: 76.2mm (3.0"), THICKNESS: 29.97mm (1.18")

The VX-TURBINE pendant is a fully functioning, tri-blade, 30-part turbine assembly. The study of complex movement and airflow analysis combines intricate form and sculpted surfacing to push the boundaries of machining to new heights. The introduction of "live" 5-axis machining and custom-made cutting tools allow the three turbine blades to be gracefully carved from G5 Military Spec. aerospace-grade titanium. As air accelerates through the specifically designed front-intake, the three turbines (mounted on six high-speed precision bearings) spool-up and come to life, providing a direct insight into the inner-workings of air travel. Each of these limited-run pieces is individually serial numbered 1-10 to assure its place in history.
PRICE: $9,200.00 US
