Russian Firm Manufactures "Cyber Protected" Machine Tools

Holding High Precision Systems NPO, affiliated to Rostec, introduced a line of multi-purpose high-precision turning, turning and milling and milling processing centers with Russian computer numerical control system (CNC) "Olympus".

The developments will ensure cybersecurity and technological independence of critical Russian manufacturing industries, Rostec press release states.

Russian-made equipment is designed to replace foreign-made machine tools containing software and hardware "bookmarks" that allow blocking them remotely as well as transferring all the stock lists and production volumes at each individual industrial site to foreign suppliers. Russian new generation machine tools guarantee a high level of information protection and the absence of hidden opportunities for unauthorized access to systems from abroad.

"Import substitution in this sphere allows to get rid of technological dependence, expensive services and risks related to sanctional restrictions. But, first of all, we are talking about information protection and the uninterrupted operation of critical industries, where it is necessary to ensure reliable operation of equipment and to exclude remote intervention into the relevant IT systems. These are the tasks that the Russian computer numerical control system "Olympus" is solving”, - Sergey Abramov, industrial director of the armament cluster of Rostec State Corporation, comments.

At the moment, the leaders in the production of CNC systems supplied to Russia are Siemens, Mitsubishi Electric, HAAS, Rexroth Bosch Group, Fagor Automation, FANUC, Fidia and others.
