On March 03 Kalashnikov Izhevsk State Technical University was visited by Thomas Müller, General Manager of Rübig Engineering (Austria). The aim of the visit – to get acquainted with the university and establish contacts in education and research & development. Moreover, Rübig Engineering has extensive experience in cooperation with Austrian universities, for instance, our partner – University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Wels campus.
In his address Prof. Boris Yakimovich, Rector of Kalashnikov ISTU pointed out that our university considers this visit as a perfect opportunity to establish and develop new business contacts and will gain experience of collaboration with an Austrian company in the field of implementation of particular projects.
In turn, Thomas Müller presented his company. Industrial equipment of Rübig has been successfully operating in more than 30 countries all over the globe and the company has been developing a number of unique technologies in protective and functional coatings on metals for over 20 years already. The company offers flexible solutions to its customers for the optimization of technological heat-treatment processes and strengthening machine parts, as well as the integration of new solutions into the existing area. Application of Rübig’s technologies and equipment provides the significant decrease in production costs.
It is clear that this research area is interesting for the faculties dealing with metal processing and equipment operation, such as Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Modern Technologies in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering and Metallurgy, as well as Faculty of Advertising and Design.
Both parties expressed their willingness to cooperate. Now Kalashnikov Izhevsk State Technical University will need to formulate the concept in this field and develop the activity program.
