A plant with a 60-year history in Kokshetau began transitioning to electronic operations
Digital transformation of the industrial sector is a very effective tool to increase performance of production facilities. A plant with a 60-year history in Kokshetau began transitioning to electronic operations. The enterprise once produced oxygen breathing equipment, and now successfully produces equipment for aviation, defense and healthcare sectors. Five years ago, in the plant’s design office, drawings were made manually by six people. Currently, one project can be completed by one employee using computer graphics and new software, which saves time and allows specialists to preview parts in 3D model.
ALEXANDER SHAVRIN, CHIEF TECHNOLOGIST
- The new technologies allow performing complex assemblies to eliminate production errors, reduce production costs and accelerate the manufacturing process.
Modernization of the technical operations and the single process management yielded positive results. Over the past two years, the plant has saved significant amount of energy as the electricity consumption dropped by 30 percent. The company will complete its digital transformation by 2020.
KAIRAT KALMANBAYEV, DIRECTOR GENERAL OF PRODUCTION ENTERPRISE:
- We are currently engaged in staff training and upgrading of our production equipment. We are converting the technological chart, documents and other records into electronic format. The whole process can be fully tracked and incorporates estimates starting with the delivery of raw materials to providing the customers with finished products.
The demand for the plant’s products increased due to the digital transformation of the production processes. The enterprise is introducing new lines developing new products on request. 35 percent of the goods are exported.
