High-speed Machining

The organised sector of the Indian machine tool industry has a come a long way after industrial policies were liberalised in the 1990s. In the last decade or so, with new technocrats emerging, the industry has witnessed many small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) replacing the space vacated by the shrinking of public sector ones or downsizing of big companies. The result is a more consolidated industry that is driven by cut-throat competition and a focus on technology. The challenge before

Tech Push for the Manufacturing Industry

An entire manufacturing process has many activities and operations that should ideally be monitored and controlled at several levels of pre-, during- and post-production. A modern manufacturing system has to be able to adapt to quick internal and external changes. To this end, a variety of successful models and control techniques have been developed in the last few years, which are based on the principles and tools of information technology (IT) and management science. At the technological level the current

New Age Generators

Rapid industrialisation is boosting the demand for diesel and gas generators. Diesel backup generators offer a lifeline in times of crisis. Considering the regular power outages in India, it poses hazards to public health and safety as critical services come to an operational halt. Blackouts in industrial areas can increase the risks to business operations, which may result in downtime and loss of revenue due to failure to carry out regular operations. In times of power outages due to grid

Supply Chain Management

A critical component in manufacturing is a robust supply chain. Advancements and improvements in supply chain are constant. A dynamic supply chain has several aspects to it, mainly in terms of technology. An average manufacturing company spends at least 1.5% of their revenue on technology that is mainly focussed on improving supply chain excellence. The four distinct areas that have been revolutionized by technological advancements are Visibility, Automation, Analytics and Collaboration. Backend Technology Advancements Today, a software designed to handle

Cutting Tools: Drilling & Boring

A manufacturer considers the investment in drilling and boring tools and assemblies most carefully, as these are the most critical operations that define the machining output in terms of surface texture or quality as also productivity. Any issues that would cause inferior quality, poor productivity or resultant tool wear would be costly for the manufacturer as these operations happen at an advanced stage of output. It is precisely for these reasons that the cutting tools industry continuously sees technology advances

Die & Mould Story

With state-of-the-art tooling facility, the die and mould industry is one of the most advanced with in-house design capability for moulds. The industry also has 3D based design process with high level of standardisation. With design facilities fully integrated with CAM and the ability to secure data control through access controlled servers, this is helping the industry reduce cycle times and lead times, lower labour costs with unattended machining. When industries such as the automotive and aerospace change designs regularly,
