The talk provides an outlook on the application of nanostructured (NS) materials produced by severe plastic deformation (SPD) techniques. NS materials are considered for use in the fabrication of miniature parts with dimensions from ~10 µm to ~10 mm. These parts have to meet high requirements on strength and precision in manufacturing. They can have a variety of applications, e.g. in elements of electric micro-motors for robots and drones, parts of internal combustion micro-engines for aircraft, gas turbine engines for electric generators for personal use; elements of micro cog-wheels, elastic parts of MEMS, medical implants, etc.
The report consists of three parts. The first part briefly analyzes the influence of NS materials production technologies based on SPD processing on their mechanical characteristics. Then, the features of small parts manufacturing by means of metal forming and cutting are discussed. Finally, examples of some small parts manufactured from NS materials are demonstrated.
