Ford Sollers has modernized the engine plant in Yelabuga


As part of the implementation of innovative solution in production processes, Ford Sollers Company has installed new high-tech equipment at its engine plant in Yelabuga. Modernization was carried out at the sites of quality control and additional testing. As part of the additional equipment of the company, a new test area was organized; the plant also received innovative digital industrial cameras for remote monitoring of the production process.

According to the press service of Ford Sollers, 6 new industrial cameras check the correctness of the installation of engine parts by comparing the many image parameters, obtained during shooting. The camera takes a snapshot of the detail, then the station's internal software analyzes the snapshot and detects deviations from the specified parameters. New cameras are installed at a number of stations of the engine plant lines.

The new dynamometer stands allow the local execution of a series of planned engine tests, for example, endurance testing to check the life cycle of the engine during operation; thermal cycle tests to check the quality of castings and seals in the engine design, etc. Previously, the engines were tested at the engine plant stands in Bridgend, UK.

Let's remind, the company Ford Sollers has started manufacture of engines in Yelabuga in September, 2015. Investments in the project were more than 275 million dollars. The company produces three versions of the gasoline engine 1.6 liters Duratec - 85 hp, 105 hp and 125 hp.
