Interests in inventing:

  • Electromagnetic devices
  • Interaction between magnetic field and liquid metals
  • Magnetic field effect on crystallization processes

Main invention:

  • Magnetohydrodynamical device for stirring liquid aluminium and its alloys in the foundry furnaces and bringing them out of the furnaces
  • Automatic soldering of pressed radio equipment schemes

All inventions are connected with the interaction between electromagnetic field and liquid conductor (usually metallic). The essence of the invention reduces to the application of the interaction consequences to the production process.
