Rostec’s United Engine Corporation has launched three new manufacturing buildings outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment at Samara-based UEC-Kuznetsov. More than 4 billion Rubles were invested in their construction. Commissioning of new capacities will double the output of components for a set of propulsion units.  

All new manufacturing areas are furnished with high precision control equipment – coordinate measuring machines and magnetic powder and fluorescent penetrant inspection systems to ensure quality control at all manufacturing stages. 

The new tool-making facilities with an area of 2,400 square meters will manufacture tooling designed to assemble parts and components for some industrial engines, NK-32 series 02, NK-12MP, NK-25 air propulsion systems and a new advanced heavy-duty product.  

A welding building with an area of 3,900 square meters accommodated nine manufacturing areas, including robotic equipment, to enable the operators to perform soldering, welding and to apply protective coatings in automatic mode. A 3D printer is integrated in the process flow to allow “growing” of large-size products. The manufacturing facility is able to handle more than 5,500 parts and components per year. 

The second compressor building phase with an area of 4,600 square meters involves 11 manufacturing areas, including compressor component machining, plasma and detonation spraying, and quality control areas.
