ME "DNIPRODZERZHYNSKY STEELMAKING PLANT"
ME “Dniprodzerzhynsky Steelmaking Plant” daughter enterprise of PJSC “Dniprovagonmash” was established in 1992 on the basis of a mold-casting workshop, which has existed since 1926 and has extensive experience.
The story of DSLZ begins since 1926, when Dniprodzerzhynsky waggon building plant was separated into an independent enterprise and a Steel Foundry Shop was a part of this enterprise there. The shop was intended for production of castings for waggon parts. Over the past period the shop had been repeatedly reconstructed in order to improve technological processes, expand production and improve working conditions.
The last project of Steel Foundry Shop reconstruction had been basically realized by 1985. The design capacity is 22,000 tons of casting per year on the area of 25,000 m2. The shop includes the following production areas: melting, molding, rod, mixing, heat treatment and knocking-out bay.
For several decades of constant construction, restoration and reconstruction, a small foundry with primitive technology and only manual labor turned into a large highly mechanized enterprise of the country with a wide range of nomenclature and serial production of steel castings.
The plant specializes in production of castings for waggon building, weighing from 0.9 to 200 kg of carbon and low-alloy steel in a wet sandy-clay form. The molds are produced on molding machines with dimensions of the flasks 1300x700x380 mm, and on two automatic lines with dimensions of the flasks 1000x800x300 and 800x700x200 mm
The production capacity of the enterprise is currently more than 20 thousand tons per year.
In addition to the main nomenclature, the production of castings for agricultural machinery and other branches of the national economy has been mastered.
The plant successfully developed, implemented and certified a quality management system that meets the requirements of the standard DSTU, ISO 9001: 2009 (ISO 9001: 2008).
The stable quality of the main products: “CA-3 automatic coupler”, “auto coupler box”, “yokes”, “front draft lugs”, “rear draft lugs”, “draft lugs with center plate”, “fixed brake shoe” is certified by UkrSEPRO (Ukraine).
At the enterprise there are constant works on perfection of production technology, improvement of quality of produced castings, and also expansion of the nomenclature of produced products.
Dniprodzerzhynsky Steelmaking Plant is ready to accept orders for the manufacturing of castings of steel and cast iron, maximum weighting up to 2 tons.
