Serial production of state-of-the-art, environmentally clean, precision electrochemical machines for manufacturing components from any metal or alloy. Production of tools and details with high productivity and low operating costs
The electrochemical machines that this project have been designed for nanometer-precision processing of virtually the entire spectrum of metals, including hard alloys and nanostructured metals. The technology used in the machines is comparable to that of the world’s leading manufacturers and in some parameters—performance and cost of operation—superior. In addition, software that Russian engineers have developed expands signifi cantly the units’ surface machining capabilities. The units are extremely versatile: they can be used to produce implants and surgical instruments and to manufacture complex parts from high-strength materials for aircraft engines and power turbines.
Production machines of this class have almost no presence in Russia today. Indeed, in 2008 they were less than 0.1 percent of the world market in the precision machinery industry.
The project will employ cutting-edge developments from Russia’s electrochemistry institutes and put modern surface machining technology to work in high-tech industries: microelectronics, precision instruments, aerospace, energy, medicine, automotive, and other industries.
