Belarusian tractor maker MTZ to invest over €9m in modernizing mechanical assembly operations

MINSK, 19 April (BelTA) – There are plans to invest over €9 million in modernizing mechanical assembly operations at Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ) soon. It has to be done in order to increase the output of powerful machines and vehicles, the MTZ press service told BelTA.

In particular, the company intends to buy a laser complex, a parts washer, and an automatic system for storing metal sheets for shop No.91 this year. Shop No.92 needs all kinds of grinding equipment as well as turning equipment and gear production machines. The company intends to buy several vertical milling machines and horizontal machining centers for shop No.96 in the future.

“We will buy machine tools primarily to augment the existing ones instead of replacing them. Increasing the output capacity is the idea. Absolutely all the machine tools will be numerically controlled. Many of them will have a large bed plate to allow machining large body parts,” said Sergei Tereshonok, Head of the Department for Design and Manufacturing Technology of Powerful Tractors and Special-Purpose Vehicles of the Chief Industrial Engineer’s Office at OAO MTZ.

Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ trademark) is one of the largest manufacturers of agricultural machines not only in the CIS states but the entire world. Customers are offered over 100 tractor models in more than 200 modifications for all climatic and operational conditions. New models boast great capabilities with regard to the aggregation of agricultural machines of various manufacturers. MTZ designs, makes, and exports wheel tractors and spare parts, licenses their production abroad, organizes and offers aftersales service for sold vehicles, and offers personnel training with regard to operation and maintenance of the vehicles the company makes.
