ChelPipe Group is the first Russian company to develop high-precision cold-deformed pipes for the fuel lines of internal combustion engines. The production of a new line of products is organized at Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (PNTZ, part of ChelPipe Group). Pipes with an external diameter of 8 mm and an internal diameter of 3 mm made from high-quality low-alloy steel are designed for the fuel lines of diesel engines like CommonRail.
The target consumers of the new line are enterprises of the automobile and shipbuilding industries and transport engineering. Altay Precision Components Plant is the first customer.
“There used to be no production of pipes for fuel systems like CommonRail. The ChelPipe launched the production of a new line which is on par with the technical characteristics of import analogues. The company therefore makes its contribution to the satisfaction of the market demand of Russian enterprises for components of modern diesel engines”, comments Kirill Nikitin, Tecnhical Director of ChelPipe Group.
The development of a new type of products, technologies, the production of samples and a development batch of pipes were performed with due regard for the requirements of IATF 16949 “Fundamental Requirements to the Quality Management System for Automobile Industry Enterprises and Organizations Supplying Service Parts” and the guidance of APQP “Advanced Product Quality Planning”.
The ChTPZ’s share in deliveries among the primary pipe manufactures for the automobile industry of Russia is approximately 60%.
