"Sovelmash" innovative center
In order to commercialize the "Slavyanka" technology on the world market, it is planned to build "Sovelmash" design and engineering technology department (D&E).
Here the team of engineer Dmitriy Alexandrovich Duyunov will develop electric motors using the "Slavyanka" technology of any complexity, for various applications, according to the customer needs.
In 2019, the Moscow government supported the innovative project, recognizing its significance and relevance. The result of this support was "Sovelmash" obtaining the resident status in the state special economic zone "Technopolis "Moscow". A land plot at the "Alabushevo" site was provided to the project for lease with the right of subsequent purchase.
"Sovelmash" will also receive other support from the state: tax incentives, infrastructure in the form of communications, motorways and railroads, as well as access to the free trade zone. All of this will help the enterprise to develop innovative business in optimal conditions.
How will "Sovelmash" earn profit?
Developing efficient electric motors using the combined winding technology "Slavyanka" is one of the main lines within which the "Sovelmash" design and engineering department will earn profit.
The customers of the innovative center will be manufacturers of electric transport, machine tools and equipment, household appliances, plants, military, aviation and industrial enterprises. The "Sovelmash" team will be able to develop electric motors for any industry.
The cost of motor development service on average starts from $ 30 million and depends on the purpose, size and complexity of the product. "Sovelmash" is capable of completing up to 3 such orders per year. Today the company and its potential customers are entering into agreements of intent to cooperate.

In the "Sovelmash" laboratory, specialists test electric rotating machines both with the "Slavyanka" combined winding and the classic types.
State-of-the-art testing and measuring equipment is installed here. It enables testing a wide range of electric motors and obtaining high-precision results. The laboratory is used to test motors developed by "Sovelmash" and conduct comparative tests to demonstrate the advantages of the "Slavyanka" technology.
The equipment passed state certification and verification, so the test results are officially recognized.
The testing area is a place where "Sovelmash" can produce prototype models and individual batches of electric motors with the combined winding "Slavyanka" today.
The company independently manufactures critical elements of electric motors. This approach allows not to give the drawings of unique products to third parties, which reduces the risk of information leakage.
Vacuum die casting and production of non-standard product parts are carried out in the "Sovelmash" casting shop. The casting unit, pelletizer, vacuum degasser, induction heater and muffle furnace operate here.
Vacuum die casting allows making high-quality castings.
In the workshop, there is a winding table, winding machine and some other equipment necessary for automated winding of electric motor sections.
The main tooling for winding the sections is made by applying additive technologies with our own 3D printer and is being continuously fine-tuned.
