Metinvest Promservice Began Major Overhaul At The Site Of Azovstal
Metinvest Promservice, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, started a large and very interesting overhaul at the site of Azovstal Iron & Steel Works a sorting machine No. 2 in the large-section rolling mill. And it is interesting because the machine has not been repaired for a long time, thoroughly. It was just that there were no brave people who were ready to take on such a large-scale business. But the specialists of our branch number 1 decided! They are confident in their strength and experience.
The grading machine is very important for the process. Here the deformation remaining in the products after rolling mills is eliminated. Editing pass corner, rail, mine rack, round timber - in general, the entire range of the shop.
The unit was stopped according to the plan on May 17. Until the 20th, they were engaged in the workshop technologists: they dismantled engines, cleaned equipment, etc.
The main task of the overhaul is the replacement of eight straightening shafts, as well as the restoration of the operating parameters of the drives with the replacement of spindles and arbors. Here, two electric cranes will come to the aid of our guys at once. After all, the assembly frame weighs about 30 tons!
Now the site of the Center No. 1 Center’s TSMO works - mechanics, electric welders, gas cutters, and at the end of the week they will be joined by colleagues from TsSO PP. Work will last at least a month. I am sure: the result will be excellent!
