The Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant of the Russian Helicopters holding (part of the Rostec State Corporation) has completed an investment project to create a modern, high-performance blank and stamping production. In the course of its implementation, a major overhaul of building 64 was completed with a new layout of production areas.
The project was aimed at the development of new technologies in the field of pressure processing, the introduction of non-dehydrating technologies for the manufacture of sheet parts, reducing the labor intensity of production, as well as reducing the share of manual labor.
“The production capacity of the modernized blank and stamping production is planned to reach the design capacity in the second half of 2020,” noted the managing director of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant Leonid Belykh . “Modern pressing, cutting, molding equipment, as well as warehouse systems have been purchased and put into operation. Outdated equipment Overhaul of building 64 was carried out, a modern blank-stamping workshop was created. The reconstructed building created comfortable working conditions for the employees of the enterprise: new ventilation equipment was supplied. In general, based on the results of the investment project, it is planned to reduce labor intensity by 34.7% and cost by 26.9% ”.
After the project is completed, the sheet metal parts are molded on a modern numerically controlled elastoforming press, which was put into operation in June 2019. For him, the development of the nomenclature of parts for the new Mi-171A2 / A3 and Ka-226 helicopters has already been completed. In addition, to ensure the highest quality products, in October 2019, a longitudinal-transverse covering press was put into operation for shaping sheet parts (skins), which combines the functionality of several covering presses previously used in production. Modern pressing equipment will replace obsolete and physically worn out hydraulic presses and falling hammers, which in turn will ensure the safety of the production process.
To transfer the nomenclature of parts to new equipment in the design and technological department for blank and stamping production, a sheet stamping process modeling bureau was created, which, using modern software, simulates the shaping process and develops new equipment made of delta wood for the technology of parts production on new equipment.
In order to ensure the storage of new equipment for presses, an automated warehouse was put into operation. Specialized software helps the warehouse worker keep records of the tooling and determine its location: in the warehouse or directly on the presses, keep records of storage and delivery of sheet metal.
