India is considered one of the most important manufacturing and auto-parts destinations for automotive industry. Car manufacturers are constantly trying to localise manufacturing to achieve competitive costs in order to capture majority share in what is poised to be one of the fastest growing global automotive markets.
In order to keep introducing superior models with high performance, value-add features within competitive price ranges, car manufacturers need to look at optimising their manufacturing processes and resources. Automating this process has tremendous benefits from improving process times to cost savings. The challenge now is to employ and upgrade manufacturing technologies that allow flexibility and can accommodate product variations and reduce manufacturing or turnaround costs.
Catering to this high-technology, innovation and flexibility needs of this sector, the Automotive Engineering Show is set to create a focused platform in Chennai where over 100 technology companies will present latest automotive manufacturing techniques and solutions. This important industry event, dedicated to engineering and design processes of automotive industries will also target planning, shop floor and quality control technologies, bringing together exhibitors from the product groups of automation systems, factory control and sensors, assembly line system integrators, wielding, material handling systems, paintshop integrators etc.
Covering topics and technologies most relevant to meet the cost challenges faced by manufacturers in today’s market conditions, the event is scheduled to take place from 7 – 9 July, 2015 at Chennai Trade Centre, Nandambakkam, Chennai.
The solutions on display will not just provide economically viable alternatives to traditional techniques, but also revolutionise auto manufacturing facilities of the future. For instance, Mipalloy, one of the exhibitors at AES Chennai has developed a revolutionary cap tip which enhances production & cut costs. This new range of cap tips called Gold Spot will be unveiled at the show. According to the company, when used with up to 20% lower current setting during spot welding, the Gold Spot cap tips gives up to double the life of the standard chromium zirconium copper caps.
Another exhibitor, IFM is set to unveil its O6 wetline that can diffuse reflection sensors, detect objects without contact and assure interference-immune background suppression, even in case of highly reflective backgrounds, vapour or smoke.
Mahr Metrology India will be demonstrating its new automatic measuring machine, MarForm MMQ 150 for the testing of form and location tolerances. This can help reduce the number of rejected parts, lower production costs and save time. FARO, on the other hand, will be showcasing its latest FARO® Edge ScanArm HD that can significantly reduce on-site measurement times, scan challenging materials, and sustainably enhance products and processes. Users can expect dramatically reduced training times with the device, as the new crosshair feature and existing LED rangefinder functionality facilitates real-time scanning feedback.
The capture and control of air pollution within the factory shop floor, specifically fumes, smoke and mist have assumed critical importance in the past few years. Covering a wide range of pollution control technologies, Powertech Pollution Controls Pvt Ltd will offer welding fume extractor, centrifugal coolant mist collector, fume killer, oil mist collector, soldering fume extractor and other anti-pollution solutions.
With technology-leading brands such as Omron Automation, Siemens, SICK India, Bettinelli Automation Components, Blue Star, Cybernetik Technologies etc. also on board, the platform will be ideal for OEMs, component manufacturers, machine builders, system Integrators, managers from planning, quality, design department, production, capital purchase and procurement, engineers from the assembly line and technology professionals to understand the dynamics of future automotive factories.
A comprehensive seminar focused on ‘Smart Automotive Factories’ on 8th July alongside the trade fair will bring together over 100 delegates comprising of top automotive OEM’s and components manufacturers. More than just a business forum, Automotive Engineering Show will facilitate exchange of insights, strategies and technological developments enabling the industry to meet the ever increasing cost and operational challenges.
Those looking at expanding their manufacturing capabilities can meet technology experts to get answers on selecting the right system for their plant processes according to individual plant needs and be sure to discover the technology developments in the industry, develop contacts and build a potential supplier base. The educational sessions and learning zone will perfectly complement the visitor’s needs. The trade fair will open doors to the industry on 7 July at Halls 2 & 3 of Chennai Trade Centre.
