March 26, 2015, Rybinsk. - Electro-chemical milling and electro-discharge machining as well as different applications of laser and hydroabrasive treatment, part reinforcement methods and production automation were the main subjects of discussion at the “Innovative machining methods and prospective technological solutions in the production of parts for gas turbine engines” of the II international technological forum held in Rybinsk.
The section played host to 22 dedicated presentations. The discussion was primarily focused on the particularities of specific engineering solutions in metalworking, the aspects of mathematical modeling, mechanization and automation in metalworking. Topical questions of increasing the efficiency of applying special machining methods in the production of gas turbine engines, state-of-the-art equipment and technologies were also treated. Particular consideration was given to the observance of the state import substitution program.
Presentations were made by the delegates representing NPO Saturn, the P.A. Solovev RSATU, Lapik, Laser Center, NIR, Emag, the Ulyanovsk State Technical University, Mikromat GmbH, Profiroll Technologies GmbH, Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH, Thermal-Spray-Tech, Seco, Guring, Iscar, Sandvik Coromant, Haltec, ATM-Groupe, Starrag AG, Siemens and Grob-Werke.
The section moderator Nikolay Sokolov, a project manager at the NPO Saturn chief engineer service noted: “Today’s mastering of new technological processes is a must for the dynamic development of any company specialized in research and production. Over the past years, many strategic companies have undergone technological modernization and technical re-equipment of their production facilities. A search for technological solutions allowing to synthesize the high quality and efficiency is a vital task. And this must be solved in close connection with the scientific community and in collaboration with the leading companies in such industries as the machine tool industry, tooling industry and in the development of new technologies. The section allowed its participants to share their experience, point out mutually profitable ways of collaboration with regard to the development of both special and conventional machining techniques in the production of gas turbine engines. The section’s work proved to be very constructive due to the proactive, business-oriented ambience and allowed the NPO Saturn chief engineer service to come up with a plan of further interaction with its counterparts in the pursuit of mutual interests and mutual profitability.”
