We would like to introduce ourselves as
an ISO 9001:2000 Certified Company manufacturing Pistons,
Piston Rings - Steel Section Rings, Cast Iron Rings, Hump
Expander, Steel Shims, Non-Magnetic Alfin Rings for Automobiles,
Tractors and Diesel Engines for the last three decades.
The swift expansion of piston rings manufacturing
soon overtook our other activities and the decision was made
to concentrate on the production of Piston Rings, Hump Expanders,
and Steel Shims only.
With the continued growth of the business
and the increasing complexity of Casting, a new Induction
Furnace was introduced in 1991, later on centrifugal casting
was also introduced which also saw the starting of Production
of Non Magnetic Alfin Rings.
In 1998 a total update of our design office
was needed, this was also the year when we were accredited
with ISO 9000 Certificate. We installed a purpose built design
office with full 2D, 3D, and solid modeling facilities. We
also have a state of the art inspection department with a
reference standard Co-ordinate Measuring Machine and specially
modified computer controlled equipment to measure the ovality
and vertical profile to one tenth of a micron (.0001mm).
Our machining plant currently houses six
4-axis CNC machining centers, one 3-axis CNC vertical milling
machine, seven 2-axis CNC turning lathes and one 4-axis PC
controlled profile turning lathe along with numerous manual
and automatic conventional machines.
All of our machines are maintained to the
highest order and are capable of machining to very close tolerances
using the latest developments available in cutting tool technology.
The profile turning lathe that produces the ovality and vertical
profile, easily affords repeatability within +/- .005mm (.0002")
and normally produces a repeatability factor of +/- .002mm
(.000078") on diameter. We always work in close conjunction
with the customer to develop these critical profiles and,
because of our experience in this field excellent running
results are achieved initially and only occasionally are very
minor changes required to suit a particular engine's idiosyncrasies.
In late 2001 we installed state of the art 3D CAM (Computer
Aided Machining) software allowing us to machine small batch
prototypes from solid billets. The advantage of this is that
the customer can try various configurations before we make
any final tooling. This means that when the final design has
been arrived at, we can make a "no compromise" tooling.
If tooling is made first, and then design and development
continues, the customer may end up with a less than satisfied
product, which then requires further tooling to be made, again
at extra cost.
We meet customer satisfaction through stringent quality checks.
