TKZ Commissioned New Manufacturing Equipment in Framework of Implementation of Russian and Foreign Projects
Public Joint-Stock Company “The Taganrog Boiler-Making Works “Krasny Kotelshchik” (TKZ) purchased a new roller jig. This jig has been installed in one of the largest production divisions of TKZ: Shells & Vessels Workshop.
The above division specializes in manufacture of large items: drums, deaerators, heater bodies, etc., when implementing projects in Russia and abroad. The new rotating jig will be actively used under the projects.
In particular, it will allow rotating large items with subsequent arrangement thereof in the position convenient for assembly and welding operations. In terms of lifting capacity and rotational moment the jig is designed to rotate the items whose length can be up to 40 m, outside diameter – from 1.8 to 4 m and weight – up to 200 tons. The new equipment will be also used at trial assembly and submission of TKZ products to representatives of inspection and supervisory bodies.
The purchased roller jig is equipped with a roller rotation synchronization system. Speed of product rotation around its axis can vary in a range from 18 up to 120 m/h which directly influences the quality of performed operations.
One more important condition has been accounted for by the manufacturer: mandatory polyurethane coating on the jig rollers. The coating has a protection function, it prevents dents and burrs on surfaces of products being manufactured at rotation thereof.
Further to the above, the roller jig is easy to operate. It is possible to rotate products with a portable hand control being at a distance of 30m from the product itselt.
