According to PAP PKN Orlen spokeswoman Joanna Zakrzewska, recently produced in the 3D printing process, the pump rotor is currently undergoing tests that began at the end of March on the MEK-TOL solvent degreasing system for lubricating oils.
According to the spokesperson of PKN Orlen "both the commissioning and the existing work of the pump run smoothly". – Tests under industrial conditions will last until June – Zakrzewska explained. She added that "the examination of the possibility of using 3D printing technology for the production of rotating parts of production machines" was completed.
