Russian aero engine manufacturer looks to integrate AI into production process

25th June 2020 - 13:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rostec company United Engine Corporation (UEC) is working with Russian-Finnish industrial software specialist Zyfra to blend AI into production of Russian military aircraft engines.

The pilot project involving the Zyfra Industrial Internet of Things (ZIIoT) platform  is being implemented at the Salut plant that makes the Al-222-25 turbojet engine, which powers the Yak-130 combat-capable trainer jet (pictured).

ZIIoT monitors the manufacturing process and enables simulations in a  virtual environment. Among the features of the platform are an automated data entry workspace, central information storage, and an AI module. A database with key detail parameters and information on previous tests is used to train the AI software.

UEC and Rostec hope this will significantly reduce the number of live tests, increase the quality of the final product, and speed up the production process.
