The Production Complex integrates three
Production Centers which are working in accordance with the single plan and in
The compact arrangement of the RAC
"MiG" Production Centers in the European part of the Russian Federation, the
close proximity to the design centers and tests of the aeronautical engineering
provide for reduction of logistics costs.
The permanent renewal of the RAC "MiG"
production facilities makes the production process more mobile, capable quickly
and effectively to respond to changes of market conditions and the Corporation
The up-to-date information technologies
are widely used in production process of manufacturing the flight vehicles.
The Production Center No.1 (PC 1)
located in city of Lukhovitsy, Moscow region is a high capacity modern plant
provided with the high-performance equipment and capable to produce various
flight vehicles: from ultra-light airplanes up to state-of-the-art fighters and
Within the framework of the current
re-equipment of the Production Center the Lukhovitsky plant plays the role of
the main industrial site of RAC "MiG".
The airframe components of MiG-23 and
MiG-29 aircraft have been serially produced in Lukhovitsy. Currently the plant
produces in series MiG-29K/KUB carrier-based fighters.
Within the framework of the conversion
program the plant produces IL-103 light civil airplanes as well as airframes
composite aggregates of Su-29 and Su-31 sport airplanes.
The shop of final assembly which is put
into operation in 2005 is the most advanced one in Russia. It allows produce
both combat aircraft and civil airplanes including the passenger ones.
PC1 is equipped with modern machine
processing and measuring equipment which ensures the application of digital
manufacturing technologies as well as the production lines for manufacturing of
large-scale composite constructions.
The aerodrome "Tretyakovo" relates to
the Production Center where the test and acceptance flights of all serial
aircraft produced by the Corporation are performed.
Production center No.2 (PC2) is
the oldest (founded in 1893) aircraft manufactuing plant of Russia (previously -
MMP "Znamya Truda " and MAPO). Since 1909 some tens thousand airplanes have been
produced at the plant including I-1, U-2, R-5, IL-2, IL-28, IL-38, Su-9, Yak-26,
famous fighters MiG-21, MiG-23 and MiG-29, passenger IL-14 and IL-18, light
Aviatika-MAI-890/890SKh. At the plant the nose section of "Buran" spaceship was
produced. Currently the plant is specialized in production of up-to-date
modifications of MiG-29 family fighters.
Within the framework of PC2
re-equipment it is realized the smooth reduction of power-intensive, labour
input and environmentally poor technologies and enhancement of capabilities in
machining with usage of modern processing centers.
At the plant the effective production
processes have been successfully mastered and applied:
• manufacture of large-size airframe power units with a wide application of
composite materials of different types;
• manufacture of large-size airframe welded aggregates from advanced steel,
titanium and aluminum-lithium alloys, including the application of electron-beam
welding and argon-arc welding of the equipment with numeric program control and
welding in controlled medium;
• the automated processes of parts machining, production of aggregates and
• shaping of sheet parts by elastic medium and manufacture of bicurvature skins,
different pipelines, honeycomb-composite units and mechanical rubber items;
• manufacture and tests of hydraulic and pneumatic aircraft units as well as
aggregates of fuel and electrical equipment;
• subassembly and final assembly of flight vehicles airframes, equipment
installation, adjustment and debugging of systems, leveling of flight vehicles.
Kalyazinsky Machine Building Plant was founded in 1967 as a subdivision
of a former plant "Znamya truda". Originally at production facilities of
Kalyazinsky Machine Building Plant there were manufactured the spares for the
technical support of military aircraft not produced currently but operated in
Air Force of many countries.
At present Kalyazinsky machine building
plant is provided with a modern production equipment, is included into
cooperation for manufacture of modern "MiG" brand fighters.
Svishchenko Alexander Alexeevich – Deputy General Director for Production is in
charge of the RAC "MiG" production activities.
