ChTZ Gets Ready to Launch High Precision Czech Machinery

11 October 2012 (10:03)

October 11, 2012. Two processing units and a programmed numerical control lathe manufactured by the Czech company Kovosvit have been assembled at Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant (ChTZ) Advanced Technology Department, Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation’s press service reports.

In early October, one of the machines was launched by the Czech company’s after-sales representative in Yekaterinburg Igor Larin, who also provided training for the plant’s electric equipment team and mechanics. The other two mechanical treatment units are expected to be launched this week. Experts from the Czech Republic are coming here to do the manufacturing setup.

Kovosvit MAS delivered the first portion of this modern machinery onto the plant last year. This year, there have been a number of shipments as well. Eight up-to-date mechanical treatment units meant for manufacturing high precision engine parts (including those pertaining to the promising T Series) are operating now.

The 9th unit is being set up in the Precision Component Department now. This is a vertically integrated center meant for the simultaneous treatment of a billet along five coordinate positions. Before this was introduced, two turn-milling centers and a programmed numerical control lathe used to be employed for the process. Some young workers are now involved in the job as operators and fettlers: three of them (Dmitri Peplov, Sergey Gredasov, and Sergey Ryabchenko) have a college degree in Engineering, while Ivan Ugryumov and Ivan Kulikovskikh are now studying at South Ural State University.
