UMPO youth present their projects at the international rally of machine builders

Nine young employees from UMPO have set off for the rally of machine builders at Lake Baikal. On July 19-30 as part of the second international industrial forum Engineers of the Future 2012, they will present their projects. The tent camp, hosting 1,500 Russian and foreign scientists, graduate students, and students, will put on master classes by heads of state corporations and the largest industrial companies. In this context, the young people from UMPO are planning to make their presentations and hope to bring nine prizes back to Ufa. Industrialists are faced with the task of creating high-tech production. And the young employees from UMPO are ready to state their case on this important issue. Dmitry Hraputsky, head of the company’s delegation, will present his work on implementing information technology in engine testing. Last year thanks to these efforts, the head of the testing workshop won the national ‘Golden Idea’ prize. Since then the young engineer has expanded the project with new ideas that significantly increase the operational lifespan of each engine. In particular, he suggests creating a mathematical model of the specific engine and its long-term identification in the operation process. In other words, now the lifespan of operational equipment will depend not on regulations of repair work, but on the technical condition of the engine in real time. Information-diagnostic provision allowing the analysis and forecasting of the engine’s condition will help extend the future of the engine.

“At the forum we are counting on the impressiveness of the topicality and competitiveness of our projects,” said a young UMPO delegate. “And we’re going to Irkutsk focussed on victory.”
