In the autumn of 2014, the State Corporation "Rosatom" won the grant of the Ministry of Education and began to develop the domestic one laser 3D-printer printing metal products by selective laser melting (SLM) technology while forming a pool of intra-company with strong competence in related areas: research and development, software development, manufacturing of supplies - it VNIIEF VNIITF, "Start", VNIINM and others.
In March 2015, the main marketing directions of additive technologies were defined and it started the development of metal 3D-printer.
The Strategic Council of Rosatom designated additive technology as one of the priorities of the development of scientific and technical activity in the non-power sector.
Product strategy named "Production of automated complexes of layerwise synthesis of metal parts with complex geometry made from powder compositions" was approved.
A pilot plant of an additive printing MeltMaster 3D 550 on the territory of the NGO "TSNIITMASH" was created.
A technical committee number 182 "Additive Technologies" was established, where JSC "Science and Innovation" is the co-chair.
In the Sverdlovsk region there was established a research and production consortium "Additive technologies." It consists of TVEL, Ural Electrochemical Integrated Plant, JSC "Science and Innovation", the corporation "VSMPO-AVISMA", Rostech, All-Russian Institute of Light Alloys, Ural Federal University, Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and other organizations.
A project of building a pilot plant for production of metal alloy powders by gas atomization was initiated.
The first 10 projects of national standards for additive technology were adopted. A project to create additive manufacturing medical implants was initiated.
The project of creating a digital manufacturing of precision products for the medical industry on the basis of additive technologies was designed.
A pilot double powder and double laser systems metal 3D-printer was constructed by Ural Electrochemical Plant (UEIP) and JSC "NPO" TSNIITMASH ".
State Corporation "Rosatom" choose "additive technology" as the strategic direction for the development of intra-enterprise and the internal Russian market.
Production of a lineup of 3D-printers was set and some tasks for enterprises SC "Rosatom" worth more than 190 mln.rub were completed.
Printing of experimental parts’ lots for VNIIEF and OKBM Afrikantov.
Mass production of 3D-printers RusMelt 300M and RusMelt 600M was organized.
Currently, five printers for the businesses of the State Corporation "Rosatom", and a one printer in the framework of commercial contracts were produced.
A compact gasifier-sample with increased power was designed by additive technologies’ means.
