Published date: 12 Feb 2020
In 2019 Uralmashplant JSC manufactured the record quantity of crushing units for mining companies over the last five years: 22 units were shipped to customers. This result is 2.2 times higher than the result of the year 2018 and 3.1 times higher than in 2015.
In the year 2020 the production volumes of mining equipment will rise by min. 45%: today the stock of orders of Uralmashplant includes 32 crushing units for the largest mining companies in Russia and neighboring countries. However, according to Mr. Alexey Kozhemyako (Deputy General Director, project support) the contracting process for this year is not finished yet. He says that it is entirely possible that by the middle of the year the stock of orders for crushing equipment will increase. "We have already started building the stock of orders for the year 2021," says Mr. Kozhemyako.
According to the chief designer of crushing and milling equipment, Mr. Vitaliy Furin, the increase in the demand for Uralmashplant-make crushing equipment is related to the implementation of business-plans aimed at increasing output by mining companies and to the significant increase in the quality of crushing and milling products achieved by the factory over the last five years. "We changed the fundamental approach to the work with a client: today we offer not just machinery equipped with state-of-art systems but complex solutions customized for the client's specific business tasks on the basis of our equipment," tells Mr. Furin.
The largest complex ore processing facility modernization projects that will be implemented by Uralmashplant in 2019-2020 include the modernization of a benefication plant of Amalykskiy GMK (Uzbekistan) and other plants owned by Karelskiy okatysh (Severstal JSC), Stoilenskiy GOK (NLMK group), and Sibir-Polymetally (UMMC). At the moment Uralmashplant is also discussing the projects of technical modernization of crushing and milling plants with other leading mining companies of Russia, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia.
One of the strategic tasks of Uralmashplant for the year 2020 in the field of crushing and milling equipment is the expansion of its product range. Uralmashplant designers have already developed the design of a single-toggle jaw crusher which is fundamentally new equipment for the factory.
