IN FIFTH GEAR
GEAR MANUFACTURING IS HIGHLY INTRICATE AND NEEDS ADVANCED MACHINES AND A CLOSED KNOW HOW

ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING COMPONENT to be manufactured is gears. Though few would give it a second look, it requires a certain kind of expertise to manufacture.

There are several aspects to gear manufacturing. Considering that gear manufacturing landscape is often changing, it is important to choose an efficient and accurate machining method. Sanjeev Vasdev, MD, Flash Electronics, says, “The core competence of cutting tool suppliers is their ability to design the cutting tools and give us the complete technical end product. On pour part, we only give them the parameters of the cutting tool. We don’t design the cutting tool, and the company designs and presents us the design and output. For us, tool life is important and the designing capability is important.”

Exploring and adapting new technologies is inherent in most companies today. There is a need to keep pace with the changing technological scenario of Industry 4.0 in the face of covid-19. Nishit Behera, executive director, business development & strategy, RSB Transmissions, says, “We have a subsidiary, I-Design Engg Solutions, who are into R&D for more than a decade. We continue to upgrade our technology with our partner, Eugen Klein (Germany) in terms of managing business through systematic approach (TQM), maintaining highest quality, optimal resource utilisation, total involvement of all resources including human, cultural change through continual improvement and PDCA approach in every operation/process for increased business performance.”
