Professional excellence competition - like the Olympics for the sportsmen

For the 11th time Perm held “The best in profession” competition. This year it was hosted by the Perm Regional branch of the Russian Engineering Union. 

Over 70 young employees of Perm industrial companies and the students of professional educational institutions from the city and the region demonstrated a high level of professional competence in the following nominations: “Multi-purpose lathe operations”, “Multi-purpose milling machine operations”, “Machining and fitter’s works inspector”, “Electric fitter for electrical equipment maintenance”, “Production cell foreman” and “Computer aided manufacturing”.  

UEC-PE specialists were the best in two nominations. The first place among production cell foremen was awarded to Yakov Antonov, shift foreman of a die-forging cell.

- The task at the competition was interesting – to build a bridge from paper to withstand a load of 3 kg minimum. I succeeded in coordinating the work of my colleagues and won. Such contests help you to develop yourself and gain new skills.     


One more victory was achieved by UEC-PE specialists in the CAM contest. Design engineer Konstantin Yermakov, CNC machine and manipulator setter Vladislav Kantuganov, CNC machine operator Aleksei Pankratov and aircraft engine assembly fitter Demid Tarasov designed, programmed and assembled the planetary gearbox – a mechanism for the torque transfer and force distribution. According to the jury, their design proved to be quite viable and practically applicable. The winners believe that it is the coordinated team work that ensures successful completion of the production tasks in time.

For our specialists this competition is like the Olympics for the sportsmen.
