Rimera Group Pushes Forward with Comprehensive Modernization of Its Alnas Facility

Japan's Mori Seiki has supplied the second parcel of equipment for Alnas' automated manufacturing plant as part of an ongoing plant modernization program. The Japanese machines have three times greater performance than the six-spindle semiautomatic units used by Alnas, while ensuring much higher quality. The four machining centers with computer numerical control include eight turn & mill units. The launch of new machining centers will help to increase output by 20%.
«The arrival of the second parcel of Mori Seiki equipment from Japan completes yet another phase of our automated machining workshop modernization program. Now we consider procuring equipment for our machining operations with a view to expanding our product range to meet market demand,» says Sergey Sachenko, Alnas Executive Director, commenting on the project's progress.
The first lot of Mori Seiki machining centers were commissioned in December last year. This August Alnas plans to complete the necessary start-up procedures and launch its new German-made Laempe automated casting plant.
Alnas' production and social modernization program will require a total of RUR 2.47 billion of investments. Once the modernization of Rimera's Almetyevsk factory is complete, Alnas will be able to produce more than 9,500 submersible pump systems a year.
