MSTU «STANKIN» hosted a meeting of the Ministry of industry and trade of Russia on development of the tool industry

On June 20 in MSTU "STANKIN" was held a meeting of the Ministry of industry and trade of Russia on the development of the tool industry. The meeting was attended by more than 40 leading domestic manufacturers of tools, organizations of the military and industrial complex, specialized research centres, the largest industry associations - the Union of machine builders of Russia and the Association “Stankoinstrument”.

One of the key results of the meeting was the decision of the participants to submit a proposal to the Ministry of industry and science of Russia on the creation of the all-Russian centre for independent certification tests of cutting tools made of hard alloys, ceramics and super hard materials. The creation of the Center will allow domestic tool enterprises to significantly increase the volume of products and reduce the period of import substitution of the tool, especially in enterprises of strategic industries of Russia.
The implementation of the project will be possible thanks to the integration of the efforts of leading industry research and technology laboratories and centres – SEC of MSTU "STANKIN" and JSC "VNIIINSTRUMENT" with a strong infrastructure base and competencies for testing, R & D implementation throughout the life cycle of the tool.

At the end of the event, the meeting participants were able to assess the technological potential of SEC of MSTU "STANKIN". In particular, they saw the capabilities of laboratories of micro-processing technologies, technologies of manufacturing and control of cutting tools, coating technologies and heat treatment, where during the tour a small batch of end mills was manufactured for the industrial partner of the University.
