Kaluga non-ferrous metals processing plant is situated in the city of Kaluga. Kaluga oblast is one of the most economically advanced subjects of the Russian Federation. The region holds the leading position in Russia in terms of industrial growth, amount of investment and level of advanced technologies annually introduced into production. Many projects are implemented in the region by largest international companies: Volkswagen, Volvo, Peugeot, Citroen, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Continental and many others. Kaluga non-ferrous metals processing plant takes its rightful place in the list of metal-working manufacturers as the leading producer of clad materials in Russia.
Our company: Kaluga non-ferrous metals processing plant LLC was founded in 2001 on the basis of production department No.2 of the Ametist plant. The Ametist plant was part of the Granatproduction association and carried out the orders of the Ministry of Electronics Industry. New materials and new technologies were tested and introduced into the plantby the All-Union Scientific-Research Institute of electronic technologymaterials – VNIIMET.
It was for the expansion of Ametist’s research activities and plant facilities that the new production building – production department No.2, with a total area of about 12,000 m2 was designed and built on the right bank of the Oka river in the late 1980s. Around the same time through the Ministry of Foreign Trade new rolling equipment was ordered, designed and supplied by a German group of companies – Mannesmann Demag Sack: equipment manufacturers – Schmitz, Kohnle, Wesero, Herkules and others.
The complex of rolling equipment was designed for manufacturing of clad strips using cold diffusion cladding and forproduction of precision rolled strips. Equipment of such class which provides full production cycle from preparation of raw materials to production of high quality cladstrips is unique and so far knows no equals in Russia and neighboring countries.
The equipment was received, installed and put into operation in 1991, and thatwas the year of birth of the new enterprise!
The cold-rolled clad strip materials were used for production of bonding pad leadframes, transistors and other electronic products and vacuum-tube industry.
The only disadvantage of the new complex of rolling equipment wasits low performance: no more than 100 tons of clad strips per month. Since 2001, with the advent of new investors the plant began to develop quickly and became a leading manufacturer of clad material in Russia. The innovative breakthrough in production of clad strips became possible through our experts’ hard work on selection and installation of the new rolling equipment from the best European manufacturers. Our equipment supplying partners are leading companies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
Modern equipment, qualified personnel, experienced team of engineers and technicians enable us to successfully meet the challenges of work with our Customers.
At the present moment, Kaluga non-ferrous metals processing plant is a leading Russian manufacturer of clad strips with cold diffusion cladding on the basis of low-carbon steels. Precision equipment allows us also to produce rolled steel and rolled strips of non-ferrous metals based on copper. Production capacity of the plant enables tomanufacture up to 800 tons of clad strips per month!
Manufacturing of competitive products is ensured by the quality management system applied in the plant, certified for compliance with ISO 9001 standard by certification authority TÜV Thüringen e.V.
The company has considerably expanded the range of products. Today clad strips produced in our plantfind application in various branches of modern industry: automotive industry, electrical engineering, production of electronic devices, components of medical equipment, elements of product protection, bases of cartridge cases for smooth-bore weapons, elementsof cartridge cases and cartridge and bullet primers.
