The innovative technologies developed by JSC «Ufa Engine-Building Production Association» (UMPO), are presented at the Zhukovsky II International Forum «Technologies in Mechanical Engineering». Within the limits of the exposition of OPK "Oboronprom" visitors can see made by UMPO pre-production models of linear friction welding (LST) and pin gaskets.
LST technology is being implemented in JSC "UMPO" since 2008. Now installation by French ACB company for manufacturing of pre-production models works in the association. Application of LST technology allows to raise serviceability of aircraft engine components for repair due to possibility to weld a new blade at the place the defective one.
The technology of pin gaskets by method of electrochemical machining is developed in the frameworks of the federal program on key technologies elaboration necessary for engine-building development, the corporate public relations department of the company reports. JSC "UMPO" together with JSC "ЕСМ" created highly effective pin gaskets which reduce leak of air to 40 percent and are capable to reduce the expense of fuel for two percent.
