VIAM AT EURASIAN AEROSPACE CONGRESS
On August 24, 2015, Cand. of Sc. (Tech.), Olga G. Ospennikova, head of scientific-research bureau «Heat-resistant cast and wrought alloys and steels, protective coatings for GTE components» has taken part in the First Eurasian Aerospace Congress, which was held within the framework of business program of the International Aviation and Space Show MAKS-2015.
In the course of the event, Olga Ospennikova made the report “Materials and technologies of new generation for advanced aerospace engineering”. In particular, she reported about interaction between VIAM and government-owned corporations, industrial enterprises and scientific institutions in the field of development of materials and technologies of new generation.
According to her, a successful example of such interaction is cooperation between VIAM, Institute on Laser and Information Technologies (ILIT RAS) and Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in the frame of the created consortium. “We conduct joint researches and development of additive technologies for production and repair of gas-turbine engine components”, - the head of scientific-research bureau pointed out and added, that “OJSC AVIADVIGATEL” is our industrial partner, which will use these technologies to produce its articles.” “We consider such cooperation as the best form for realization of the most important state projects”, she pointed out.
In her report, Olga Ospennikova spoke about the role of digital and additive technologies, which play the key role in the improving of manufacture process to make components of complex technical systems. “Just application of additive technologies allows to implement to the full extent the main principles of development of materials of new generation, which are specified in the Strategic directions of development of materials and technologies for the period until 2030”, she emphasized.
According to her, technologies were developed and serial production of high quality powder solders and powder compositions of domestic alloys (more than 25 grades) for additive technologies was organized at VIAM; the complete set of regulatory documentation was issued as well.
The efforts of the Institute in the field of the development of additive technologies have already borne fruits. “For the first time in Russia, VIAM has produced a key component of advanced aircraft engine PD-14 (front combustion chamber swirler) by additive technologies, which fully meets requirements of the design documentation”, Olga Ospennikova reported.
