On May 6, 2021, the Belarusian-Russian University opened the academic and experimental laboratory “Additive Technologies in Production".
The event was attended by Deputy Chairman of the Mogilev Oblast Executive Committee Valery Malashko, Head of the General Directorate for Education of the Mogilev Oblast Executive Committee Andrey Zablotsky, Rector of the Belarusian-Russian University Mikhail Lustenkov, faculty members and students of the university.
The opening of the laboratory was connected with launching a new program of study “3D Technology for Product Manufacturing”.
The state-of-the-art equipment of the laboratory was purchased with the budgetary funds of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.
The laboratory is equipped with instrumentation needed to manufacture polymer products using additive technologies and to study their mechanical properties: two 3D printers VSHAPER and Formlabs Form 3, a Medit T3103D scanner, a COF-01 friction coefficient meter, a TBP-DM Shore hardness meter, a computer-controlled pendulum impact tester XJ-50Z, a Kason WDW-1 testing machine.
The laboratory “Additive Technologies in Production” will help students acquire knowledge in the field of design and manufacture of products using three-dimensional technologies. Besides, the laboratory facilities will be used for conducting research in this area.
