Method of manufacturing an annular bladed member having an integral shroud

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4786347.

A gas turbine engine disc having integral, radially extending aerofoil blades and an integral shroud interconnecting the radially outer extents of the blades is described. In the manufacture thereof continuous fibres are wound around an annular array of inserts provided in a dividable disc. The inserts define the spaces between adjacent blades on the disc. A mixture of chopped carbon fibre and an epoxy resin matrix material is then injected into the central portion of the die interior. Any part of the wound fibres which has not been impregnated by the chopped fibre/resin matrix material is subsequently impregnated by a matrix material whereupon the die is opened to release the thus produced bladed disc.
