His presentation was part of the panel discussion on “Advanced manufacturing technology to build factories of the future” and was centered on materials science and technology to ensure the creation of a digital production workflow in the Energy sector.
“The industrial production printers for printing three-dimensional metal products has a great future, and not only in the nuclear industry”, said Alexey Oak. “The need for medical institutions in our country only in the endoprosthesis, which can also be produced by the 3D-printer, can be measured in the order of up to a hundred thousand parts per year. The market can be estimated at a figure of more than 8 billion rubles. And this is only one direction of the use of products made by three-dimensional printing. Creating a new generation of 3D-printers, which will be able to print not only metal but also composite products, further expand the range of possible applications of this technology. ”
