Foundry

In 2020, Kazankompressormash (Compressor business segment) completed an investment project on the foundry re-equipment to create the modern foundry complex on its base.

The foundry complex is intended, primarily, for production of large-size castings and is capable of simultaneous smelting up to 17 tons of liquid metal to produce high-quality steel castings with weight up to 9 tons and cast iron castings with a weight up to 13 tons.

The modernization expanded the range of sizes and materials and enhance quality and accuracy of production the castings of a wide range of alloys, including the steel ones of a large size.

The smelting complex of four heat-treating furnaces with a total capacity up to 90 tons was put into pilot operation also. The heat-treating complex allows heat treatment of castings, forgings, assemblies and other large-sized parts with an in-process temperature range 550 to 1200°C.
