The plant where pole fittings are produced is rather new and appeared a couple of years ago. It was built instead of another factory that used to produce transmission lines for track machines but was closed after collapse of the USSR.
The factory was left abandoned but was soon noticed by Murom businessmen who brought new equipment and invited employees. Â Every plant starts with a raw material storage. Here steel plates are stored. The plant is mainly busy with their processing.
The plates are cut and can acquire any shape with the help of the plasma arc cutting unit.
Gas-cutting machine uses gas instead of plasma.
Some steel plates are too uneven and have to be reshaped.
The pressure machine is the heart of entire production.
It can bend thick and long plates easily.
Bent plates are sent for welding.
Some details are too huge to be processed by the machine.
They are processed with special tractors.
After welding a product has to be covered with some coating to prevent corrosion. They use liquid zinc for that.
First the product is washed with soap solution.
It is then acid-etched.
