Technology. Production" which was held in the city of Rybinsk, Yaroslavl region.
During the event the conferences and thematic sections were held to introduce with the main trends in the development of high-tech companies and to see opportunities to build new projects in the field of engineering, new materials and advanced manufacturing technologies.
In particular, Michael Bakradze has made a speech during the plenary session in which he has spoken about the materials and manufacturing technology of the new generation for engine building.
Next, Svetlana Popova has made the report "Application of electro-etching technology for the repair of protective coatings on the blades of a turbine engine from nickel alloys” in the section "Technologies of GTD repair". It has introduced a new method of surface treatment in plasma electrolytes and shown the results of the complex profile product selective etching with aluminide nickel (cobalt) based coatings obtained at VIAM.
In his turn, Svyatoslav Nerush has highlighted the issue of domestic development and use of metal powders of heat-resistant nickel-based alloys for selective laser melting in the section "Additive manufacturing". In particular, he has noted that VIAM has made the front mechanism of swirl combustion chamber of the metal powder super alloy for the first time in Russia.
The forum was attended by about 1000 specialists from Russia, Germany, France, Canada, Israel, Italy including representatives of the leading development institutions and their project companies from RVK, "Skolkovo", "RUSNANO", Higher School of Economics, JSC "UEC" and state corporation "Rostech".
