The launch of the upgraded shop will see Alnas retiring more than 20 percent of its six-spindle semiautomatic machining centers. The company’s further plans include replacing every machine of the type inside the shop.
A total of RUB 450 mln. has been earmarked for the modernization program, which has run since 2011.
“The upgrade of the automated shop in the company’s main building is a phase in a comprehensive program of large-scale modernization of the manufacturer’s production and social services. The design and engineering of the main building will be completed this year, and a Laempe plant will be installed and started in the casting shop. As regards the social services, the first apartment building under the corporate housing project is due to be commissioned,” Rimera Group General Director Olga Naumova commented.
The first four Mori Seiki systems, worth a total of more than RUB 100 mln. were put into operation in 2012. These comprise eight turn-milling centers. The first batch of equipment reached contract performance within a short time: output was recorded at 40 to 50 parts per hour.
As part of the contract with the Japanese company, the personnel at the Almetyevsk pump maker underwent training required for operating the imported equipment.
