Novocherkassk, 18 APR 2019 Today at EPM-Novocherkassk electrode plant (part of EPM) held a ceremonial commissioning of the modern complex robotic manufacturing nipples for graphite electrodes. The event is timed to the 65th anniversary of the plant.
The cost of the project amounted to approximately RUB 200 million project is part of the investment programme of the Group of EPM to expand production capacity and improve product quality.
Modern complex for the production of the nipples will allow you to perform the machining at a higher level, and increase the accuracy of the geometric dimensions of the nipple in 5 times — up to 0,02 mm.
In the composition of complex robotic world-class equipment, including lathes ROMI and robot manipulators, the latter is used for high-precision operations of international companies, such as Apple, Boeing, Toyota, General Motors, BMW, Ford, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, and many others. The robot of the new generation to move cargo lifting capacity of 500 kg and has a compact design, superior performance, has a unique design capture products and increased working space. The equipment also includes a special automated system for the precise measurement of the geometry of products that will ensure end-to-end ultra-precise control of the geometry of all of the produced nipple.
The Deputy Governor of the Rostov region Mikhail Tikhonov said that the Novocherkassk electrode plant is one of the backbone enterprises of the region. The production uses the most modern technology, including to reduce environmental impact and increase energy efficiency.
Group CEO of EPM Victor Nechuyatov said: “We are confident that this project will be a big step forward in improving the quality of our products and meet the needs of our customers.”
Managing Director of JSC “EPM-NEZ” Eugene Churikov said: “a Key condition of the program of modernization of production facilities is the use of the most modern Russian and foreign equipment that meets the highest international standards of environmental and energy efficiency”.
Previously to the 65 anniversary of the plant opened a photo exhibition
