Uralvagonzavod installs 3D printer for printing foundry equipment

60
Uralvagonzavod Corporation is completing the equipping of a new technological line for the production of foundry equipment. The highlight of the production will be a large-format industrial 3D printer that prints sand molds and cores, reports bmpd with reference to the 3Dtoday resource.


Uralvagonzavod installs 3D printer for printing foundry equipment


We no longer have to design and manufacture expensive casting equipment for experienced, new products and complex castings of small series. It will be enough for the designer to develop the 3D model of the required casting, according to which the mold will also be designed and manufactured in 3D. Finished rods will go to the foundry. In addition, to solve the problems of the corporation, they can be transported to any distance
told the deputy chief metallurgist of the enterprise Sergey Martynenko.



According to the press service of the corporation, “an industrial 3D printer is capable of printing molds and rods up to 1800 × 1000 × 750 mm, or fragments of larger products, the production of two tons of products takes about sixteen hours.”

Currently, Uralvagonzavod engineers are completing installation and preparing for the commissioning of new equipment.

“This is not the first professional additive system used by the Ural enterprise. Since 2015, the Fortus 3mc 400D printer manufactured by Stratasys Corporation, which prints with polymer filaments, has been operating here. In particular, the device was used in prototyping individual nodes of a promising tank “Armata”, ”the material says.



In the future, the company plans to supplement the list of equipment with equipment for optical or laser 3D scanning, as well as an X-ray tomograph for carrying out defectoscopy of cast products.

The name of the printer is not indicated: “it can be assumed that the equipment was acquired around sanctions, since the description and technical characteristics point to the S-Max 3D printer manufactured by the American company ExOne,” notes the resource.

I also forgot to add to professions balancing, no robot can replace a person here.

    Professor.
    Import substitution primarily concerns segments where manufacturers are our likely opponents and especially those who are conducting a sanctions war against Russia.
    Does Israel fall under these signs?
    If not, then you have nothing to worry about.
    As for the production equipment, even in the Soviet period it was purchased, including in the interests of the military-industrial complex in Western countries, NATO members and perfectly ensured the defense capability of the Soviet homeland.
    And the bookmarks embedded in the equipment (in order to reduce the initial qualities and parameters) were successfully discovered and stopped.

Then learn normal schoolchildren and students, incidentally throwing into science 5 times more than now. Then send young specialists to the factories, simultaneously throwing in their modernization an order of magnitude more than now. And after that, we may not have to buy 3d printers in Israel or in aliexpress when developing a valve

        The accuracy is certainly higher, but again, the equipment, the mold for the models pays off with a large series (from thousands) of castings. For example, the cost of a block of ceramic molds for castings with a total weight of 15-18 kilograms is $ 15 and this is only the cost of the mold without metal!

          I am not talking about that. There is a difference, and significant. The article on forms and rods is mainly for experimental and small-scale production. Lost wax casting ("crust") is another method. From the word at all. There are no rods. The form is solid, regardless of the configuration of the product.
