Introduction

We have worked with many industrial clients like Hero Honda, Honda Motors, Ashok Leyland, Maruti Suzuki, New Holland Tractors, Royal Enfield, Mahindra & Mahindra, Tata Motors, Forbes Gokak, MICO, Bosch,
Tata B P Solar, The Aluminium Industries (ALIND) and Prok Devices for various industrial engineering activities, automation and product development.

We also offer design and prototyping of a wide range of IEDs (numerical protection relay) for the Distribution system. These IEDs are DSP based and are communicable/non communicable.

  • Over current and Earth Fault relay
  • Over / Under voltage relay
  • Over / Under frequency relay
  • Motor Protection relay
  • Customized multi function protection relay as per the needs of the client

Power Quality is a measure of how well a system supports reliable operation of its loads. A power disturbance or event can involve voltage, current, or frequency. Power disturbances can originate in consumer power systems, consumer loads, or the utility. Power disturbances are defined in terms of magnitude and duration. Disturbances range from transients that last for microseconds to outages that continue for hours. When a power disturbance falls outside operating limits, equipment may be disrupted or damaged.

The Costs of Poor Power Quality Can be Significant. Each time production is interrupted, your business loses profit on product that is not manufactured and sold. Interruptions can damage a partially complete product, causing the material to be re-run or scrapped.Electric utilities may charge penalties on poor power factor or high peak demands. PRDC® offers an extensive range of power quality test tools for troubleshooting, preventive maintenance, and long-term recording and analysis in industrial applications and utilities.

Advanced power quality recorders for capturing comprehensive details of power disturbances, trend analysis and Class-A 'quality-of-service' compliance testing over a user-defined period of time.

We have worked with many industrial clients like Hero Honda, Honda Motors, Forbes Gokak, MICO, Ashok Leyland, TATA BP Solar, Maruthi, New Holland Tractors and Royal Enfield, Mahindra & Mahindra, Honda, Suzuki, Bosch, TATA Motors, Alind and Prok Devices for various industrial engineering activities and product development. Some of the solutions provided by us to the industries are as listed below.

This Telesis controller and PLC interfaced software helps in the automation of vehicle manufacturing industry. This is customized software being used by various auto mobile industries across the country. We provide an easy to use system based Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the operators to punch the engine and chassis number and other information on, ID plate during the production stage.

Some of our esteemed clients are :

  • Maruti Udyog Ltd ,Gurgaon
  • Hero Honda Motors ltd., Haryana
  • Mahindra and Mahindra, Mumbai
  • Tata Motors, Jamshedpur /Lucknow
  • Ashok Leyland ltd
  • Caterpillar Ltd
  • Royal Enfield Ltd
  • Honda Motors Ltd
  • New Holland Tractors Ltd

This hand held device takes the input from the operator directly. It negates the dependability of the operator towards the PC. The operator hence has the freedom to move around various models across the manufacturing unit and punch the number on the engine or id plate etc.

This automated screwdriver system was developed for M/s BOSCH (formerly MICO BOSCH). This system uses controlled pressure to ensure proper torque of screws, nuts and bolts. The unit also keeps count of number of units tightened. In case there is a mismatch in the set number and actual number, the system gives an audio-visual alarm to indicate the error.

The manually operated element packing and DV packing units of MICO had packaging defects like wrong element in the wrong capsule or capsule without the element etc. MICO wanted to eliminate those defects by automating the process of element packing and DV line packing. Packing GUI does the automation of the packaging process, which assists the operator to rectify mistakes like wrong element in the wrong capsule, bottling the capsule without the element, wrong element in the batch of elements etc. Sensors and barcode readers are mechanically arranged to check for the above mentioned defects. Packing GUI does the automation process by controlling (printer & printer/applicator) & mechanical conveyor working on PLC logic. The errors occurring in the process & the current working status are displayed on the display board interfaced to the system.

ANDON display system is used to keep track of the machines performance, working. Breakdown can quickly be notified and to the line in charge and in turn can be informed to the maintenance people to attend the problem earliest. The line planner sets the production of a component per hour and per shift data in the database available in the Remote PC. Planner also configures the shift production target of the component and the type of component being produced in the shift. The operator can also schedule the same for any number of days using the schedule software provided with the display board. Once the data is configured in the PC the same i.e. production information and type of component being produced is transmitted to the display board. Also the next rollout components are also displayed based on the planner input.
