• How to assemble cars "Lifan"
Another company in which I specifically went in Cherkessk, the first private car plant in Russia "Derways", successfully collecting cars of Chinese brands. Offering picture story, depicting highlights assembly - from unloading containers with CKD-sets prior to loading in the finished vehicle transporters.
A few words about the company Derways. Name Derveis composed of the names of the founders, it is widely known in the country of the tree brothers, and the English word "road". Initially, in 2002, it was a small car division of the holding "Mercury", which is two years later released an SUV of its own design "Cowboy". In 2005, the Romanian company APO, which is a supplier of chassis, went bankrupt, and the owners have shifted production to the assembly of Chinese cars. Kits made in China, imported to Russia, then to collect and sell. Now this brand Lifan, Khaimah, Geely and Great Wall Hover. Production capacity of the plant - 130 000 vehicles per year, at least 1,000 people work at the plant, which is essential for Cherkessk. So, let's see how it looks. But in any case before it warn that the picture story was filmed in the summer, a few months ago, there may be inaccuracies, please treat with understanding.
At a checkpoint. Right - administrative building. Behind him is a large manufacturing plant, 23, 5 hectares.
Let's go directly to the customs area and the area where the containers are stored with a complete set of arriving here by sea from China, Chongqing, where Lifan Industrial Group headquarters.
Mashinokomlekty unloaded, something delivered to the warehouse, which at once went to the welding shop.
Let's go to the welding shop.
The welding shop is divided into three sections - sub-assemblies, the main section of the welding line and linkage and alignment, where the body is sent to the painting (in the photo line at the end of the hall).
Welding partially automated and partially manual labor is used.

Kraskosmesitelnaya room. Since the. Production of dangerous, it can only be seen through the glass.
Line preparation for painting body 14 consists of baths in which each body by immersion in a special cleaning solution passes first, and then it is applied to the primary primer by electrodeposition, after which the body is again washed.
Then the body fall on a line on which there is a seam and drying treatment at high temperature.
Cleaning the body before painting.
8 painting robots in Japan applied enamel. On the painting operation takes just 5 minutes, and to change the paint only 10 seconds.
The whole process is automated and controlled from outside the spray booth.
Paint shop consists of three floors, painting is done on the second to pull the car to the first, a special lift provided.
After staining body enters the drying chamber in which it dwells for 45 minutes at a temperature of about 160 degrees.
Then move the body in the assembly shop.
Before you go to the assembly shop, we went to the adjacent room, where another set of assembly line.
It looks like a brand-new assembly plant prior to the installation of equipment in it:
These photos I made in the summer, now, I think, the equipment is already doustanovit - January 2014 Derveis begins to produce new models, perhaps it will be in here.
And this is a general view of the current assembly plant.
There are two lines, they can produce up to 80,000 cars a year.
chassis assembly area.
Plot finishing assembly.
Ready car leaves the production line. On the line, by the way, going at the same time cars of different brands.
Land diagnostics of German manufacture.
Then the car stripped to the warehouse of finished products.
Warehouse is a large part of the plant.
Car dealers Shipping is carried out by a private company "South-Trans", in the presence of which is not less than 150 transporters.
Even after I shot a photo spread with news feeds we received information that the plant started assembling cars Taiwanese brand Luxgen.
Manufactured products, as usual, I do not comment, but I will say a few words about my personal impressions - plant a large (we spent half an hour and saw not all), clean, modern, photography was interesting, and I'm glad that such production has in the Caucasus . Good luck to you, good quality products and new customers!
