BelMag is one of the leading Russian producers of suspension components (Tier 2).
BelMag is a family-owned company. Started from nothing it was founded in 1996. But just in 3 short years company rapidly expanded, opening its own production and assembling complex.
Today BelMag is a leading research and development center. Our production network includes stamping, heat treatment, machining, assembling and a world class test center.
Design, assembly, high-quality machining are among our key competence. With the use of advanced technologies and high-tech equipment BelMag produces reliable suspension parts and components (suspension ball joints, inner ball joints, outer ball joints, stabilizer links and steering links).
BelMag is a single entity and a united team of progressive-minded professionals.
The very name of the company — AO NPO BelMag — already defines it as R&D and production center since «NPO» stands for «scientific-production association». In order to develop new designs considering all technical capabilities and therefore to avoid long delays between the start of development and serial production, BelMag, as many other such facilities, decided to consolidate research and production activities into a single entity.
More than 300 employees work together to build on the success of BelMag: there are engineering, research and development specialists,
3 professors, 7 PhD and 2 Research doctorates.
Moreover, BelMag works closely with Nosov Magnitogorsk and Bauman Moscow state technical universities.
Key stages in the development of an auto parts leader in the Russian market.
High quality as a reference point.
The main strategic target of the company is enhancing the effectiveness constantly. To reach it BelMag follows the basic principle which involves a continuing process and production quality improvement.
Since 1999 BelMag develops and refines the quality policy and quality management system in accordance with contemporary international standards. Currently QMS is certified under international quality standard IATF 16949:2016 in the area of design and manufacturing attachment parts for suspension and steering.
Having successfully passed audits manufacturing processes and existing quality management system of the company are always approved for supply on the part of Russian and European OEM and Tier I, among which:
One of a kind company.
Numerous awards in Russian and international competitions confirm deserved recognition of the BelMag product quality. Each year the company is rewarded with the golden diploma of “100 Best Goods of Russia” program since 2000. BelMag products are always awarded by Russian auto market experts as “Automotive Component of the Year”.
The most significant evaluation of the BelMag products is two-fold possession of “Best Supplier” awarded by Adam Smith Institute,
and “European Quality” awarded by European business-assembly. Moreover, BelMag is a Russian government award finalist in the sphere
Magnitogorsk: the city of heavy industry and rich culture.
Located in the city with a unique history and location BelMag along with other large enterprises and companies became an important part of the Russian metallurgical center.
Magnitogorsk is a city of contrasts which combines pragmatism from the West culture and wisdom from the East one. The center of the city is Ural River which is also the boundary between Europe and Asia. Despite of the fact that Magnitogorsk is a classic example of soviet socialist built tradition the city managed to catch the wave of the new age, and that made it contemporary and prosperous in all the areas.
Geographic location of Magnitogorsk provides effective logistics in the country and beyond.
Supply to OEM is the most valuable and evident recognition of BelMag production quality.
Constant improvement and renovation of the test and manufacturing equipment set-up allows implementing scientific and technological potential of the company to the full extent.
Therefore the natural result of it is product manufacture, the quality of which was greatly appreciated by millions of car drivers throughout the country and leading Russian and European OEM.
Scientific approach and competence in design and auto parts manufacture provided the company more than 10 year experience
in manufacturing and supplying products to the leading OEM.
Blank production as a basis for technological process.
One of the main conditions of manufactured product quality is the quality of its components.
The structure of the company includes a blank production complex with the high level of automatic processes so that performance time and work input can be optimized.
Provision of the company allows implementing the cold and hot forging processes (stamping and die forging) with subsequent heat treatment and 100% blank quality control.
BelMag machining has all necessary equipment for ball joint components manufacturing.
Machining processes represent one of the main core competencies of BelMag. High level of productivity and automation of technological process allows machining operation of components immediate in the enterprise.
Extensive fleet of technological equipment for machining operation provides implementation of the whole operational range:
All the machining processes for components involve 100% quality control.
BelMag has a complex of automated welding equipment.
Enhancing constant technological re-equipment BelMag acquired welding equipment providing 100% quality control made by leading global manufacturers.
Apart from productivity and automation high levels BelMag welding equipment records all technological parameters of weldments and keeps the information in the special database permanently. It allows to organize an absolute identification and traceability of all the products manufactured on the equipment.
BelMag unique assembling equipment set-up has no analogues in Russia.
The process of ball joint assembling is produced on technological equipment produced exclusively for BelMag by world leader in design and specialized technological equipment manufacture.
The equipment allows producing complete assembly cycle of ball joint includes, ultrasonic welding of a finished product and ensures compliance with parameters during an assembly process.
All parameters of a technological process are recorded and kept in a separate database providing complete identification and product traceability.
To produce truly high-quality product is to design a product.
Designing new products BelMag research and development department puts an emphasis on each component, specifically, not only on the shape, but also on the material of a product as well as technologies used in manufacture.
BelMag works closely with the leading specialists of Nosov Magnitogorsk and Bauman Moscow state technical universities, therefore scientific activity of the company is more than successful and still has all prospects for prosperity.
One of the results of scientific approach in auto parts developing and designing is a range of patents and inventions, practical value
of which is traced on different stages of company development.
BelMag has in-house validation center that has no analogues in Russia.
Laboratories of the company are fitted with equipment produced by leading global manufacturers as well as equipment manufactured
in-house by BelMag specialists.
Durability and wear tests are performed according to domestic and foreign car manufacturers’ requirements. Such tests fully simulate climatic conditions (heat, cold, water, road dust etc.).
The results of these tests are so realistic that it allows to avoid expensive and time-consuming road tests.
BelMag scientific activity is an essential part of the company's life.
Since the time the company was founded it works closely with Nosov Magnitogorsk and Bauman Moscow state technical universities.
Most of engineering specialists in BelMag are graduates of these universities.
In 2001 in Nosov Magnitogorsk state technical university the Department of technology, certification and car service was opened, the head of which was Doctor of Technical Science, professor and today BelMag CEO — Igor Gun.
With the lead of BelMag CEO, Igor Gun, and in cooperation with university researchers scientific direction in the field of research and improvement of suspension and steering parts manufacturing process successfully operates.
One of the outcomes of such cooperation is 3 Doctors of Technical Science and 7 Candidates of Technical Science working in Belmag.
