As a member of the Hero Group, India‘s largest motorcycle manufacturer, MUNJAL AUTO INDUSTRIES LIMITED manufactures sheet metal parts and press dies. We interviewed Mr. Umakant Raut - GM and Mr. Mahesh - Manager. They are using Our MVR x 2 and MVR-FM x1 Double-column, 5-face milling machine at “Bawal Plant & central Tool Room” located in Rewari District, India.
Munjal Auto Industries Limited (MAIL) is manufacturing Complete Exhaust Systems, Spoke Rim, Steel Wheel Rim, Fuel Tank, BIW parts, and so on.
MAIL has assembly shop with welding capabilities and produces more than 22 types of exhaust systems for motorcycles and scooters. The exhaust system Capable to withstand temperatures up to 600 ° C.
MAIL’s Press Tool products consists of forming Dies , Trimming Dies and assemblies of press tools. At Present their Competency lies at two wheel such as motorcycles and scooters, but contemplating to expand in four wheel segments shortly .
For example, we process Press Dies to press covers and tanks used in the exhaust systems of motorcycles and scooters. There are very large varieties of parts ranging 150-200 kinds. Each one has different shape and sizes depending on variants of motorcycles , scooters and cars , therefore we need to deal with large varieties and growing customer’s choices . In addition, we make wooden cores for castings.
It is our Challenge to cope with rapidly changing Industries' need and up coming variants to retain our competency and growth.
At Our Company, there are 3 numbers Double-column, 5-face milling machine of Mitsubishi. We do machining of our products , from rough to finish stage . We are quite happy with the performance and after- sales service supports of three machines.
I think it's excellent. Before the introduction of Mitsubishi machines, we only used smaller machining centers, but we had trouble with the Z-axis dropping during a power outage, for example. This was a serious problem because the die takes a long time to process and the power often fails during the process. With MVR, of course, that's gone.
Our MVR has a variety of optional attachments. In addition, MVR is equipped with functions useful for automation such as Auto attachment changer, Auto indexing, and tool length measurement, and smoothing functions useful for improving the quality of Dies & molds. We use these functions effectively for efficient production.
I also feel that the machine accuracy is “perfect”. The fact that all three machines are able to maintain accuracy is due to the effect of annual inspection / preventive maintenance supported by MHI India. We could get finish machining target quality in our shop floor where the temperature is not controlled and exposed to environment.
In the future, Our Company is expected to become very active in the field of automobile parts. We plan to use MVR to process larger sizes of Dies & molds.
