Kalashnikov Concern has mastered the production of critical parts for domestic machine tool industry. Following the import substitution trend, Klashnikov has shipped the first pilot batch of spindles for Rusklimat trade and production holding. The product is used in customized machines. This part has been purchased in Italy before.
The first batch of products developed by the group of engineers from the design and engineering department of the Concern’s machine tool division has been accepted successfully. Another 18 products are to be made before the end of the year. It should be noted that it takes about 120 days to manufacture one spindle due to the process complexity and high product accuracy requirements.
“Our essential challenges include the development of domestic machine tool sector and mastering the products that have been exclusively imported before, because the achievement of technological sovereignty of the country is one of the national policy priorities,” says Alan Lushnikov, President of Kalashnikov Concern. “We have successfully filled a niche of high precision screw-cutting lathe manufacturing: A contract portfolio has been formed for the next few years. Kalashnikov’s 250ITVM family machines are unparalleled in Russia in terms of precision and reliability. Transition to domestically-made products is well under way with the aim of avoiding critical dependence on foreign technologies.”
