UAC: a “virtual design bureau” has been created to speed up the task of resuming production of the Tu-160

34
Alexander Konyukhov, Vice-President of the United Aircraft Corporation, told on the company's website about the measures being taken to accelerate work aimed at resuming the production of the Tu-160 bomber.




“In order to speed up the task of pre-production and the manufacture of the Tu-160 aircraft, work has been launched to issue electronic design documentation for the aircraft’s glider without making changes to the glider’s design requiring static tests,” the newspaper quotes Konyukhova Look.

According to him, “the experience of interaction of several design bureaus is the first step towards the creation of a“ virtual design office of the KLA ”capable of solving complex tasks in the future to create promising aircraft in a short time.”

"For the first time in stories domestic aviation the engineers of almost all the leading schools - Tupolev, Sukhoi, Yakovlev, Beriev, Mikoyan - are assembled and work in the same team, ”the press service quotes the words of the deputy general director of Tupolev, Valery Solozobov.

The release of the corporation notes that “designers in different parts of Russia are busy digitizing various parts of the airframe and the wing of the Tu-160. The task is to create about 500 thousand drawings in 3D format in modern programs, complete the design and prepare them for industrial production. ”

According to the press service, “Digit” will help to drastically speed up the manufacture of components and aggregates of the “strategist” at modern machine-tool machining centers. ”

The corporation also reported that “the processing and storage of information on the project is carried out in a modern data processing center launched at Tupolev.” The center's power is 50 teraflop, one of the largest in the Russian industry.

      It is healthy when engineers from leading schools are assembled in one team and can work not only on this aircraft but also much more, can not be imagined !!! wink

        500 of thousands of drawings ... mother dear, it's hard to imagine how many engineers worked on the drawing boards day and night ... winked
        Digitized drawings will save time in the production of parts on CNC machines. Well, we wish our engineers success in their hard work. hi

          The task is to create about 500 тыс. drawings in 3D format
          This phrase alarmed. At one time he worked in one design bureau in the era of transition to 3D design. So I will say - this is a completely different way of thinking. Not from a drawing to a part, but from a three-dimensional model of a device, layout, part - to drawings. In older frames, a brain explosion was regularly observed, followed by the removal of the accumulated thinking patterns. Then, everything fell into place, sets of drawings were produced only for production, and the product was initially created at the level of models and assemblies. And the "Draloscope" safely rotted away in the corner.

          So, what am I doing. Even the figure of 500000 drawings suggests that they would not have left the drawings as they look on paper, without creating real 3D models. Eat, you know, doubts ... Or does old age come?

            In theory, from 2-dimensional drawings, it is quite possible to automatically build a 3D model. They work with an existing project, and it is in two-dimensional projections.

              that's right. But the main idea for sure is that it is much better to work with digitized two-dimensional drawings, at any time you can print any number of drawings and give them to production. And three-dimensional modeling is most likely necessary to verify the collectability of structures, as well as to model loads. The whole problem is that young designers know software but do not cope well with theory, but with older frames it is vice versa. but when there is well-coordinated work between them, then a good symbiosis comes out ...

      Well, actually, this has long been a well established practice. Even under the leadership of Beria after the war, under separate projects from employees of enterprises and design bureaus from several ministries, they organized a single structure, not only in the virtual, but in real life. The bulk of the fruits of these developments used Khrushchev. Although this system was covered up almost immediately after the murder of Beria.

    Finally, real gestures on the Tu-160 are indicated.

      DON'T MAK ANYONE
      probably because it didn’t lie in one bedside table, and at the beginning they conducted a study where information is located, how it is located, who will do what, where the parts for production will be delivered from, the whole country in Soviet times worked for the defense industry and for each product all individually. . . the time has come The next details for the production have been reported. . . or you need to voice every action to everyone, but what about the MILITARY SECRET.

      here is a small excerpt from an article that explains a lot about the rush, although it’s already so clear and don’t understand why blame others right away:

      - The tendering mechanism has pros and cons. An open dialogue with suppliers will surely be of interest to you and them. Planning to hold conferences for mutual exchange of views?

      - I agree. It is important to correctly select the equipment in accordance with the specified specifications - with a certain cutting speed, frequency and even dimensions. Based on this, at least three options of suppliers are considered, and then consultations are held with them, working trips to enterprises for inspecting the production of machine tools. Pre-study the experience of operating machines, looking for feedback on the advantages and disadvantages. This is a fairly large and serious work - after all, there may not be a second chance at the technological re-equipment of the plant.

      Laser cut

      - Is it possible to expect know-how in the production of Tu-160М2?

      - Today the task is to reanimate new technological functions in the field of aviation and helicopter construction. In this direction, we are working closely with VIAM, the institute for the creation of new materials, and with the Moscow NIAT and KNIAT, which were originally created in the USSR to develop regulatory technological and technical documentation. The goal is the introduction and certification of laser technologies that will help to get away from manufacturing a fairly complex tooling. Laser method could process a number of units and parts for the aviation industry of the Russian Federation. Laser welding does not require vacuum installations and is carried out under local protection with an inert gas.

      - Until now, this has not happened?

      - In aviation, only technologies proven over the years are always used. They should be thoroughly tested, checked. On the ground, you can stop and repair, but you can not go wrong in the sky. Therefore, in the industrial production of laser technology come gradually. Research begins with the testing of samples, then the technology is transferred to prototype parts and then replicated in industrial production.

        But what about the MILITARY SECRET.

        There is not any military secret that Russia didn’t immediately switch to the S-300 due to the Stepanokerst massacre. There is not any military secret that a third of the Swans were saved. There is not any military secret that one hundred and sixties are partially subtle and there is not any military secret that the hundredth invisible killers

      In fact, in Ukraine, the Tu-160 was based in Priluki.
      19 aircraft remained in Priluki after the collapse of the USSR. 10 sawn under the supervision of the United States, one remained in Ukraine, the remaining 8 managed to save Russia by taking them as a debt for gas in the 90s. Now all these 8 aircraft are modernized and fly.

      On a video take-off to the transfer of one of the cars from Priluk to Russia.

        Why did Gorbachev, when he knew that the Union would collapse, or Yeltsin, when they signed the Bialowieza Agreements, not give an order to urgently transfer the most valuable and expensive military equipment to the territory of the RSFSR? And the conclusion of the maximum number of equipment and, if possible, warehouses and equipment?

      It is important - that the exchange of information between different cities included in the virtual KB, could not be intercepted by the enemy
      intelligence service. Encrypt traffic with at least a 256-bit key. Recently, the FBI managed to crack the cryptographic protection of an Apple smartphone, despite the fact that the company did not seem to report security codes.

      Here, quick digitization will not work, an exact calculation is needed here, it is a complex product PLANE, safety and reliability in everything. And you are a quick digitization.

      It's impossible - it's too difficult to build 3D models from a drawing (I'm doing this myself) - often, since everything was built by hand according to the principle "here the line is thicker, here we will shift the axis a little, here we will add a hundredth radius, etc., etc." you have to invent.
      These are analogous deviations on analog machines, no one takes into account the limits of permissible errors, and when each line is an object of calculation (the size, conjugation, auxiliary plane and many other interconnections can be attached to it) the program just goes crazy - here and it’s necessary to correct this matter.
      And with aviation parts one must think all the more ...

        There is one more serious point. A part designed "from scratch", taking into account the capabilities of the processing equipment and optimization of the technical process for CNC processing, this is one thing, without such consideration - it is quite another, you will have to solve a lot of issues, from technological to logistics, before you get a part with the given parameters, in including the price and production time. Surely unique equipment will have to be created. Therefore, it is done by common efforts, the amount of work is enormous, and "file revision" will not work here.
        But the thing is necessary, we wish you success)

        But for me everything is the other way around, from the drawings of those old years built "by hand", three-dimensional models were obtained without flaws, assembly with minimal errors, there were practically no errors. By the way, the T-50 seems to have been created entirely in XNUMXD, so progress is evident ...

    All this information leads to the idea that the restoration of production of the TU-160 is really a breakthrough in the technological plan. It is not only the need to maintain and increase a certain amount of TU-160, but first of all prepare for the production of the new PAK DA aircraft. And there is a lot of money here, but it’s very possible to lose enormous resources by creating a new aircraft without such a real preliminary check. You start a new, more positive assessment of this project. And although, skeptics pointed to some controversial points (changing May geometry wings, engines, a large reflecting surface ...), it seemed to me that the number of dissenters umenshitsya.Neploho significantly to these efforts to cooperate with the developers of civilian aircraft.
