Currently, India uses foreign powerplants or makes their copies. Experts of Poeir Jets Private Limited Design Bureau, which is a subsidiary of Intech DMLS, said that they managed to create a quality turbojet engine MJE20. It is small and weights only 2.16 kg, providing the traction of up to 20 kg. This engine is planned to be used in small unmanned vehicles.

While MJE20 is tested, developers are working on more powerful models – MJE-40 and MJE-100. They also create SJE-350 engine with the traction of 350 kg, which can be used in fighter jets and helicopters.

Personal Fabricator was equipped with laser engraver

FABtotum has improved its Personal Fabricator 3D printer, equipping it with a laser head and updating software.

The new version of the device is called FABtotum Core. Now, 3D printer can be used for laser cutting and engraving. By the way, pyrogravure is capable of reproducing 255 color shades. Image processing and slicing are carried out automatically. In addition, users can customize many settings to get better results.

In addition to the laser head, FABtotum Core got a new work table and more efficient electronics, as the result, the 3D printer works faster and more effectively.
