KAMAZ Smith factory will produce crankshafts for Volkswagen Group Rus


KAMAZ smith factory successfully passed an audit of a two-day production organized by representatives of Volkswagen Group Rus, and it received approval for the production of crankshafts for cars. From the next year, the smith plant will work with partners from Kaluga in the status of a permanent supplier.

According to the director of the smith plant, Alexander Kalashnikov, in terms of engineering, a lot of new solutions for the design of the product and tooling have been found. "Products of such high precision at the smithy factory have not been manufactured yet. Today this is a debugged serial process," - he stressed. "A good reserve has been created: next year our volumes of diversification products will grow by a quarter, which is the workload of the personnel and certain insurance in terms of reducing risks due to fluctuations in the market."

The main result of the final audit is that the customer representatives were convinced: the whole process is set up and really ensures the serial production of the forging of the crankshaft on a passenger car with the required quality and in the required volumes. "So far, by evaluating the forces of existing equipment, we estimate our capabilities in 150,000 forgings per a year," – Mr. Kalashnikov said. – “We associate the further development and increase in volumes with the modernization project, the purchase of new equipment. The work has already begun. "Let's remind, the Volkswagen Group Rus motor plant in Kaluga produces a gasoline engine in two variants of capacities (90 hp and 110 hp) and it is installed on five models of the group: Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Jetta, Skoda Rapid, Skoda Octavia and Skoda Yeti . The maximum production capacity of the plant is 150 thousand engines per a year.
