Rimera purchased the first machines of that model in May 2012, as part of its machining and galvanizing shop modernization project. The new machines have shown themselves to advantage, allowing to retire obsolete equipment due to their higher capacity.
Lathes with drive tool heads STL-25-01 are new equipment for Izhneftemash. In addition to classic lathing they perform operations currently available only to milling systems. «This makes it possible to lathe and mill at the same time, so one machine produces a finished part. We shall save time previously spent on machine setup and in-process handling of parts, thus improving order lead time,» says Igor Mochalin, Izhneftemash Executive Director.
As the next phase of the sucker rod pump systems production modernization program, the plunger blank cutting equipment shall be transferred from the blanks and thermal treatment shop to the sucker rod pump systems shop, in order to reduce shop-to-shop handling.
