NASOSENERGOMASH - Versatility translated into productivityReliability and precision in machining, all machining operations required are performed on one single machine and in one single set-up

Challenge

Optimise the production process and improve the precision of pump casings. Ensure that all machining operations are performed on one single machine, and with one single set-up process (instead of on 6 different machines), increase the productivity, reduce idle times and thus improve precision, as there is only one set-up process.

Solution

  • SORALUCE VTC 3200 vertical turning centre
  • Multifunctional machining: all turning, drilling, milling and threading operations are performed on one single machine, and with one single set-up process
  • Wide range of different heads for addressing the different machining operations
  • Head with four turning positions, making it possible to use four tools with no idle time for tool changing

"There has been a great improvement in terms of precision and productivity. Previously, pump casings were machined on six different machines in order to be able to perform all the machining operations required on pieces of this type. With the VTC 3200, all operations can be performed on one single machine and in one single set-up. This has boosted our productivity, reduced idle time for preparing pieces and has improved precision as the entire piece is machined in one single set-up."

Interview

Vladimir Kushko, Technical Director

In what way has your pump casing production been improved with the new VTC 3200 vertical lathe?

There have been great improvements in terms of precision and productivity. Previously, pump casings were processed on six different machines in order to be able to perform all the necessary machining operations.

With the VTC 3200, all operations are performed on one single machine, and with one single set-up process. This has enabled us to improve our productivity, reduce idle time required for setting up the piece, thus improving the precision, since there is only one set-up process

The machine also has a head with four turning positions, making it possible to use four tools with no idle time for tool changing, which optimises machining times.

What are the principal operations performed on the VTC 3200?

The basic operations required for pump casings are turning, drilling, milling and threading.

The VTC 3200 turning centre comes with a wide range of different heads, and we can perform all these machining operations, along with others, on the same machine, and with one single set-up process. 

How would you assess SORALUCE´s work in this project?

SORALUCE really has been an exceptional partner. We explained our machining problems and our requirements to them, and SORALUCE came up with an extremely precise, highly productive solution. They have demonstrated their enormous experience, know-how and flexibility, adapting to our specifications and proposing improvements with a highly positive effect on the final product.
