Russia’s OMZ-Special Steels, which is part
of the OMZ Group, launched an upgrade of its AKK 6,000-ton forging plant.
Modernization of the press will be made in association with a major overhaul of
all of the facility’s components and equipment systems. This project is
expected to increase the productivity of the forging complex by reducing times
for forging cycles, tool change-out and other efficiency improvements. The modernization
will cost nearly $3 million and will be completed in June 2012.
