Scientists Develop a New Technology for Manufacturing Gas Turbine Engine Parts

A postgraduate student Anton Kazansky from South Ural State University (Chelyabinsk, Russia) is developing new technology for manufacturing gas turbine engine components. The young researcher became one of the winners at the UMNIK competition and received a grant to develop the project.

Gas turbine engines are used in the aircraft industry. Heat-resistant materials are needed to produce them; the mechanical processing of these materials is quite sophisticated and requires much time and effort. Industrial enterprises and mechanical engineers are interested in facilitating the production of gas turbine engine parts and improving their quality.

Anton Kazansky, a postgraduate student of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of South Ural State University proposed hybrid additive casting as a new method of manufacturing parts. The postgraduate student explained the relevance of this technology by increase labor productivity and reduce production costs.

“The essence of the additive casting method is to combine two technologies to create a new one. With the help of additive technologies and remelting of the workpiece in a ceramic form, it will be possible to obtain parts that do not need subsequent mechanical processing. According to our research, there are no complete analogs of this technology in the world," Anton Kazansky said.

The technology is tested by the student of South Ural State University and his scientific advisors, D.Sc., Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Viktor Guzeev, and Ph.D., Dean of the Aerospace Engineering Faculty Viktor Fedorov. They use computer modeling. The graduate student also received 500 thousand rubles as a grant to develop the project.

The young researcher is going to create an experimental sample of an engine component using the technology he proposed. This technology might be used at the leading enterprises which specialize in the manufacturing of gas turbine engine parts.

SUSU is a participant in Project 5-100, which aims to increase the competitiveness of Russian universities among the world's leading research and academic centers.
