Uralvagonzavod’s Head Plant Gets New Pressure Equipment

February 27, 2013. The assembly of the modern 500-ton-strong double-point press manufactured by the German company ERFURT PKZZ began at the press department of Uralvagonzavod, Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s head plant. The new machinery costs 26m RUR, the corporation’s press service reports.

According to the press service, the technology that is used at these double-point presses makes it possible to stamp 3D parts with the help of deep drawing from the metal sheets. The launch of the ERFURT PKZZ equipment will improve considerably on the quality of goods that are needed for the corporation’s head plant’s railway carriage-assembling and mechanical assembly departments.

The old press was dismantled in December 2012, after which the assembly of the new machine began; this is being done by the workers from Uralvagonzavod’s press and mechanical repairs departments. The two teams are doing a multi-faceted task that comprises a range of operations from lifting some heavy nodes to the final assembly to the start-up and commissioning.
