Volschansk Mechanical Plant expanding product range

Volschank Mechanical Plant, a branch of Uralvagonzavod Corp., plans to expand its line of products, Ural Business Consulting said April 9.

The Russian company makes railway cars. Its new products will include Platform 23-5179 to transport rolled sheets.

Platform 23-5179 will only be used inside the manufacturing plant. It will be used to transport rolled stock along railways. The platform has been designed to fit steel sheets of specific measurements.

The Ural Railway Design Office, also part of Uralvagonzavod Corp., has created the design documentation for the new Platform 23-5179. Volschank and Ural Railway Design Office have collaborated on projects before. They make an effective team in creating, introducing, manufacturing, and marketing special-purpose carriages for serial production.

“Thanks to a number of design solutions, it will be possible to transport the sheets in a slanting position and to do all the loading and unloading with sheets placed horizontally, which meets the consignor and the consignee’s technological needs,” Volschansk Mechanical Plant officials said.
