A new hydraulic press manufactured by HIDROGARNE company (Spain) has been commissioned at the Ural Turbine Works (UTW). The equipment is designed for straightening (truing) of sheet products and stamping odd-shaped parts. The installation and adjustment works were performed by the specialists of St. Petersburg CJSC IRLEN-ENGINEERING.
The 48-ton press was manufactured taking into consideration the specific UTW requirements. There are no analogues of such equipment at any other power plant engineering enterprises. The new machine replaced П-3236 model press which was manufactured 45 years ago and has already outlived its usefulness.
It should be noted that the Ural Turbine Works as a supplier of the main and auxiliary heat power plant equipment has its own production of metal structures, such as reheaters and condensers. The metal structure shop is one of the enterprise’s most advanced shops. Some new welding machines, flame cut-off line and a sheet and plate bending machine were installed in it in the recent years.
