VIAM at АКТО-2014 exhibition
On 5 – 8 August , 2014 representatives of All-Russian scientific-research institute of aviation materials (VIAM) Mikhail Bakradze and Ivan Gulyaev have been taking part in the 7-th international specialized exhibition «Aerospace technologies, up-to-date materials and equipment» (АКТО),which is held in Kazan’ traditionally.
The stand of VIAM is presented at the exhibition. It was visited on the first working day by the President of the Tatarstan Republic Rustam Minnikhanov, president of JSC «UAC» Mikhail Pogosyan, deputy prime-minister of RT – minister of trade and industry of the republic Ravil’ Zaripov and representatives of state corporations and branch enterprises.
Mikhail Bakradze told guests about main directions of VIAM’s work including the ones on creation of materials of new generation, high-processable small-capacity production, development of additive technologies, processes of polymer composite materials (PCM) and functional materials manufacture, but also about the branch of VIAM – Gelendjik center of climatic tests.
In addition, representatives of Roscosmos, Ministry of Defense of Russia, CDB «Progress», OJSC«UMPO», OJSC«NPO GIPO», KMPO, KNIAT, KChTI, KNITU, KAI, KAI-Composit visited the exposure of the institute.
As Ivan Gulyaev noted in this connection, «the theme of additive technologies in application to the structures of heat path passage of gas turbine engines, PCM production, organization of works at VIAM in the field of live environmental tests arose a special interest of specialists »
During the event Mikhail Bakradze also held negotiations with R.Khamatov, chief metallurgist of Kazan’ engine production enterprise. At the negotiations the sides considered a possibility of delivery of VPR series powder solders and heat-resistant alloys powders for surfacing.
