The next stage of transfer of experience and competencies takes place at the new plant Modern Forging Technologies which is a part of KONAR Industrial group.  

MFT is a unique forging complex where the best European technologies and equipment are localized. It was commissioned in December 2020. Selection, start and set-up of the equipment was carried out by KONAR with direct participation of the technological partner    Cividale S.p.A., a world-wide famous leader in the foundry field.

Now active implementation of all capabilities of the equipment is carried out at MFT. During 2020 the specialists of the Italian company VECCHIATO have come several times in order to share their experience. At the moment the specialists of another Italian company Facs Fucine S.r.l., a part of Cividale Group, are sharing their knowledge. Head of forging shop, press operator Loris Macorig and a manipulator operator Ivica Stanojlovic are going to carry out training of MFT personnel during 3 weeks, up to the 4th of February.

Together with the Russian specialists, the Italians perform adjustment of the production technology, implement the process of manufacturing of various items, take part in design of forging tooling.

– The Italian colleagues are competent in all processes, — said Ilya Gurin, Head of Quality Department MFT LLC. – These specialists have a special view of production – they never hope that anyone will solve, do or create for them. They know what and how to do in order to be effective, how products shall be manufactured. Their practical knowledge is important and valuable for us.

The Italian specialists appreciated arrangement of production workshops and equipment selection that is unique for Russia.

– In MFT we can see the most modern European technologies and equipment. One cannot always see it even in Italy! Here the production conforms with the world standards. It is impressive. I can draw attention to personnel selection.  Most of workers are young but they already have experience in manufacturing of complex parts. From the point of view of production and knowledge of technological processes, we speak the same language. Qualification of these young people deserves respect, – said Loris Macorig.

If the epidemic situation improves, training of Chelyabinsk specialists at the forging facilities of Europe will be planned for 2021.
