UAV from OPK "printed out" in one day

45
The United Instrument-Making Corporation showed at the Innoprom-2016 exhibition in Yekaterinburg, the first UAV in Russia completely manufactured using 3D printing technology. The creation of such a device takes about one day, and its components are assembled before the launch of the 15-20 minutes, reports press office enterprises.

UAV from OPK "printed out" in one day


“The new UAV is capable of carrying video equipment on board and performing various tasks related to the exploration and monitoring of territories. The set of airframe power elements (fuselage, wings and tail) is made as one unit with the vehicle's plating, which made it possible to achieve weight reduction, give the necessary rigidity to the structure, and also ensure high aerodynamic characteristics, ”the release said.

Sergey Skokov, Deputy General Director, OPK: “The use of additive technologies allows us to significantly speed up and cheapen the process of creating a new product and its mass production. The advantage of this aircraft is that any of its parts can be quickly manufactured even in field conditions. The UAV, developed by our Luch design bureau, successfully passed flight test design tests, proving the effectiveness of using 3D printing technology in this area. ”

According to him, “with the help of such devices the concept of group use of UAVs for solving various combat missions without regard to the risks of damage and loss of vehicles can be implemented.”

“Another feature of this drone is the location of the screw. Traditionally, it is located on the nose or in the tail section of the aircraft. In this case, the screw is located in the center of the apparatus, fastens on the beam itself and rotates around it. This solution offers advantages from an aerodynamic point of view, ”Skokov added.

According to the press service, “the drone is capable of working in a radius of up to 50 km. It is equipped with a domestic engine, weighs less than 4 kg, and the wingspan is 2,4 m. "

          Can you imagine the cost of a jet engine printed on a 3D printer, having at least an acceptable resource? We are talking about a "cheap" drone. So far, the "harsh reality" that the distinguished professor writes about turns out to be no less "harsh" cost of the final product. As it is annoying to some, but the technology of 3D printing is still in many ways similar to the technology of powder metallurgy. Something can be done, but it is not very applicable for creating serious structures ...

      The first question is how much

      I don’t know how much this one is, but I can roughly say how much the UAV from the Zala company costs (I use it myself periodically), in short a small 421-08 will cost over a million.
      The thing is that they are essentially monopolists, well, low competition in Russia therefore breaks prices.
      Example: two years ago we requested a commercial offer for the battery and the target load (camera), we sent the price of the battery -22t.r. apiece, + indicated the price for the catapult at 40t.r. and 24 for the catapult, but again we need money

      this year they made a request))) catapult 90t.r, battery -40t.r. That's how, how? what do they take such amounts from ???

      "and can a mere mortal buy it?" I think yes. all you have to do is register it and coordinate each flight with the TIR, submit the flight plan to the Zone Center.

      "The third question is where is the drone attack ???" among Americans, Jews ... hi

      You know ... does he remind you of anything? But I remember something. I remember this model. This "newest drone" one-to-one resembles the very model that was glued by Soviet children in aircraft modeling clubs throughout the country. So you can definitely get it. You can also assemble it yourself, even without printers. For an adult, not deprived of straight arms, this is one day of work, no more. Buy an engine online and start.
      Equipping this thing with controls is also as easy as shelling pears, aeromodelling sports will provide you with all the controls at fairly benign prices. In general, for a long time I have been waiting for the inevitable, surprised that it happened so late. How much, I wonder, did the authors of the "latest UAV" get out of the design budget? And how many fights for the new items themselves? Heh heh ...

      By the way, yes. This was not in the Soviet model. Apparently in order to install the camera in front. That's just all the other flight characteristics from her from there, from the children's clubs of the USSR, but what does this mean? And this means that the lightest breeze will take this thing wherever it wants. And her, most likely, you will not find it later, as always. And the engine for her on the printer can never be printed, just like the controls. So there’s a bit of imperfect weather, and there will be a unit with a printer, but without drones. It will be possible to print a glass on it. Before the wick, it’s good to drink some water for nerves. And after the wick - not some water ...

    it remains to print a 3D printer when they already say that the same 3D printers, the latest CNC machines, LCD monitors and other components of a developed economy are precisely manufactured and produced in Russia. And so, an extra bonus to the Chinese who made this printer a miracle and in the next brochure they will depict our drone as yet another confirmation of the miraculous nature of their device.

      Yes, we produce these printers! This is not a problem. And the classic layout, and quite original tripods, quite a workable machine. Only here it is impossible to print the UAV on it. Not a day, not a month. You can print only the body, the glider. And the stuffing does all this with a drone - the engine, controls, cameras. It is not printed at all. These gliders can be stamped with thousands in any way, even with printers, even with the old methods (it will be much better). All this crap is worth a penny, you can collect them in a matter of minutes, no more difficult than an automatic machine to collect. But the worker, and most importantly, the perfect apparatus ... not on this topic, definitely.

        For those who have never encountered the real production of technologically sophisticated products, 3D printers give rise to a sense of limitless possibilities. After all, these people have never, apparently, heard either about various methods of hardening the surface, or about the technology for manufacturing high-quality optics. There is much more that is unknown to these 3D printing fans. Because they did not try to do anything difficult with their own hands, and if they approached the machine or the melting furnace, it was exclusively for the purpose of tourist acquaintance.

      But is it necessary? the question is rather the presence of the absence of a large number of printers ... what prevents the delivery of hundreds of printers, for example? Most likely, everything depends on the cost price, not productivity. One person can serve more than one printer, so the price depends more on equipment and consumables hi

      As I understand it, the news is that they were able to make UAVs using the latest additive technologies. The value of the glider itself is in second place. The model of the airframe can always be changed, since there will be no problems with the organization of production! And about the field conditions was said, solely as an example.

    In our country there are about 40 types of various UAVs, but all of them without brains can only be considered as toys. The army represented by the General Staff has no idea how to use them, the general requirements are not formulated either for UAVs, or for the systems into which they should integrate, or to the weapons that should receive target designation from these systems. When Putin asked the T-50 general , about integration into the ESU TK system, he answered, and what is it. Therefore, in the next 20 years we will not have a 5-generation aircraft, gentlemen. We will have a good platform for such an aircraft. We will not have a new T-14 tank, the next generation. All these latest models of equipment, like others without integration into the information field, can neither be used effectively nor even be considered a new generation. These are old models in a new version and without brains. Amuse yourself with unreasonable illusions that hide behind some numbers of characteristics. All our technology is without brains, it is not able to interact with integrated information systems and does not receive information from them and does not transmit it to them. And we do not have such systems, there are not even requirements for them. An attempt to do something similar to them in the form of ESU TK failed. Most of the delitants do not even understand what it is, the High Command of the army also treats such people, but they, unlike others, need to be punished ... Everyone is silent and pretends that nothing happens .... This is a verdict. And only nuclear weapons do not disfigure our squalor and primitivism ...

    And where exactly to place those 3D printers, in a company link or in a battalion, the question is solved. There would be printers.
    And they will, no doubt.

    rather than expire motor resources and other resources.
    This is not the beeple that will be allowed to circle over the area day and night.
    It will be printed out in a day and it flies no more than a day.
