The RUSNANO’s FIEP Network of Nanocenters Has One of the Country’s Most Productive Titanium 3D-Printers
The TEN AT contract company of the TechnoSpark Group (part of the investment network of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs) has acquired and put into operation an industrial 3D printer using selective laser fusion technology for metal printing. It is among the most productive in Russia.
After setting up and printing test parts, the new printer has been connected to the TechnoSpark’s single digital control system for contract manufacturing and is ready to fulfil orders for products made from titanium, steel, aluminum, and heat-resistant alloys. The printer is capable of running on both imported and domestic raw materials.
The new printer has increased the fleet of additive technology at the disposal of TEN AT. “The expansion of capacity is due to the growing demand for the production of one-off and serial products—TechnoSpark’s contract companies fulfil orders for companies in the medical, instrument-making, automotive, aviation, oil and gas, engineering, and other industries,” said Oleg Lysak, CEO of TechnoSpark.
The Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs was established in 2010 in accordance with Federal Law No. 211-FZ “On reorganization of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies.” The Fund aims to develop the innovative infrastructure in the sphere of nanotechnology and implement the educational and infrastructure programs already started by RUSNANO.
The supreme collegial management body of the Fund is the Supervisory Board. Under the Fund’s Charter, the competence of the Supervisory Council, in particular, includes the issues of determining the priority directions of the Fund’s activity, as well as its strategy and budget. The Chairman of the Fund’s Executive Board, the collegial management body, is the Chairman of the Board of Management Company RUSNANO LLC Sergey Kulikov.
