On the 30th of August 2017 V.V. Murashkin, the Director of Central Special Design Bureau of OAO EPK Samara, was assigned a title “An honorary engineer of the Russian Federation” by the decree No. 405 of the President of the Russian Federation from 30th of August 2017 “About rewarding state awards for merits in the field of engineering”.
EPK’s Central Special Design Bureau unites knowledge of all design departments, implements common design policy, tests and measures bearings, develops and introduces design and reference documentation.
Currently the specialists are in the process of developing and mastering more than 40 new types of bearings together with scientists from Samara State Aerospace University named after S.P. Korolev.
Integrated bearings for the last generation air-craft engines are executed with application of bimetal materials: working part of bearings is made from normal steel, the other part is made from material used in air-craft engines. Integrated bearings are a part of engine, elements of low and high pressure turbines which help to reduce weight of a product.
Specialists of SCDB design angular bearings with ceramic balls for latest aviation and space engines. Products are designed for the newest aviation equipment, updated line of aircrafts manufactured by United Aviation Corporation.
EPK improves heat resistant steel for bearings. For example, technology of hot plastic steel grade – VKS (VIAM) deformation was developed in order to get blanks. Besides there is a new technology of heat treatment of the parts. Composite materials (ceramics) increase life of a bearing in condition of oil starvation at high loads, can maintain wide range of temperatures, provide less weight of construction, stable geometric dimensions and ability to work in aggressive environment.
