To be in the top ten: Perm Engines have chosen excellent quality workers

JSC UEC-Perm Engines (part of United Engine Corporation of Rostec) became a place for the excellent quality workers awarding. Every year, a special committee selects ten highly qualified workers from the team of eight thousand engine builders, who during the year have established themselves as excellent employees: they made defect-free parts, worked on self-control, improved their qualifications and professional skills, shared their experience with young specialists.

This year the honorary title "Excellence in Quality" was awarded to ten company workers: certificates and silver badges were handed out to die press operator Ivan Mednikov, heat treater Anatoly Fefilov, molder operator Alexei Yermakov, painter Lyudmila Shadrina, NC machine operator Viktor Sapozhnikov, polisher Oleg Shirinkin, assembly fitter Andrey Belyakov, operator of coating application machines Sergey Namitov, drilling machine operator Aleksey Totmianin and test mechanic Andrey Zakharov.

Viktor Sapozhnikov, operator of NC machine of the mechanical welding shop, has been working at the company for 7 years. Colleagues point out that a wide range of his professional skills allows him to significantly reduce the cost of time resources and increase work productivity. In addition, Viktor pays great attention to teaching student trainees from technical schools.

- I am engaged in parts turning. My main task is to accurately "catch" all dimensions specified by tolerances. I operate two machines at once, so I have to act quickly. I have already developed a "muscle memory" for all operations. I share all ins and outs of the trade with the younger generation.

Lyudmila Shadrina has a rare profession for an engine builder - a painter of paints and varnishes. Her duties include applying paint not to the walls of buildings, but to parts of aircraft engines and gas turbines.

- I have been with the plant for 19 years and I love my job very much. Despite the seeming simplicity, this is a very responsible work: first you need to carefully apply an anti-corrosion coating that protects the material from damage, and only then the necessary pattern. I try to do it well and efficiently right away, so as not to redo it later.

According to Nadezhda Bolbat, Quality Director of UEC-PE, one thing that unites the excellent quality workers is that they make high demands on themselves and their work, they flawlessly perform any work they undertake, and each of them has time to share experience and knowledge with youngsters.
