Kolchugino (Vladimir region)
Kolchuginsky plant "Elektrokabel" (part of the "Cable Alliance Holding", which unites the cable assets of UMMC) purchased high-precision measuring instruments that allow you to control the quality of cable insulation. The amount of the contract was about 30 million rubles.
The new equipment was installed on extrusion lines in workshops No. 2 and No. 4, where cables for ships and rolling stock, control and communication cables are produced.
“The new devices were purchased within the framework of the target program“ Transition to a new level of accuracy in the production of conductive conductors for power and flexible power cables ”. First of all, this makes it possible to manufacture high-quality products, while not exceeding the established norm of constructive material consumption, as well as to facilitate the employee's control over the technological process, ”noted Dmitry Andrianov, chief engineer of EKZ JSC.
The equipment reads the diameter of the conductive core (TPZh), and then TPZh with insulation, thereby determining the uniformity and thickness of the coating throughout the entire length of the product. This allows you to exclude in the future the likelihood of insulation breakdown and increase the reliability of the cable throughout its entire service life.
The control is increased at the final stage of cable production. Measuring the diameter of the finished product with micron accuracy is especially important in cases where the product is intended for laying in confined spaces.
“2020, declared the Year of Quality at KhKA, has consolidated all efforts on the task of increasing the reliability of our products. At each of the plants of the holding, a multi-stage quality control functioned before, but since measuring instruments are constantly being improved from the point of view of technologies and automation, we do not miss the slightest opportunity for modernization, "said EKZ Director Evgeny Sukhodoev.
Currently, 65 meters are involved in various EKZ workshops, in 2021 similar devices will be purchased on the line for the production of sector conductors and twisted conductors.
