BSW research facilities will be strengthened with new equipment.

In 2021, the science and technology facilities of OJSC "BSW - management company of "BMC" holding" will be replenished with 9 types of modern research equipment worth 1,7 million rubles. This technical equipment will allow specialists of the enterprise to carry out tests necessary to improve quality of the output product and master its new types.

At issue is the purchase of machines, systems and units that will be used mainly for the development of rolling and steel cord and wire production. For example, a motorized system for examination of microstructure and automatic assessment of steel contamination with non-metallic inclusions will allow metallographic examinations of metal products to be carried out by means of automated method i.e. without subjective influence of a metallographic laboratory assistant. A quantitative assessment with statistical data processing capability is necessary in the development of such innovative product as hot-rolled or heat-treated rolled product for the automotive industry and the production of bearings.

Financing for the purchase of new research equipment for BSW which has had the status of the scientific organization since 2017, will be allocated from the Innovation found of the Gomel regional executive committee also from the works own funds  and the funds of the republican budget provided for scientific,  scientific and technological and innovative activities.

It's worth to remark that for the last 4 years when BSW have been working with the status of the scientific organization over 4 million rub. has already been allocated for the development of its facilities for research and development which made it possible to purchase 12 units of various equipment. Real results of such investments are worthwhile.  In 2020, the volume of innovative product shipped by BSW exceeded 590 thousand tons to the amount of almost 606 million rub.  In 2020, the share of innovative products in the total volume of BSW shipments was 23.3 percent.Over 80% of the total volume of the developed innovative products was exported. It is referred to rolled products for the automotive industry, pipes, steel cord, etc., which are supplied to more than 20 countries in West Europe, the USA and African countries.
