Rába grants

NBT - Corporate Investment Support Program

Already in 2016, the General Assembly of Rába approved a significant technology development and capacity expansion investment program for the Undercarriage business. The aim of the development is to modernize the production technology of key products and to increase emissions while improving efficiency and quality.

To help finance the developments, the company supplemented the above program with its other two business lines, into a total of approximately HUF 12.4 billion worth of projects and submitted a successful application for the investment support program for large companies announced by the Goverment. The amount of support received varies from one subsidiary to another and from one site to another, between 25 and 35%, and is approximately HUF 3.2 billioin at the gruop level.

In addition to the modernization of technology, the program also includes related infrastructure, logistics and tooling developments. As a first step in implementation, contracts were signed to procure the necessary equipment and resources.

During the technology development and capacity expansion investment program, Rába's market share and role in the global automotive industry will be further strengthened. With the completion of the developments, it is planned that every second or third European truck will roll off assembly lines with a front axle manufactured at Rába.

Development and expansion of the product range of Rába Futómű Kft. 

In 2013, Rába Futómű Kft. submitted a successful application to the National Research, Development and Innovation Fund. With the nearly HUF 32 million non-refundable subsidy won in this way, it was possible to develop and expand the company's chassis product range.

The company launched a development program with the support of the National Research, Development and Innovation Fund within the framework of the project "Development and expansion of the chassis product range of Rába Futómű Kft.". The investment took place between 2013 and 2016.
Within the framework of the project with a total value of nearly HUF 130 million, commercial vehicle undercarriages and undercarriage-related components (such as wheel loading systems) were developed for agricultural and other applications, thus expanding the company's product portfolio and supplementing the products already in production.

In the program, the employees of the company, on the one hand, have a so-called a rotary sealing system (CTI) has been developed to reduce the ground pressure of vehicles by regulating the tire pressure, thus preventing excessive soil compaction during agricultural work.
In addition, a multi-stage drive unit has been developed that is typically used in bus applications. Due to the compactness of the engine, an intelligent, pressurized lubrication system has also been created.

With all these developments, Rába entered new areas, as these systems were not previously part of the fund's competencies. The systems implemented during the project, which are closely related to the undercarriages, also contribute to the expansion of the transport content, so that the company is able to meet the diverse, growing needs of the partner companies at a higher level and proactively address the growing market challanges.

Development of basic lubrication system for undercarriages -
r
esearch and development project with European Union support at Rába Futómű Kft.

In 2012, Rába Futómű Kft. submitted an application for the Economic Development Operational Program of the New Széchenyi Plan. With the support of the European Union, the company had the opportunity to create intelligent oiling systems.

Rába Futómű Kft. has launched a research and development programme with the support of the European Union in the framework of the project "Development of a basic lubrication system for running gears". The company's GOP application was deemed eligible for funding by the evaluation committee, which awarded almost HUF 215 million in non-refundable grants. The development was implemented between 2012 and 2015.

Launched in the summer of 2012, the main goal of the project was to develop an intelligent lubrication system for high-performance agricultural undercarriages that increases cooling and lubrication efficiency using mechatronic devices. By using such systems, - primarily the so-called by minimizing oil agitation losses -, the mechanical loss of the chassis is reduced, the efficiency of the vehicle is increased, its consumption is improved thus more cost-effective and environmentally friendly operation is realized. Mechatronic systems are able to provide the chassis with extra content that provides significant added value and allows for adaptive oil consumption during operation, resulting in more reliable operation.

During the development, we built a new competitive know-how base. The created system can be used in the development of other products, so not only in the field of agriculture, but also in the field of bus and truck chassis. With the introduction of new simulation methods, we can examine the conformity of products at an early stage of design, thus increasing the efficiency of the entire development process.

Within the framework of the project, our colleagues specialized in the field of mechatronics. In our equipment, we carried out significant new developments, design and testing activities that were necessary for the success ful completion of the project. During the implementation of the research and development program, Rába Futómű Kft. closely cooperated with Bay Zoltán Applied Research Public Benefit Nonprofit Kft. and with several departments of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.

Complex technology development at Rába Futómű Kft.

In 2013, Rába Futómű Kft. submitted a successful application within the framework of the Economic Development Operational Program. With the non-refundable support of nearly HUF 625 million won in this way, the company had the opportunity to develop complex technology and expand production capacity.

Rába Futómű Kft. has launched a complex development programme with the support of the European Union in the framework of the project "Technology development and production capacity expansion". The investment, which consists of equipment acquisition, software and real estate development, was implemented between 2013 and 2015.

Within the framework of the project with total value of more than two billion forints, 10 new individual machines were purchased, which effectively support the processes, related to the production of the undercarriage.

Also within the framework of the project, the so-called "clean assembly shop" was built on 8600 square meters in the spare parts assembly plant of Rába Futómű Kft. The works carried out were aimed at the modernisation of the area reserved for assembly activities. As a result, the infrastructure, visual appearance and systems of the site have been renewed.

As a part of the software development module, Rába's corporate governance system, Oracle software, was migrated and customized, which thus more effectivel supports the daily activities of employees. In addition, the new Microsoft licenses acquired have upgraded the company's office applications. New software allows you to work faster, more efficiently, more securely.

Overall, the project, launched in 2013, will contribute to the modernization of production capacities, the acceleration of the process of technology change and the development of infrastructure. Thanks to the implemented developments, the company is able to satisfy the needs of the partner companies with increased capacity, more modern technology and higher standards.
