The Company continues to run Automatic Plating Plant in order to improve the efficiency and quality of its products that results in optimum utilization of resources causing preservation and conservation of electricity, fuels and such energy resources.
Also the effective maintenance of furnace to avoid heat loss, utilization of full capacity of furnaces by proper co-ordination of load and improvement of power factor by the Company results in preserving the energy resources.
The Company continues to carry on rain water harvesting activity in and around its plant site. On environmental protection front, the Company has also installed solar capacity of 62.1 kw and its Power generation – 310 units / day, 93150 units / year.
Installation of SOLAR system on the roof of unit II (Block A & B) is completed in 19-20 where in 1308 KW / Year electricity is generated and used.
Apart from above the company went through Thermography& Leakage Detections testing on monthly basis and Safety Audits on yearly basis .Further the company has installed Variable Frequency Drives on many machines which will give further energy saving.
Your Directors believe in the growth of the Company hand in hand with the growth of its employees and hence assures its enhanced efforts towards employee welfare.
The Company continues to run Automatic Phosphating Plant in order to improve the efficiency and quality of its products that results in optimum utilization of resources causing preservation and conservation of electricity, fuels and such energy resources.
The Company continues to use the imported bolt forging machinery to improve on the technology front. Further the Board assures to update and use latest technology available in industry keeping in mind indigenous conditions. The Company takes persistent efforts to provide end products with the use of state of the art technology.
Company has embarked on a drive to replace, in a phased manner, the old machines and to bring in new machines with latest technology. These machines will not only boost the productivity but also conserve energy.
Specific areas in which R&D carried out by the Company.
Stopper Bolt Spherical Head
Socket Head Ball Seat Injector Bolt
Tool Design Improvements
Benefits derived as result of the above R&D.
Center Bolt: This unique and precise bolt has a ball shaped bearing face. The semi hemisphere was being machined on a CNC machine and would take time and result in wastage of material in terms of the swarf generated. The idea during R & D activity was to avoid CNC machining and achieve the hemispherical shape in cold forging. The tooling was designed, and R & D efforts resulted in finalization of the heading die which could give us a perfect shape of the hemisphere and at the same time hold the tolerance. The cold heading of the sphere saved machining time and saved the material. The cost reduction was achieved. The component is fully developed, and the project handed over to production for regular manufacturing.
Stopper Bolt with Spherical head: This special product has a spherical shape over the normal hexagonal head of the bolt. The Spherical shape was earlier machined on a lathe. This would take a lot of time and the productivity was low besides generating scrap in terms of turning chips. We did trials in R & D to generate the spherical shape in forging. We succeeded in designing the punches which would extrude the hexagonal shape as well as forge the sphere. The result was improved productivity, no scrap in the forms of chips thus cost saving. The project has been handed over to production for regular manufacturing.
Socket Head Ball Seat Injector Bolt: This complicated shaped product not only has a hex socket but also has a ball seat beneath it. The R & D challenge was to achieve the shape of the ball seat and the hex socket in Cold Heading operations. Various tool designs were tried by R & D and after many trials succeeded in balancing the material and grain flow to achieve the designed geometry, while retaining the metallurgical properties. The project was a success and has been handed over to production for regular manufacturing.
Tool design Improvement:
Surface finish improvement: – Some tools used in cold forging and thread rolling where surfaces of the tools are constantly in contact and components slide over the face of the tools. This operation would result in leaving some marks on the components. These marks sometimes would be very prominent and would not be accepted by our quality assurance. In order to overcome this problem, we did a lot of R & D and found out that if the flat surfaces are super finished using diamond grinding and diamond polishing surface grinding wheel we could achieve the defect free products. This called for a highly accurate high-speed surface grinding machine which would not only give us flatness accuracy of 0.005mm but would also be capable of taking the Diamond Grinding and Diamond Polishing wheel. The surface grinding machine was imported, and we carried out the trials in our R & D shop. The results were very encouraging. We have implemented the process in the tool room where highly polished tools are now manufactured and are now getting defect free products. Cost saving is done in terms of elimination of rejections.
Company Logo and Grade Marking on the head of fasteners: The Heading inserts used to transfer the company logo and grade on to the products during forging. The lettering on the heading inserts were done manually using masters. Since this was a manual operation and the masters would get worn out, the marking on the head of the product would be irregular and sometimes blur and shabby. We did some R & D and instead of punching the letters on the heading inserts we tried engraving the letters on the heading inserts before heat treating them. The results were encouraging, and we decided to import a CNC engraving machine which could be programmed to engrave lettering on the heading inserts. We also designed a Tungsten Carbide toolto do the engraving. The results today are that the lettering on the head of fasteners is very well defined and aesthetically also looks good. The process and technology have been passed on to our tool room who are in the process of implementation. This has not only improved the manufacturing technique but has also given cost saving in terms of improved productivity of tool manufacturing.

Future Plan of Action
Following are in the project stage and R & D is continuing
Combined Rolling of Threads and serrations: At present the serrated wheel bolts are rolled twice, once for serrations and the second time for thread rolling. Development of special thread rolls is in progress where the assembly of two rolls can enable us to roll serrations as well as threads in single rolling pass. This combined rolling when implemented will eliminate one rolling pass thereby reducing the total rolling time by half and increase the productivity. The cost reduction thus achieved can be passed on to the customer.
Achieving Grinding Tolerance in Cold Forging: For products like Hex head Axle Bolts shank is being centerless ground at present. This process is not only slow but is expensive as well. A project is underway to modify the forging tool to cold forge the product in such a manner that the tolerance on shank could be achieved in cold forging instead of grinding. The process when implemented will not only eliminate the cost incurred in grinding but will also improve productivity resulting in cost reduction.
Hex forming instead of Hex trimming for bigger sizes of M14 & M16: So far, we have developed cold forging process to form the hex head by extrusion and forming rather than trimming, for smaller sizes. Now we are developing the process for bigger sizes which are more difficult to extrude and form. When the project is completed and implemented in regular manufacturing we shall get a substantial saving of about 12 % in the raw material volume. This will give us a cost reduction and customer will be benefited.
