The company’s industrial base includes an integrated Commercial Vehicle factory in Pithampur, producing Eicher trucks. The organization also has manufacturing capabilities in Thane, Dewas and SEZ Pithampur, dedicated to manufacturing of transmission and differential gear boxes and gear box assemblies.
The state-of-the-art plant in Pithampur has access to top line manufacturing processes, which includes cab weld shop with robotic welding, CED paint shop, integrated testing facilities, 100% hot test facility for engines and a lean and scalable manufacturing set up. The machine shop has 17 Horizontal machining centers, special purpose machine for critical operations like crank bore, cam bore, piston bore and Joint face finish machining. The transmission assembly section has hydraulic press for pressing of bearings and a sound proof enclosure for checking abnormal noise in the transmission units being produced. The plant also has robotic welding facilities for main body and under body welding. A pre-delivery automated inspection facility is also there to check the speed and brake related parameters, turning angle and wheel alignment issues before delivery of the final product to the dealer/customer. The plant has an annual production capacity of 48,000 units.
As a part of the product development process, the organization has a fully equipped vehicle and engine development center with fatigue lab, complete virtual vehicle integration capability, different simulations, in-house competence for electrics and electronics integration, a complete bus structure and interior trim design capabilities.
The manufacturing set up in Thane houses progressive machines, which include Gleason CWP Cutting Machines, Gleason Conifex Machines for Straight Bevel Gear, Pfauter, Liebherr, Mitsubishi (CNC) and Cleveland Hobbing machines, state-of-the-art heat treatment facilities and CNC bore and Cylindrical grinding machines.
The plant in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh houses technologically advanced machines and equipments which includes a battery of CNC Hobbing & Shaving Machines, Shaping Machines, Reishauer Gear Grinder RZ400, Gleason CWP Cutting Machines, Gleason Conifex Machines for Straight Bevel Gear, state-of-the-art Continuous Gas Carburising Furnace (from Aichelin) with fully PLC controlled with robotics for Press Quenching and PLC Controlled Sealed Quench Furnaces (with hot oil quenching for reduced distortions) and Shaving Cutter Re-sharpening machine from Gleason Hurth. The advanced technology available at this plant ensures that the transmission gears and shafts manufactured here are of the highest quality.
