JSC "Kolchugino non-ferrous metals processing plant" prepares the highspeed tube-drawing machine DLP-2200 for startup in production operations. Due to the introduction of new high-tech equipment company will have an opportunity to improve drawing technology, increase tube production. Besides, development of salable thin-walled copper and copper-nickel tubes is intended.
"This is a general-purpose equipment capable of producing a wide range of products for power and automotive industry. It is used both in refrigeration and heat transfer systems, - says UMMC-NFMP investments and strategic development director Valery Kukushin. Machine will take over the main production load and replace the old mills. If we talk about the benefits of new equipment, it should be noted that the diameter of the «barrel» exceeds the parameters of old-fashioned equipment, and this will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the tubes quality and will increase the productivity. Possibility of working in automatic mode, competent planned workplace equipment, which includes modern remote control would reduce the share of staff hand-labour".
New tube-drawing mill has already produced its first experimental lot of the product, which was carefully monitored and sent to the customer. The specialists of JSC "Kolchugino non-ferrous metals processing plant" practice finalization of automatic control systems and management mode of operation of the mill sites to achieve high accuracy of their interaction.
