A report from SkyWay pilot production facility
In March, we reported on the acquisition by SkyWay Technologies Co. of new production areas, which were supposed to be filled with the most modern equipment and highly qualified personnel. Without solving these problems it is impossible to realize the dreams of the Company's General designer Anatoly Yunitskiy and hundreds of thousands of his supporters about creating vehicles of the future to effectively meet the challenges of the new era, requiring higher standards of safety for passengers, "green" technologies significantly reducing the burden on the environment, non-standard technical solutions that will radically reduce energy and transportation costs.
In the present report, we on how plans for the re-equipment of production come true, you will see a part of the new team and equipment, which allow to meet all the demands of our time making it necessary to rethink the traditional traffic of people and goods, raise transport affordability, reduce the cost of goods and services and provide another comfort of travel and entirely other speeds.
Moreover, SkyWay Technologies Co. are now ready to pass over from piece production to small-batch one - the first targeted projects are coming soon!
Translation of the video:
Mikhail Kirichenko: Hallo everybody! Here is Mikhail Kirichenko with you. You are watching SkyWay news, where we tell you about the developments and implementation of breakthrough transport technologies. Today we are in the free economic zone "Minsk", in Shabany, where SkyWay production facility is located. We shall try to examine the new equipment, about the arrival of which we reported quite recently. You will also meet the members of the excellent team gathered by our General designer Anatoly Yunitskiy. I invite you to follow me.
Good afternoon, Anatoly! I see you are in a fine mood. Probably, it is caused by the fact that you are heading the Department that is mastering to work with a very sophisticated equipment that is extremely important for our project and production. Please explain us briefly what it is.
Anatoly Krakasevich: Right, it is a new sophisticated balancing machine. It is a new step for our production, because this machine is designed for balancing rotating bodies. In our project we shall balance rotors for our electric motors that we produce, spindles and wheels. At the moment we are balancing a wheel for a unibus. After that the wheel will have less wobbles, more truly, they will be absent and it will work longer. The same is for ball-bearings and all other units connected with these wheels.
M.K.: How did you cope with these uneasy tasks before the appearance of this machine?
A.K.: Before that, we placed orders with other Companies. It was outsourcing. It took much more time and was considerably more expensive than to do it by ourselves.
M.K.: How perfectly have we mastered the machine? As I know, it is here for a month already.
A.K.: Yes, we have balanced several motors and wheels for unitruck and unibus with it. Now we are balancing new wheels for a new double-rail unibus. This is the next stage.
M.K.: Thank you very much for your interesting explanation, for such a work very useful for SkyWay. Good luck to you.
Tell us, please, what kind of a machine it is and what it is used for.
Yury Sidorenko: It is a five-axle milling machine produced in the USA by the Company HAAS. It is used to process major frameworks with high precision. Its positioning precision is 2.5 microns. The weight of a workpiece is 300 kg with the size of 750 x 500 x 500 mm. Forty tools may be inserted in this machine. It's a very good new machine. HAAS started to produce them quite recently. It is the only machine with such software in Belarus. There are also two similar machines in Mogilev, but their version is lower. Our machine is better.
M.K.: What kinds of parts will be produced at this machine and where will they be used?
Y.S.: Actually, all the parts that are currently used in assembling. Most important that they should fit in the machine by size. Then everything can be milled. Non-ferrous and hard metals, even forged ones. We can do press moulds. It is a multi-purpose machine.
M.K.: What parts, for what systems and SkyWay vehicles will be produced here?
Y.S.: Now we shall do hydraulics here. I know it for sure, I have received a list of parts. I am selecting the tools, therefore this machine may be loaded for two shifts. We are now employing operators. Such are the plans we have.
M.K.: Thank you very much. You have nice plans. Thank you for your interesting explanation. Sign up to our YouTube channel. Stay tuned for the news update at our official website. Join our team.
