Deputy Minister on Education, Alexander Klimov, and the representatives of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) acquainted with the possibilities of high-tech equipment, located in the research laboratories of the university during a visit to NI ISTU. The guests were interested in a joint research project of the University and Ltd. "Corporation "Irkut" to develop innovative technologies in the aircraft industry. Moscow delegation appreciated the opportunity of ISTU in the training of skilled personnel for aircraft industry who are having a world-class competencies.
The complex of the equipment of the first laboratory, which was attended by representatives of UAC and A. Klimov: "Technologies for high-performance machining, forming and hardening of machine parts" is unique in its composition and has no analogues in Russia. Deputy Minister was demonstrated turning center NEF400, five-axis milling machining center for machining of titanium DMU80P duoBLOCK, German company DMG, and industrial robot of Japanese firm Fanuc, as well as five-axis milling center HSC75V Linear for aluminum. All these machines are successfully mastered by the students and postgraduates of the university.
Scientific director of the laboratory, Andrey Savilov, stressed that the equipment belongs to the latest generation of machines and combines all innovative technologies that are now used in the machine tool industry. Laboratory’s equipment can solve the problem in most current problems in the field of high-performance machining, shaping and hardening of machine parts. Experiments are carried out in the laboratory, during them it can measure the cutting forces, the temperature in the cutting zone, carry out the analysis of geometric accuracy with high performance and the surface quality of workpieces, hardness and electrical conductivity of processed samples.
According to the supervisor of the laboratory "Advanced methods of forming in a blank-stamping process" Andrey Shmakov, laboratory staff carris out work on the creation and testing of new technologies of shaping sheet metal parts made of aluminum and titanium alloys for a wide range of engineering products. Postgraduate students and students of the subdepartment of aircraft machine engineering carry out specialized tests of metals and alloys in the modes of superplastic deformation in the laboratory. The laboratory staff is engaged in a virtual simulation of the processes of superplastic molding of parts, using the Licensed Software.
