Stupino Metallurgical Company is also increasing its capacity by launching into operation a new plant. Just recently, high-temperature furnace, along with cooling installation was put into operation for the heat treatment of aircraft drives. Stage mounting installation changed commissioning, after which the equipment will be available for use. New installations meet all technological requirements and a high degree of accuracy — error when heating is only ± 7 degrees in the working temperature range of 690 to 1220 degrees Celsius. The volume of processed products is about 2 tons, soon expected to automate the loading and unloading of workpieces.
Subsequently, it is planned to supplement the furnace lines for precision cooling products regulated forced ostuzhivaniem in water, air, polymer solutions and rail manipulator, equipped with an automated control system.
