The State Scientific and Production Amalgamation of Powder Metallurgy of the NAS of Belarus demonstrates additive technologies for manufacturing complex shape parts on a three-dimensional computer model by sequential application of material. The developers say that these technologies can be successfully applied in the aerospace industry, in manufacture of aircraft engine parts or their components, and medical implants and tools, as well as in cooling systems for microelectronics. The amalgamation specialists also represent a new method of welding without melting the material, namely stirring friction welding.
The NPO Center of the NAS of Belarus demonstrates automated systems for plasma and waterjet cutting. Such innovative systems are designed for automated figured and linear cutting of metal and nonmetallic solid sheet materials.
The Institute of Technical Acoustics of the NAS of Belarus demonstrates portable apparatus for ultrasonic welding of polymers. The apparatus is intended for ultrasonic welding of details from polymers, including large-sized details. It has high welding speed, light weight and can be easily transported. Scientists are sure that such an apparatus can be successfully applied in engineering, agro-industrial complex and light industry.
On April 10, the professionals of the welding industry will gather for the 10th International Symposium "Effective Welding and Related Technologies", which is traditionally organized by the State Scientific and Production Amalgamation of Powder Metallurgy of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
The annual industrial and technological forum is held at the Football Manege on April 10-13, 2018. Except “Welding and Cutting”, there are also “Mechanical Engineering”, “LitMetExpo. Foundry and Metallurgy”, and “Corrosion Protection. Coatings” exhibitions within the framework of the forum. The exhibitions cover a wide range of industrial technologies in the field of machine building, metalworking, welding and cutting, foundry production, construction materials, and resource saving. More than 200 companies from 19 countries, namely Belarus, Belgium, Germany, Georgia, Israel, Spain, Italy, China, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, the USA, Turkey, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Finland, Switzerland, and Estonia, will take part in the forum.
