The Moscow Gauge Factory (Mostoavski Zavod Jalibr) is located on Taroslavl choose, in the Shcherbakov District of Moscow, near the Windom station. 2. Erection of the factory began in 1930 and was completed in 1932. In 1941, the factory was evacuated to Chelyabinsk, where it worked for two years under the name of Chelyabinsk ICalibr. In 191+3. it was returned to its old site in Moscow; and the Chelyabinsk Tool Uaotory (Che?yabinsld Instra- mentalnpr Zavod), sometimes called the Chelyabinsk Measuring Instruments Factory (Ohelyabineki Zavod Iomeritelaprkh Instrumentov), remained at Chelyabinsk. The Moscow Gauge Factory is controlled 1W the Chief Administration of Tool Industry of the Ministry of Machine Tool Construction of the VS88 (Glavaoye Upravieniye Instrumentalnoi Pronyshiennosti Ministerstva s t a n k o stroyeniya 5 ) . 4. The factory occypies an area of about 40,000 sq. m. and is housed in. one ten-storied building and several long four-storied buildings. rpa of Production S. The factory produces control and measuring instruments and appliances of various kinds and sizes. leery-year new types of instruments and appliances have been added to the production. a. Gauges produced include the following: All kinds of staple gauges (ekoba) for measuring shafts. Two-sided, sheet limit staple gauges (predelnnya dvu1?storonq-a listoveya skDba).

All kinds and sises of plug gauges (probka-kelibr) for measuring holes and etoaster-ganger (kaontr-kmi.ibr) for staple ages, A small numbs,. of ring gauges. A large number of thread. gauges. e.g., thread plug gauges for sorts, thread ring gauges and staple gauges for bolts (external thread). In 1947, adjustable thread ring gauges were produced. In 1948,produotiou of thread roller gauges was began. .(These are gradually supplanting the production of thread ring gauges.) Gauges for smooth cortical articles. In 1947, serial pro- duction on a lar,,e scale was started of gauges for conical thread (plug and thread), e.g., for lining pipes of various diameters up to 3,6.75 inches. Gauges for oheokin#; linear dimensions (sheet gauges), clearance gauges (shohup) (p.ates with parallel measuring, planes for checking clearance3 between surfaces). Profile gauges for checking surfaces of curved articles. be Appliances and instrirnents for technical measurements include: plane-parallel plate3, 30 x 9 mm. plates with working dimensions up to 10 mm., 35 z c Bun. plates with working dimensions over 10 mm. These plates are pr.4uoed in sets, generally composed of 37 or $j (sic; 387) plates. o. Measuring instrume:its with linear vernier include sliding calipers and sliding depth Fund height gauges. Sliding calipers are produced with vernier gradtations of 0.1 mm, 0.05 mm, and 0.02 mm. d, Micrometers for external measurements, micrometric depth gauges, and pin gauges (s3ity1 mans).' e. Various mechanics; lever appliances, indicators of clockwork type, minimeters, passe:ietere, microcatore (micro-indicators?). In 1946, the factory begesc serial production of indicator inside calipers. f. Pneumatic appliaztses for e.zaot measurement of external and internal dimensions (ma Y for measurement of boles). In 1947, serial pro- duction of pneum;io eppliances on the princi_Ae of the rotameter was begun; these tppliances are capable of measuring exactly one- half of a micron. C.

X. Instruments for measurement of flatness and straightness, such as various plates and testing rulers. Cast-iron plates of the following sizes: from 100 x 200 mm. to 1000 x V00 mm; these are subdivided into four classes (0. let, 2nd, 3rd) according to degree of precision. These plates are employed according to the "spots on paint" method (po metoou pyaten na krasku). 1. Testing rulers of various types; gauged rulers, angle rulers, cast iron bridges (mostik) (up to 500 ma.), double-T gauge steel rulers (stalwo lineiki dvukhtavrovogo seohenlya). Those sppliances work on the light slit (svetovaya shohel) and "on paint" {na krasku) methods. M. Several types of automatic machines, e.g., for the checking and sorting of bullets. Thee machines sort bullets into usable and unusable categories according to length. diameter, and ogival part of bullet. n. Automatic machines for sorting balls and rollers for bearings. Rowever, production of these mechanical automatic machines is gradually being replaced IV that of automatic appliances with electrocontact heads. Seven different types of these appliances have already been produced, e.g., for automatic checking of grooves of ball bearing rings, and appliances for the automobile and tractor industry. In 1947, the factory produced electroinductive appliances (electroinductive measuring heads). iYc Informants were unable to give, the total output because of the great variety of types and sizes.. One estimates the'total output of gauges at about three million, including about one million staple goups (skoba) of various kinds, about one million templates (shablon) and counter-templates (kontrsbablon), and one million smooth plug gauges, smooth ring gauges, thread plug gauges, thread staple gauges, and Johannsonss staple gauges. (Washington Comments Presumably annual. production.) b. Output of measuring instruments is also large. Informants are unable to give exact figures but they are of the opinion that in 1948 the factory will produce about 1.50,000 micrometers (as a result of the installation of two continuous operation lines in the micrometer shop) and about 240,000 sliding calipers (as a result of improvements in the continuous operation line). In 1940, output of sliding calipers was about 35,000; but in 1947, after the installation of continuous line production, output reached about 200,000. Continuous line ro- auction reduced the cost of sliding calipers by about one-third (from 30 to 20 rubles). It is also planned to transfer the production of rotating centers to a continuous operation line. c, In 1947, over 100,000 Johannsonss gauges were produced. d. Production of micrometers amounted in 1940 to about 20,000 of two types; in 1947, to about 1059000 of four different types (in January 1947, slightly over 5,000; in December 1947, 11,200)., In 1948, output was increasing further (April, over 13.000; August, about 14,000); during the first six months of 1948, 76,000 were produced. Three categories of micrometers for outside measurements with staple gauge were produced: "00, "lst",and "2nd"; these categories refer to the precision of the micrometers. The working strobe (rabooby khod).of the micrometer screw is usually 25 mm. and the thread of the screw (shag vinta) 0.5 mm. 4 arr/c0 WfttICMS ONLY Approved For Release 1999/09/08 : CIA-RDP82-00457R002200180004-8 Approved For Release 1999/09/08 : CIA-RDP82-00457R00220?gPO084a-8 -TZM= f O= .
