Large-Scale Casting Production Center Built
Pyongyang, June 21 (KCNA) -- A combined casting production center with largest capacity has taken its shape at the Ryongsong Machine Complex, a leading machine producer of the DPRK. All its processes are equipped with up-to-date equipment and technology.

The construction of this modern casting production center is a shining fruition of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's far-reaching plan for building an economic power and his wise leadership.

Visiting the complex several times in the new century, he specified orientation and ways for pushing back the frontiers of the latest science and advanced the militant task for building a world-leading casting production center and meticulously led this work.

The complex perfectly completed a blueprint for building Korean-style modern casting shop based on new ideas and conceptions and manufactured modern equipment including scores of rotating facilities and equipment by its own efforts, putting all the processes on ultra modern lines.

It developed and introduced rational programs for computer-aided control of casting production processes on the basis of experience drawn from the introduction of CNC technology and digital display devices to many facilities, thus realizing on the high level the work of putting the casting shop on a modern and IT basis.

It manufactured lots of major ordered equipment, including 90,000 cubic meter centrifugal compressor, by its own efforts and with its own technology through cooperation between the newly-built large casting shop and several other workshops and supplied them to several domains of the national economy including the gasification project construction site at the Hungnam Fertilizer Complex.

Scientists and technicians of the Hamhung Branch of the State Academy of Sciences, Pyongyang University of Mechanical Engineering, Hamhung University of Chemical Engineering, Hamhung University of Hydraulic Engineering, the Grand People's Study House and other units perfectly solved the scientific and technological problems arising in building the casting production center by pooling efforts with workers at the complex.
