KULZ to Make Friction Drives

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 30, 2016. Kamensk-Uralsky Foundry Plant/KULZ (a member enterprise of Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation) is about to start making friction drives for special-purpose vehicles as part of the state-run import substitution program, the company press service reports.

‘Our machine-building plants used to get these in Ukraine, but now KULZ is getting ready to start manufacturing the drives on site. We are busy renovating our existing facilities and getting new ones, buying digitally controlled treatment units, hydraulic presses, batch mixing units, and thermal treatment appliances. Some of the machines are co-funded by the government, some of them are fully paid for by the plant,’ the press service says.

For one, a new batch-mixing unit supplied by Moscow-based Konsit-A replaced the old German unit at the metal-ceramics department in May. The new equipment is considerably more productive and impressively greener than its obsolete counterpart.
