Russian state conglomerate Rostec (Russian: Ростех) is investing almost 3 billion rubles ($44.7 million) to establish a specialized center to introduce advanced additive manufacturing to high-tech industries, the Rostec group announced on last Friday.

The V.V. Chernyshev Center of Additive Technologies (CAC/ ЦАТ), which is now being built within the complex of the Moscow Machine Building Enterprise (MMP), is established by Rostec in collaboration with three members of its aviation cluster: United Engine Corporation (UEC), Russia Helicopters, Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies JSC (KRET). The center will provide customers with a full range of services: from design development to batch production and product certification. The goal of the CAC is to shorten the product-to-market time frame for new high-tech products.

Rostec group notes that the introduction of additive technologies is one of the most dynamically developing areas of digital production. It allows to reduce numbers of parts for design, to halve production time and to scale back the price of parts by 44%, weight by 25%.

"Industrial 3D printing is becoming one of many indispensable attributes of modern industry," said Alexander Nazarov, Rostec's industrial director of the cluster. "We see the high potential of this technology and introduce it into our production practice."

"For example, we produce about three tons of additively manufactured parts every year in UEC. Our plan is to widely apply additive technologies in the serial production of promising Russian gas turbine engines which are scheduled to be licensed by 2025-2030. The goal of a specialized center is to accelerate additive technologies' adoption in aerospace, medicine and automotive industries."

The revenue of this center is anticipated to achieve 13.2 billion rubles ($197 million) between 2018 and 2027, with gross sales earnings over 3.6 billion rubles ($54 million). The first pilot batch of parts is expected to be manufactured in the middle of 2019.

"The center will take orders not only from Rostec group, but also from third-party clients, including foreign companies. In the future, the center will become a leading serice provider in the field of additive technologies for all customers," the state corporation said.

Established in 2007, Rostec comprises about 700 enterprises, which together form 14 holding companies: eleven in the defense-industry complex and three in civil sectors. Headquartered in Moscow, the company specializes in consolidating in strategically important companies, mainly in the defense and high-tech industries. Rostec’s organizations are located in 60 constituents of the Russian Federation and supply goods to over 70 countries worldwide.
