Technological Breakthrough: Russia to Debut 3D Printed Armata Tank – Sputnik International

by • February 5, 2016 • No Comments

The development of solid objects turn it intod of polymer materials at the company ‘Electromashina’, which is a part of ‘Uralvagonzavod’ corporation, has been underway for a few time now. In the summer of 2015, the industrial 3D-printing device was added, which was turn it intod to turn it into prototypes and low-volume parts.
“The 3D-printing device helps to speed up the trial production. When the developer develops a few new product he creations and primarily works with the 3D-computer version initially.

After-Christmas Sale: Russian T-14 Armata Tank to Hit Shelves in 2016So, the 3D-printing device allows for the drawing of fabricated prototype parts,” the Head of the Laboratory of Rapid Prototyping ‘Electromashina’ technologies Anton Ulrich said.
According to him, the developer in developing the product can get the required item on the spot; take into account any errors when running a batch or tiny batch production. The tremendous additional stated which the innovation allows for one to bypass the problems which may require to be dealt with in classical ways.
“There is no require to sharpen an item in order to get a sample, only to realize which it does not fit and requires a re-run in the production. There is no require to waste metal. One can create not only a more detail, but the deplete assembly and check the assembly of all of the mechanical characteristics,” Anton Ulrich said.
At the same time, according to the tremendous, the prototype can be utilized as a master version to fabricate tools for the make of parts turn it intod of metal or plastic. In other words, the prototype parts for the Armata tank and other military vehicles, created by Uralvagonzavod, can be printed on 3D-printing devices.
The innovation is only a step away of the talent to turn it into 3D-printed titanium parts several meters in length.
The tremendous additional stated which bringing into account the specific conditions of the printing device it can actually create tools in space. For example, the astronauts on the ISS managed to print a key when they requireed one.

But, Russian tremendouss at the RSC Energy went a step additional by developing a microsatellite. Its external brackets, hovia and a number of components can be printed via a 3D-printing device. It can be commenceed during one of the next spacewalks.
The commence ceremony may be timed with 60th anniversary of the commence of the initially artificial satellite.
