ATC of Rostec and Bauman University to create equipment for industrial-3D printing
News · May 27, 2022
Additive Technologies Center of Rostec State Corporation (ATC) and the Moscow Center for Laser Technologies (MCLT), a scientific and engineering center of Bauman Moscow State Technical University, have signed a cooperation agreement. The document which is aimed at creating equipment for industrial 3D printing was signed by Vladislav Kochkurov, CEO ATC and Alexander Grigoryants, CEO MCLT.
Under the project, Additive Technologies Center will test and pilot operation of a selective laser melting machine developed by specialists of MCLT. Prototypes of products manufactured on new domestic equipment will be tested for compliance with the technical characteristics required for aviation products. The next step will be the start of serial production of 3D printing equipment.

“We mainly produce for the aircraft industry. The creation of advanced aircrafts, such as Superjet 100 or MS-21 aircraft with domestic PD-8 and PD-14 engines, is unthinkable today without 3D printing technologies. Our task is to provide the appropriate capabilities, to offer aircraft manufacturers the best production solutions. The joint work with Bauman University is aimed at creating a new generation of domestic equipment for these purposes,” said Vladislav Kochkurov, CEO ATC.
The industrial prototype of the 3D printer is designed in order to grow objects up to 250x250x300 mm from metal powder materials: aluminum, bronze, titanium alloys and stainless steel.
