Krasnoyarsk aluminum plant expands its line of aluminum alloys

Krasnoyarsk Aluminum Plant this year, expanding its range of casting alloys. To improve the quality of products in the casting departments of the plant is actively conducted technical development units. By the end of 2011 casting alloys will be 27% of the total production output of the plant.

At the foundry unit number 5, which Krasnoyarsk aluminum plant produces the world’s largest bullion (length — 11.5 m, weight — 40 tons), will soon establish magneto mixers metal. As experts say the plant, it will allow the company to expand the spectrum of produced alloys. Will be possible to manufacture magnesium alloy and an increase in production of canned alloys. And more recently on this machine casters have mastered the production of new items — alloy lithographic quality.

"This alloy is used for the manufacture of high-quality offset printing plates. The end user of these products are, for example, Kodak and Fuji. The first party in the amount of 700 tons have already been sent to the consumer in Germany. When the scan quality alloy will decide on further production. We are confident that the market for new products is promising. Its size — up to 50 thousand tons of alloys per year ", — said Evgeny Nikitin, managing director of the Krasnoyarsk aluminum plant.

In order to provide themselves with stable orders, factory introduces advanced design that delivers improved product quality — so, will soon be installed equipment for polishing metal from the impurities. For greater control over the production process at the plant is planned purchase of new laboratory equipment — devices for the analysis of impurities in the primary aluminum and alloys, as well as purity analyzers, liquid metals.
