This material is specific for its abrasion resistance, and increase of its hardness at mechanical stress up to 55 HRC. It is hardened at the production up to 32-40 HRC so that the final product fulfils the standard UIC 893-0. The company cooperates with the first-rate European suppliers to provide high-quality products. For bushes, pins and push buttons company uses material C45 or C55, for push buttons mainly 20MnCr5.

High-quality tools, managing system and operation system of the machine provide high quality and serial production. In 2019 and 2020 company buy another machines. It nearly doubles their production potential.
Vertical machining centres
The company is using MAS vertical machining centres for the production of non-rotation parts, such as upper and lower slide unit, manganese plates and others. Machines of this brand are characterized by the quality and accuracy.
Circular finishing and drying vibrators
To provide high-quality surface of the finished products, as well as for edge deburring, KONEX is using circular finishing and drying vibrators. The finished products are rehashed in circle vibration barrels and edges are deburred by abrasive stone. For drying and polishing of products, corn pulp of some fraction is being used.
