English term or phrase: vane vs. blade
Tengo esta frase:

Rotor vanes may be either solid fixed blades welded to the shaft, or shorter blades with a bolt on adjustable tip. Fixed blades are typically thicker and more rigid than adjustable tips.

Tanto "vane" como "blade" pueden ser las palas (paletas) del rotor. ¿Una de las dos se podrí atraducir por aspas? ¿O no hay ninguna diferencia?

Parece que para "vanes" encontramos "paletas" o "aspas", mientras que para "blades" coinciden "palas" y "aspas".

Creo que en tu texto "vanes" se refieren más bien a la parte funcional del rotor, y "blade" es más descriptivo y da idea de su forma ("hoja").
