Metallurgical production division is capable to produce primary metal products for various industries according to individual requirements of our customers. Our in-house metallurgical sector includes the following melting facilities: DC Electric-Arc Furnace (Model ДППТУ-20), AC Electric-Arc Furnace (Model ДС6Н-1), DC Electric-Arc Furnace (Model ДППТУ-1), Induction-Arc Furnace (Model ИСТ-1), Nonferrous Melting Furnaces (Models СМД-0,6С and ДМ-5). A lost-foam casting line was recently installed in the metallurgical shop for small-batch and large-batch production of shaped castings, and required lost-foam foundry patterns are developed and produced right here in our production shop. The main primary metal products supplied by our company are forged components and forged-and-machined components in 70 grades of steels and alloys, mainly in tool-steels. We produce components in the following range of overall dimensions: shafts in diameters up to 700 mm and lengths up to 10000 mm; plates in widths up to 1300 mm; rings in diameters up to 2400 mm, weights up to 9 ton. Necessary testing equipment for mechanical properties testing, US-testing acc. to GOSТ24507-80 and other relevant standards are also available. On our presses we employ a four-die forging device which serves to implement radial forging technique in the primary metal production process. When forged in this device, an ingot evtl. a billet is reduced from all four sides simultaneously at each press stroke. This technique provides for intensive stretching of a component being forged, which results in a higher reduction ratio.
On the basis of a project developed by Tyazhpressmash in cooperation with TSNIITMASH in 2016 a centrifugal casting machine РМЦ1000 was built and installed at our premises. The machine is capable to produce cast parts which can be used in two ways: as a component of cast products or as an initial component in production of forged thick-walled pipes and rings of various sizes and shapes. Cast parts produced on the РМЦ1000 are intended to manufacture a large variety of hollow products in wide range of sizes which can be used to build critical components for nuclear-, energy producing-, petrochemical- and other industries.
Our efforts are concentrated on introduction of innovative technologies, upgrading of our production facilities and revamping of equipment used in the metallurgical production sector since this is the best way to increase forged metal production volumes, reduce production costs and improve quality of our primary metal products.

Machining and Assembly division Our machine shops are equipped with specialized processing equipment capable to produce with high accuracy various structural and basic machine parts in weights up to 125 ton and overall dimensions up to 3000х3000х12000 mm. We employ a large equipment fleet of boring machinery including Skoda boring machines, multi-purpose machines like Line planner-type milling machine, continuous rotary milling grinding boring machine Berthiez, specialized machines capable to produce heavy-duty crankshafts with one-, two- and three crankpins. Vertical turning and boring jobs can be performed on components in diameters up to 6300 mm and height up to 3200 mm. On our CNC lathes and milling machines we can produce machined components of any complexity level in lengths up to 3000 mm and diameters up to 600 mm, make thread cutting operations on oil/gas pipes in diameters up to 320 mm and lengths up to 12000 mm, produce columns and bars in diameters up to 2000 mm and lengths up to 21 m, cylinders and rams in diameters up to 2000 mm and lengths up to 10 m.

Installed in our production shops are numerous CNC machine tools, some of them are so called machining centers capable to perform nearly all the machining operations at one set-up and with high accuracy. Liquid paint and lacquer coatings are applied not only by means of standard compressed-air spray guns; we also employ an airless spraying unit (Model DMX-1500) which serves to apply a more uniform and paint-saving coatings on hard-to-reach surfaces. Employed to dry-out paint coatings are thee drying chambers of Helios AirMax series with the following maximum capacities: 15 m in length, 4.5 m in width and 5 m in height. To apply powder coatings we use the method of electrostatic spraying of painting powders. Available is also a powder painting chamber produced at Mahaon.
