Due to the project realization the additional functions for performance control of the post-bending machine are available that will reduce emergency downtimes. During the modernization a new control panel, which improved the work efficiency of operators, was installed.

"The determinative factor during the reduction of the production cost is not only the implementation of new equipment, complex mechanization and production processes automation but also resource saving owing to development of advanced technologies. This is carried out successfully at KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT. The work upon this project is the next step in the development of the technological potential of our company which has proved once more the skilled level of "KHARTSYZSK PIPE" employees", Iurii Zinchenko, Director General of PJSC "KHARTSYZSK PIPE", said.
