The Next Evolution: Unique Method to Reduce Aircraft Weight Developed at NUST MISIS

MOSCOW, November 26, 2018 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — MOSCOW, November 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The use of bionic design and additive technologies can reduce aircraft weight by almost a ton Russian scientists and engineers from NUST MISIS have managed to find a way to reduce the weight of aircraft engine parts by 20%. According to experts, this weight reduction is fundamental for the aircraft, becoming a ton lighter. This weight reduction was made possible with the introduction of a new manufacturing technology-a bionic bracket by laser extension from the powder of a Russian titanium alloy. A pilot batch of the innovative brackets has already been successfully tested.
