Novokramatorsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod (Kramatorsk, Donetsk region) has summed up the results of economic activity in 2020.

The main technical and economic indices reflect positive dynamics. Compared to 2019, the sales volume amounted to 100.9 %, the output of commercial products – 100.4 % (including for export – 118.2%), the shipment of commercial products – 100.2%.

The average monthly wage of NKMZ workers increased by 6.9% compared to 2019 and amounted to UAH 17,329. At the same time, the average monthly wage of one pieceworker increased by 8.5%, amounting to UAH 22801.2, one machine operator – by 13.3% to UAH 27329.5.

Among the largest orders completed by the enterprise in 2020 was a ladle turret for the Dneprovsky Metallurgical Plant (Kamenskoye, Ukraine), two mills to the “Southern Mining Factory” (Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine), a powerful ore bucket unloader for the “Zaporizhstal” Integrated Iron and Steel Works (Ukraine), four P-110 roadheaders for the miners of Karaganda (Republic of Kazakhstan), two spreaders for the Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combinat (Republic of Uzbekistan).

Novokramatorsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod is a large machine-building enterprise with a closed production cycle, specializing in the production of rolling, metallurgical, press-forging, mining, hydraulic engineering, handling and special-purpose machinery.

Electric workshop of NKMZ JSC performed in a new role

For the first time, three new sectors for the 1200-1500 mm inductor of the hardening plant ТПЧ-1500 of the press-forging workshop heat treatment area No. 1 were manufactured in the electric workshop of the Novokramatorsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod.

Previously, they only repaired old inductors for hardening plants.

As Sergei Seregin, the foreman of the ТПЧ heat treaters of the heat treatment area No. 1 said, the installation of new assembly units is ongoing.

“This order is unusual for us,” says Vitaly Bashtovoy, electric workshop manager of NKMZ JSC. – “Over the past fifteen years, we have manufactured new equipment assemblies for the first time. Before starting this work, our specialists visited the enterprises that manufacture such inductors and decided that we would cope with this work.

The most difficult thing was to make an inductor coil from a rectangular shaped copper pipe, since its bending is performed according to a special pattern. All parts for the inductor were manufactured at NKMZ – in the workshop for special-purpose tools and in workshop No.16, and the electric workshop assembled them.

The work was carried out by a team of electric fitters (foreman Vadim Kosik) under the guidance of chief foreman Alexander Melnik. We can say that a new stage has begun in the life of our workshop. Today, new inductors with diameters of 630, 450, 660, 540 and 250 mm are on the way to assembly.”

Central plant laboratory of NKMZ PJSC has been accredited

After successful auditing in September last year, on January 26 the Central plant laboratory of Novokramatorsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod was accredited by the National Accreditation Agency of Ukraine (NAAU).

NAAU, in the laboratory’s accreditation certificate, confirmed its competence in accordance with the requirements of the DSTU ISO / IEC 17025: 2017 standard in the field of testing and control in manufacturing castings from structural unalloyed steel, alloy steel and steel with special features, forgings from structural carbon and alloy steel, welding joints; in the field of non-destructive testing; physical-mechanical, physical-chemical and metallographic tests, as well as hardness tests.

The Central plant laboratory of NKMZ PJSC already had the approval certification document confirming its competence, which was issued by the main certification authority of Ukraine. But in 2015, the Law of Ukraine “On Metrology” annulled the term “certification of laboratories” itself, and today the authorities that carried out this certification do not exist.

Instead of the term “certification”, this Law introduced the term of a higher level – accreditation. As a result, Ukraine switched to the international standard DSTU ISO / IEC17025: 2017, which is a regulatory document specifying the requirements to the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and which implies their accreditation. Confirmation as a result of accreditation of the laboratory’s compliance with the requirements of this standard means that it has both technical competence and functioning quality management system, which allows it to obtain technically based results of measurements. Today, an accredited laboratory that meets this standard of competence has a higher status than the previous certified laboratory.

The National Accreditation Agency of Ukraine, which has accredited the CPL of NKMZ PJSC is the only authority in our country that makes the assessment of test calibration laboratories for compliance with the international standard DSTU ISO / IEC17025: 2017. The agency’s credibility is confirmed by its full membership in ILAC, an international organization for laboratory accreditation, which activities are aimed at improving the quality and reliance in tests performed by laboratories, in conformity assessments and personnel qualifications.

The main result of accreditation of the Central plant laboratory of NKMZ PJSC is the international recognition of the reports of its tests, thanks to the corresponding agreement signed between NAAU and ILAC. And now there is no need to subject NKMZ products to repeated tests in the countries where this certificate of CPL accreditation is acknowledged.
