In Far East, university robot to manufacture helicopter parts

12 Aug '15
Scientists at the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) have developed a robotic complex with ďa high level of artificial intelligenceĒ capable of manufacturing and treating sophisticated polymer composite parts of Russiaís Ka-62 civil helicopter, the FEFU website announced.

The parts are assembled into the end products at Progress, a large aircraft-building factory in the Primorsky region some 250km away from Vladivostok.

In 2013, the Vladivostok-based university won an $8.1m grant for the modernization of Progressí production processes. Progress allocated $4.4m, and the federal government added the rest.

The system, designed and built at FEFUís School of Engineering, is said to be able to apply hydro-abrasive technology to processing more than 250 types of parts up to six meters in size from 22 types of composite materials.

The developers claim that the system possesses enough artificial intelligence to be able to use its software and laser scanning capabilities to identify lines to cut parts along.

By the end of this year the system is expected to start operating at full throttle at the Far Eastern factory.
