Small-sized gas turbine engine made on a 3D printer

The Russian Foundation for Advanced Studies on June 27, 2016 reported that he and the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Materials (VIAM) are conducting joint research on the creation of promising metal-powder materials and the development of additive technologies for the production of complex profile machine parts. For this purpose, on the basis of VIAM, a laboratory of the Foundation has been established and is operating, provided with the most advanced technical and technological equipment.
Last week, scientists were able to organize and successfully conduct a demonstration experiment to confirm the performance of a small-size gas turbine engine, whose components and assemblies are made of metal-powder compositions developed in conjunction with VIAM and additive production modes.

Such an experiment took place on the territory of our country for the first time. Previously, using additive technologies, it was possible to manufacture only individual parts of propulsion systems that were not subject to high loads. In the FPI and VIAM experiment, the engine as a whole participated.
“In general, we are satisfied with the result obtained by the results of the experiment, which can be called an intermediate one for the scope of work that we have planned together with VIAM. Obviously, we will continue to work together on the development of additive technologies in our country, in the direction of expanding the range of related materials, as well as creating our own, unparalleled world analogues, 3-D printing plants, ”said the Deputy Director General of FPI after the experiment. - Alexander Panfilov, Head of the Department of Chemical, Biological and Medical Research.
