U-UAP puts new painting facility into operation

Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant of Russian Helicopters Holding Company (a part of Rostec State Corporation) is completing an investment project for modernization and development of painting facilities. As part of this project, a new painting building equipped with modern technological equipment is being put into operation.

The building is equipped with painting and drying chambers with automated systems for process parameter maintaining and monitoring and filters for reducing hazardous atmospheric emissions.

After commissioning is finished and a statement of compliance is obtained to certify that the facility is in line with the technical regulations, U-UAP will begin putting the technology into use. Helicopter painting will begin this year.

"The new building, designed both for those products already produced at the the enterprise and those planned for future production, will enable us to improve painting quality and working conditions and to reduce the production cycle by at least 15%", says Leonid Belykh, Managing Director of U-UAP. "In addition, it will increase the level of fire and environmental safety as per the modern requirements".

Unique equipment design will allow to perform painting of Mi-8/171 type helicopters via two independent work flows; up to 6 helicopters can be processed at different stages of the cycle. If needed, large items can be painted (length up to 25 m, width up to 22 m, height up to 6.5 m, weight up to 22.5 tons). The ability to set and automatically maintain air exchange, temperature and humidity parameters allows to obtain consistently high coating quality without follow-up fixes. Water recycling, air purification, emergency prevention and elimination, engineering automation systems will improve overall safety.
