Ulan-Ude Aviation plant modernizes production of mi-171A2

  • Post Category:News

The Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant of the holding company “Helicopters of Russia” (part of “Rostec”), as part of the mass production of the Mi-171A2 helicopter, is putting into operation new equipment for manufacturing and processing special technological equipment. In addition, the company modernizes blanking and stamping production.

After the implementation of the project, digital technologies will cover all stages of preparation of aircraft production at U-UAP. Cutting, control will be carried out with the help of digital technologies, modeling of technological equipment and molding will be carried out on modern equipment.

This will allow to reduce the time of preparation of production by 1.5-2 times and also reduce its labor intensity by 30%.

“We are gradually moving to modern production. New technologies allow us to abandon the use and manufacture of assembly standards, calibres, templates.” This is how the assembly is currently being rigged for the Mi-171A2 and Ka-226T helicopters”, said the managing director of JSC “U -UAP” Leonid Belykh.

In the framework of the project to modernize the production of rigging, in 2018 the assembly of new molding equipment with high-pressure elastic media with simultaneous processing of several parts will be completed. Due to the increase in pressure, the volume of finishing operations is planned to be reduced by 35-40%.

In the workshop for the manufacture of standard and large-sized rigging, in parallel with the production process, work is underway to reconstruct it, designed to reduce the production area by more than 1000 thousand square meters. m.

The modernization of a number of directions in blanking and stamping production has already significantly increased the accuracy of work, and also has saved time and resources. The increase in productivity has increased from 15 to 50%, depending on the type of parts produced. In addition, the technology of high-performance milling cut sheets with optimized layout of blanks saved 1035 hours in 2017.
