The Shvabe holding company, an affiliate of the Rostec State Corporation, familiarised the Indian specialists with the procedure for assembly of the electro-optical system for special-purpose equipment. The training programme lasted one and a half months.
Specialists of the assembly shop and the chief designer’s department of the Vologda optical and mechanical plant (VOMZ), an affiliate of Shvabe, trained the foreign employees. The training was conducted in India as part of the intergovernmental contract for defence industry cooperation entered into in the 2000's.
"Today, an optoelectronic system for advanced special-purpose equipment is being manufactured in Dehradun based on the VOMZ technology. As part of the training programme we taught our Indian colleagues how to manage work of an assembly shop, familiarised them with peculiarities of various system assembly and adjustment stages. Implementation of this project will enable further strengthening of our mutually beneficial cooperation," told Dmitry Zhidkov, Deputy General Director of Shvabe.
Cooperation of Shvabe and India for commercial assembly of the electro-optical system for special-purpose equipment in Dehradun has started about 15 years ago. Besides, VOMZ has been training Indian specialists for component repair of this system at a repair plant in Deli since 2016. The plant supplies non-standard equipment for adjustment and testing of such devices.
