Beginning of Additive Technologies (site since 1997, Russian)
Prof. Igor Shishkovsky received his PhD from the P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Moscow (1992) and Doctor of Science from the Institute of Structural Macrokinetics and Material Science of the RAS (ISMAN, Chernogolovka, Moscow region, 2005). In the period from 1993 to 2013 years, Prof. Shishkovsky held positions (Senior Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Full Professor) at Sam GTU, SamGU, and MGTU – Stankin. He was an Invited Professor in the Diagnostics and Imaging of Industrial Processes (DIPI) Laboratory at Ecole Nationale d’Ingenieurs de Saint Etienne (2006 – 07 & 2010 – 11, ENISE, France). He is a co-author of 200 scientific papers, 10 books/chapters, and 8 patents devoted to additive manufacturing processes (Selective Laser Sintering / Melting, Direct Metal Deposition, 3D laser cladding, etc). His current research interests are additive manufacturing of functional parts, 3D bio-fabrication of implant and scaffolds, and laser treatment of materials.
The main goal of our research is to find prospective powder compositions for the fabrication of functional parts by the selective laser sintering/melting (SLS/M, LPBF) and 3D laser cladding processes (DED, DLM, LENS), and to study their properties and synthesis conditions. The results are expected to be utilized in medicine (orthopedic implants), the oil, gas, and chemistry industries (filter elements, catalytic membranes), in electrical engineering (piezo elements), and in auto, aerospace, and other branches of precision engineering. In other words, the applications encompass any industry where there are problems of modeling and RP&AM, which utilize powdered materials. The list includes: a) shapes cast from a sintered master pattern; b) functional customized parts and tools with unique physical characteristics.
The current studies at Prof. Shishkovsky group are directing on the combinatory approach had been realized for the first time into our researches on graded Metal (or Polymer) Matrix Composites (M/PMC) based on titanium, nickel or iron matrix ( OR, the whole range of polymer powders in case of PMC), with the layerwise increasing content of Al2O3, TiC, TiB2, WC etc. nanoceramics. In certain cases, we recommend additional thermal heating of the initial mix and/or substrate for temperature gradient reduction in the volume of the 3D part to decrease residual stresses and propensity to delamination. Developed us a combinatory method is an effective tool for detection and design of new alloys for additive manufacturing (AM), studying of phase-structural transformations in non-equilibrium conditions of 3D laser synthesis, and prediction of another perspective MMC and heat-resisting alloys (Genome of Material for Combinatorial Design and Prototyping of Alloys ) for aircraft & nuclear industries.

Course MA06243 – Fundamentals of Additive Technologies
Additive manufacturing (AM), also called 3D printing, has become an extremely promising technology nowadays. Unlike traditional manufacturing processes such as welding, milling, and melting that involve multi-stage processing and treatments, AM allows creating products with a new level of performance and shapes. Moreover, this technique allows to the production of prototypes rapidly and leads to reducing costs and risks. Another crucial advantage of the technology is the unprecedented design flexibility that lets us create samples of high quality based on different materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, composite materials, etc.
The main goal of this course is to represent the fundamental basis of different additive technologies to the students. In this course, a wide range of questions will be addressed, beginning from the process of chain and designing the structures up to various 3D printing technologies, materials and process parameters, benefits and drawbacks of AM approaches will be considered. During laboratory class, we will get acquainted with the additive technologies on various printing machines. Students will be able to create their own models, print them in metals, ceramics, and polymers, and also analyze the properties of the final samples. During this course, a complete cycle of production of samples using various 3D printing techniques will be explored both theoretically and practically.
Course MA03354 – 3D Bioprinting: Processes, Materials, and Applications
Additive manufacturing technology offers significant advantages for biomedical devices and tissue engineering due to its ability to manufacture low-volume or one-of-a-kind parts on-demand based on patient-specific needs, at no additional cost for different designs that can vary from patient to patient, while also offering flexibility in the starting materials.
The course starts with the introduction of tissue engineering (TE) and the scaffold-based TE approaches. A big part of the course will be devoted to the main processes of 3D bio-fabrication. We will describe the key stages in 3D bioprinting, which are the material choice (bio-materials and cell source), pre-processing (CAD and topological optimization), processing (the 3D bioprinting systems and processes), and post-processing (cell culture). The application areas of bio-printing, including tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, clinics and transplantation, pharmaceutics, and the future trends in bioprinting that will revolutionize the organ transplantation technology in the next decades will be discussed.
Course MA03249 – Industrial Robotics
Industrial robots are used to do repetitive actions in various different manufacturing processes. They are automated, programmable, and can be integrated with various external devices depending on the solving problem. Typical applications of industrial robots-manipulators include welding, painting, assembly, moving, palletizing, product inspection processes accomplished with high speed and precision.
The main goal of this course is to explain the principles of controlling robots and solve different automation tasks demanded in the industry. In this course, a wide range of questions will be addressed, beginning from the basics of robot teaching and controlling up to the integration of manipulators and external devices into a single system. During laboratory classes, we will get acquainted with modern industrial robots. Students will be able to control and teach robots for solving different tasks: from the simple movement of manipulators up to build an automated system for real manufacturing task.
