Coexisting with Robots

The picture is still a little hazy when it comes to adopting robots on shop floors. Would they really be a great assistance to humans or eventually replace them? Here’s the value addition robotics can bring to the cutting tools industry and the pitfalls to watch out for…

The Road Less Traveled

Mechanical Engineering has long been a male dominated space. But over the years, a few pioneering women have refused to conform and forayed into the machine tool industry. Here they talk of coming out of their comfort zone, choosing a path treaded less by their likes, and making a difference as role models.

Facilitating Growth

Linked systems, each comprising three NLX 2500/700s from DMG MORI, have enabled Eisenwerk Erla to evolve from a modern jobbing foundry to a future-oriented full-liner.

Efficient Engineering with EPLAN

The transition from a traditional software to EPLAN has provided Grind Master Machines a greater advantage in terms of increased production rate, reduced cost structure and quick turnaround time.

Strategic Solutions and Competitive Advantages

It’s almost four decades that University Professors and Consultants have been studying Toyota and trying to comprehend how and what it does. With scores of books on lean management and an oversupply of seminars, trainings, master classes etc., most claim to know and even practise ‘lean’, falling short of replicating Toyota or Mysore Kirloskar. Here’s revisiting some fundamentals that can come handy in one’s lean journey…

Leveraging Technology

A compelling account of how the implementation of an innovative and unmanned robotic system helped Distinct Productivity Solutions, an SME, to earn customer delight.

Cognizant of Each Other’s Needs

After having remained as two separate entities confined to their own focus areas for long, the industry and the academia now acknowledge that their goals overlap, and, hence, have joined hands in their pursuit. Dassault Systèmes Foundation’s initiative at NK Orchid College of Engineering & Technology, Solapur, is an encouraging move in this direction.

Mapping the Role of Metal Forming in Automotive Industry

Although the metal forming sector makes for just 20 percent of the Indian machine tool industry, its significance cannot be undermined. The country’s booming automotive sector is to further boost its importance in the scheme of things.


Research and Development (R&D) is crucial for innovation in the manufacturing industry. Investment in technology for bringing out new products, processes and services builds the industry’s competitive advantages and enhances its future capabilities.

Exchanging to Grow

With Germany being India’s largest trading partner in Europe, the two countries have been consistently engaged in sharing each other’s strengths. Visible progress in this mutual give and take is optimistic and a definite sign for a lot to look forward to in the machine tool space.
