Chelyabinsk Robot Plant: plans and capabilities of the first enterprise of this kind in the Russian Federation

5

Robot Plant LLC in Chelyabinsk became the first domestic enterprise to produce industrial robotic manipulators. The site occupies 11 square meters.

To date, the company has already launched the production of three types of robots with a carrying capacity of 30, 60 and 120 kg.



According to the General Director of the Robot Plant, Konsiantin Shipulin, the machines produced were developed by the company’s engineers from scratch. In addition, the machines use the vast majority of domestic components, including software.

Initially, the task was set not to do reverse engineering, but to develop everything completely on our own

- said the general director of the unique Chelyabinsk plant.

As Shipulin put it, the product was created in literally two years. Serial production has now begun, and this year it is planned to produce 450 robots. Moreover, in 2025, according to the plan, from 600 to 1000 units of products will be produced, and in another year the enterprise should reach a figure of up to 2000 robots. By this time, production at the plant will be fully automated.

The above-mentioned robotic arms are in demand in machining and assembly line industries.

At the moment, the plant has already produced about 20 robots with a carrying capacity of 120 kg, which are ready to go to the customer. At the same time, before handing over its products to the end user, the Robot Factory conducts thorough testing of each individual unit.

According to Shipulin, before going to the customer, robots operate continuously for 36 to 72 hours in different modes and under different loads.

It is worth noting that, despite a completely domestic development, not copied from leading foreign manufacturers, some parts in Chelyabinsk robots are still purchased abroad.

In particular, gearboxes and servos are purchased. However, as the general director of the Robot Plant in Chelyabinsk put it, in the future the company plans to develop independent production of these components. Thus, the plant intends to begin production of its own gearboxes by 2026.

    Everything as usual.
    Until the thunder of the Northern Military District struck, no one was going to be baptized.

    I have already said that with a change in economic policy, Russia will be reborn in three years, like a “phoenix” from the ashes. This is not after the Second World War, when everything was destroyed. Everything is intact with us, only all the profits do not go to the state, but end up in the West and in the pockets of the owners of these enterprises. But as long as Putin is in power, “selling the Motherland” will be a priority.

    Robots are increasingly coming into our world. In some places, humanoid robots brighten up the lives of old people, talking on various topics. But everywhere, industrial robots are being introduced first. When the flow of such robots is established, they become cheaper. We still have many enterprises that are organized by foreign entrepreneurs . They are not interested in using industrial robots in our enterprises. Workers' labor is cheaper. Perhaps these new robots will be the first sign in organizing production.

    I wonder how many axes of motion these products have? And further. I watched the entire video carefully. Welding robots on automatic welding lines are a separate “song”.

    It is worth noting that, despite a completely domestic development, not copied from leading foreign manufacturers, some parts in Chelyabinsk robots are still purchased abroad.

    The question here is how they looked for these parts from foreign partners, from what catalogs, and how they designed them, if we don’t have such parts, and maybe even assemblies.
