Panel discussion “Additive technology as the sixth technological order: Russian and international experience of scientific and technological development and its industrial implementation” took place at the INNOPROM fair on the 9th of July.

Acting as one of the main speakers, CEO of “Technodinamika” holding Maxim Kuzyuk observed that the industrial application of additive technologies allows to enhance qualitative and economic features of the product and speed up its design and manufacturing considerably. To make an example Maxim Kuzyuk told about the production of a pump aluminum drive at one of the holding enterprises. Through the use of 3D-printing they managed to reduce 3 times the weight of the casing and the process of part manufacturing took only one day. In addition, the number of parts and production operations is decreased considerably and the technological process goes in a fully automatic mode, which appreciably reduces the significance of the so called “human factor” and improves the product quality.

“The industrial use of 3D-printing in Russia is still in its infancy. To develop and to spread this technology, we should move in several directions at a time: train qualified personnel, form new standards, and establish applicable normative documents”, he said.  “Technodinamika” is already moving in all mentioned directions. We are interested in the widest possible implementation of innovations, because only this way of development can provide an international level of quality and competitive price. Additive manufacturing can help to strengthen the technological leadership of the holding and will favor the substitution of foreign products at the domestic aviation equipment market”.
Besides Maxim Kuzyuk, the speakers of the panel discussion were Director of the Metallurgy and Heavy Industry Department at the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Alexey Mikheev, President of Boeing Russia/CIS Sergey Kravchenko, Director of the Aviation Industry Department at the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Sergey Yemelyanov and Director General of “Titanium Valley SEZ” OJSC Artemiy Kyzlasov.
