Press/Media: Research


Specialists of Tomsk Polytechnic University developed the largest robotic ultrasound tomograph in Russia, capable to test the quality of complex-shaped objects weighing up to 1.5 tons. The project was carried out by the order of D.V. Efremov Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus (a Rosatom company). Recently, a tomograph was assembled at the customer’s site in St. Petersburg, where the university specialists carried out all related pre-commissioning activities. The final commissioning is scheduled for February 2020. It will be used to test quality of the first wall details of a thermonuclear reactor that is currently being built in the south of France, at the Cadarache research center, as a part of the international project International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor – ITER.
