RUSAL announces the successful operation of a 3D-printed casing installed onto Yarilo satellite.
The thermoregulatory casing of the gamma-ray detector was developed at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and was produced at the Centre of Additive Technologies based on the Institute of Light Materials and Technologies from a new aluminum powder alloy. The detail printed in Institute of Light Materials and Technologies is an important part of the satellite, preventing overheating of the main equipment and ensuring its stable operation.
The temperature-regulating casing of the gamma-ray detector, produced on a 3D printer, has been installed onto one of the two Yarilo research satellites launched into space in 2020. This is a unique space project for the Bauman Moscow State Technical University in partnership with the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Nuclear Physics of Moscow State University. Yarilo satellites’ mission is to explore the sun and weather in space. The detail printed in ILM&T (Institute of Light Materials and Technologies) is an important part of the satellite, preventing overheating of the main equipment and ensuring its stable operation. The new RS-333 aluminum powder alloy developed […]
