Main Directions of Scientific Investigations

RL PMP leads scientific investigations in the area of processing materials by pressure in the follow­ing directions: developing scientific basis for pressure processing of compact and discrete materials with account for deformation-processes self-organizing principles; elaborating scientific grounds for re­sidual-stress redistribution in metal for plasticity-resource increase; developing basis for management principles of structure-forming processes during plastic metal working with intensive shearing defor­mation; working out scientifically grounded methods and technologies for obtaining bulky work-pieces of heavy-loaded assembly units of the automobiles by methods of plastic metal working; development and implementation of progressive methods of articles production from powders by method of contin­uous forming.


Provided Services

Working out the design-documentation on equipment and machining attachments for pressure-treat­ment processes of materials.

Writing flow-process charts for processing materials by pressure.

Developing 3-D models of the equipment and machining attachments.


Major Achievements

RL PMP maintains scientific cooperation with the following organizations: "Physical-Technical Institute of NAS of Belarus"; "Joint Institute of Mechanical Engineering of NAS of Belarus".

Major customers of RL PMP are the enterprises of the Ministry of Industry of Belarus: JSC Minsk Automobile Works"; JSC "Forge Works of Heavy Press Forming"; affiliated branch JSC "MAZ" "Minsk Spring Works", etc.

As part of RL PMP there functions a students’ scientific research bureau "Pressure Processing".
