Kolchugino (Vladimir Region)
Kolchuginsky Elektrokabel (part of the Cable Alliance Holding, which unites the cable assets of UMMC) invested about 90 million rubles in the development of the production of cables for rolling stock and aircraft construction. p>
The purchase of four lacquers allowed expanding the range of cable and wire products (PPC). The new equipment is designed to apply varnish on the textile braids of cables and wires.
“During operation, even when laid fixed, cable and wire structures come into contact with the material of the aircraft or locomotive body, therefore, damage is possible due to abrasion of the outer cover. Applying a varnish layer to the braid minimizes this risk, "said Anatoly Barinov, chief technologist of EKZ JSC.
The productivity of the new equipment is 1.7 times higher than that of its predecessor, due to the additional function of convection of the air flow inside lacquer ovens. This reduces the time and improves the drying quality of the varnish coating, which determines the strength of the textile braid and the service life of the gearbox. For rolling stock products, it is at least 30 years, for onboard wires - at least 15 years.
The need to expand production capacity has arisen due to the increased demand for structures for rolling stock, as well as due to the development of a new position in the nomenclature of the plant - wires for aircraft construction.
Elektrokabel is one of the few Russian plants that has a resource base for the production of almost all groups of gearboxes. The enterprise has historically developed as a universal one, which is why we manage to maintain a leading position even in the most difficult times for the economy. In a highly competitive environment, it is important not only to keep track of the latest trends in the gearbox market, but to anticipate the most promising niches by offering improved designs ”, - stressed the director of EKZ JSC Evgeny Sukhodoev.
