At the end of December 2010 at the "Trubodetal» (JSC «Trubodetal", Chelyabinsk, part of United Metallurgical Company "OMC") launched a new industrial robot KUKA Robotics. It is designed to cut holes (for the branch tee) of the workpieces up to 100 mm in the automatic mode.
Installation of industrial robot has been implemented within the framework of the project "Capacity building for the manufacture of stamped tees diameter of 530 mm to 1420 … pressure from 1.6 to 15 MPa strength class up to K65, using new technologies."
"Commissioning of the industrial robot KUKA Robotics, the last in the chain of production equipment tees at high pressures, means the actual completion of the largest project of" Trubodetal ", which was opened in 2007," — said the head of the project Artem Botvinnikov.
The project included the construction of new production facilities (thermo-press section for the production of stamped and welded tees at both high and low pressure), purchased additional industrial equipment.
