Uralelectromed will double its production of powder products
30.01.2012 — News
Uralelectromed, OJSC (part of Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company) is completing the modernization and expansion of its facility that produces powder products. A 630-ton-capacity press has been added to the 14 other presses in a new production unit.
Another two presses will be installed this year, with 300 and 400 tons of press force, as well as a sintering furnace made by the German company Cremer. A total of 100 million rubles will be invested to modernize the production unit.
Uralelectromed's press office told RusBusinessNews that according to their latest data, the production unit produced 400 tons of powder products in 2011 (+ 6% from 2010). The new equipment will allow production to increase by an additional 10% in 2012.
Demand for products made from pressed copper powder has increased in the last two years, because of the powder's precision and surface quality - especially in the field of engineering and the construction of automobiles and electrical goods. The capacity of Uralelectromed's new production unit will be able to fully meet the needs of Russian and Belarusian manufacturers of low-voltage equipment in electrical connections, contact clips, terminals for low-voltage and high-voltage equipment, and transformers. By 2016, the company plans to be producing up to 800 tons of powder products per year.
