Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com)
On 12 July 2018, a high-tech metal processing plant JV Metal Processing was opened in Tashkent.
The metal plant will produce parts for textile equipment, as well as spare parts used in the automotive industry.
The project was carried out with the participation of Rieter AG. The amount of utilized foreign investments is about $ 4 million.
The enterprise has a capacity for processing 760 tons of metal per year with the manufacture of various parts of any complexity for machine tool building. The technological line allows processing metal sheets with a thickness of 1 mm to 20 mm and includes: preparatory part, high-precision laser cutting, welding, powder coating line, quality control. It is planned to manufacture component parts (about 1000 items), primarily for FE “Rieter Uzbekistan”.
By the end of this year, it is planned to produce 155 units or 755 different parts for further production of textile equipment at FE “Rieter Uzbekistan”. This is not only a major step in the localization of Rieter equipment in the republic, but also an important contribution to the development of the modern metalworking industry not only in Uzbekistan, but throughout Central Asia. The investment in the latest equipment and sheet metal processing technology will benefit the mechanical engineering consumer thanks to Swiss quality, competitive prices and on-time delivery.
The project is primarily aimed at meeting the needs of the domestic market, but from 2020 (after stabilizing quality, optimizing costs), export supplies are also planned.
During the event, the leadership of the Uztekstilprom Association noted that the Government of the republic had taken all measures for technical and technological re-equipment and modernization of the equipment park. Over the past 10 years, production facilities have been updated by 100%. The enterprises of the industry have installed modern equipment of the latest generation, which contributes to the improvement of the quality of manufactured products and the increase of their competitiveness in the world market.
