External assembly

imgThe external assembly department is a separate department of ŽĎAS, a. s. Its task is to carry out equipment disassembly, repair, assembly, adjustment and putting into operation. Equipment is assembled with using ŽĎAS´ facilities. Work is carried out in good quality and on schedule. Expert and linguistic knowledge of the staff guarantees good work results even abroad. This department also carries out disassembly and displacement of very heavy machinery even in cramped conditions. The external assembly staff have successfully assembled complete industrial plants, such as the medium and fine section rolling mill at Poldi Kladno, medium section rolling mill at NH Ostrava Kunčice and have supervised the assembly of the medium section rolling mills in Iran, Turkey, Romania and billet rolling mills in Pakistan and former Yugoslavia. They also participate in complete overhauls of machines and equipment.

Reconstruction and modernization

Sectional repairs and complete overhauls of individual machines and production lines are mostly induced by costly maintenance of existing equipment, its low output and hard ecology requirements. On the basis of these facts, most repairs are routed to the spheres that include:

  • Structural design and layout of requested parameters
  • Repair and replacement of active mechanical parts
  • Replacement of seals
  • Reconstruction and modernization of drive units
  • Installation of control and automation elements

Market trends include enhancement of product quality, restriction of production tolerances and introduction of new types. Economic pressure on price reduction is being exerted continuously. Market requirements can be met by way of either new products or reconstructions and modernizations of existing equipment. For both variants, ŽĎAS have available teams of specialists being ready to meet respective requirements.

General supplies of equipment

ŽĎAS, a. s. also deliver complete equipment on turnkey basis. It means that, in addition to design, project, production and assembly, ŽĎAS provide individual parts, such as hydraulic cylinders, power units or manifold blocks. In particular cases, design and production are carried out at the company ŽĎAS. Available are design centres as well as up-to-date production workshops provided with machine-tools and surface finish centres. In addition to hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic power units and control manifolds are made.


In the advanced industrial world, relation to customers is also given by a concern over after-production service and maintenance of the equipment delivered. Therefore, the ŽĎAS´ service centre is available twenty-four hours a day and there is no sphere which experienced service engineers would be unable to cope with and find solution on how to ensure trouble-free operation of the equipment supplied.
