A year after landing in India, Airtificial Engineering signed its first contract in this country. As company sources explained, the agreement includes preparing manufacturing lines for rear suspension shock absorbers for various vehicle models for a first-level Indian factory, whose name was not provided for confidentiality reasons. It turns out that the end customers for this product will be Maruti Suzuki and Honda automobile companies.
Designing the rack was an engineering challenge due to various high-tech elements that optimized the client’s previous industrial manufacturing processes. In fact, according to the same sources, the project includes a fully automated manufacturing line that significantly reduces manufacturing costs. Likewise, it improves the production capacity of shock absorbers, reducing process engineering time and reaching a daily production of approximately 5,550 units. Thanks to the various technological qualities of the Linear model, it has the ability to mount up to eight different models or versions of shock absorbers.
At the same time, the new linear line has high-tech industrial processes that require extremely precise assembly. Regarding the technological elements of the project, the three automated stations that automatically integrate each of the components that make up the final product stand out. Thanks to this, the line does not need operators to work manually in the integration process or in transfer to the manufacturing testing machine. It is only necessary for one operator to feed the line and remove the finish.
Airtificial’s CEO, Guillermo Fernández de Peñaranda, appreciates the completion of this contract as “an engineering and technological challenge that, given the customer’s needs, has strengthened the company’s operations.” Smart robots In a market that has significant competitive advantages and is very interesting for business. India, in particular, and Asia, in general, represent an industry opportunity through which Airtificial, as a transversal group, can provide a value-added proposition. Fernández de Peñaranda highlights how, through this project, the company continues its strategy of business internationalization, with a particular focus on strategic markets on the Asian continent.
The engineering design was developed in the department’s factories Smart robots of the company in Barcelona, while the technology integration was carried out by employees of the business unit in Pune, one of Axes The largest automobile companies in India, whose auto components industry produces $10.9 billion annually and employs 1.5 million people.
Moreover, this sector is growing at an annual rate of 9.5% and its total average production reaches about 30 million vehicles. The government’s forecasts indicate that India is one of the leading countries in producing automobile exports in the world, with export growth expected to rise from 22% currently to 20% to 40% in the next five years.
