UKROBORONPROM SE "Zorya" – "Mashproekt" started testing operation of modern equipment of Italian company PAMA. A new profiled-grinding machine for processing Gleason-PFAUTER (Germany) gears and complex for finishing and control of bevel gears with circular teeth (USA) will update the machinery of the unit in 2016.

In general, in 2016 SE "Zorya" – "Mashproekt" plans to spend 163 million UAH for modernization of production facilities. The enterprise is willing to meet high-tech manufacturing modern requirements. When choosing a vendor, the enterprise tends to standard pieces of equipment that is used for gas turbines worldwide.

SPEEDRAM 3000 tool-grinding machine is designed to handle large-sized parts. The equipment is of high accuracy – measurement limits up to 1 µm. Machine dimensions – 3×4 meters – and its working accuracy allow reduction-gear housing mechanical machining by boring axes in one installation without turning. By reducing the set up and reinstall time, production cycle of each part is reduced substantially. In general, great gearbox production cycle can reach one and a half years. Reducing the time, spent on its production, allows the enterprise to be more competitive.

The most stringent quality requirements of the foundation quality during machine installation were met to achieve its required working parameters. In particular, the foundation deflection does not exceed 0.04 mm, the tilt is no more than 5 µm to m. 252 constituents piles – 11 meters length each – were driven, when creating the foundation; 800 cubic meters of concrete cubage, depth – 4.5 meters.

Gear production SE "Zorya" – "Mashproekt" is one of the leading in Europe. It provides design, manufacturing, testing and repair (renewal) of almost any gears. The enterprise carries out a complete cycle of all elements manufacturing, included in the gear: Case and stator elements and rotating parts.

In 2016 UKROBORONPROM headed for the transition to high-tech manufacturing, international (NATO) standards and supplying the army with modern armament types.
