A large Indian automotive supplier supplying products such as axles, driveshafts and drivetrain as well as some genuine service parts of automotive. This company also ventured with some other automotive company to provide complete system solutions to OEMs. The company has its own global testing and advanced engineering facilities and they ensure that its products are modified and developed time to time to provide the best end-user experience.
This leading Indian automotive supplier company based in India faced recurring breakage in its spline rolling machines which impacted the overall production efficiency as well as unreliable product quality. Hence the company felt the need for an IIoT solution that could provide predictive maintenance.
The spline rolling machine is a critical machine as its process requires live centers with extreme accuracy and rigidity, as well as concentricity and coaxiality.
The IDE predicted the wear out in advance, notified the manufacturer for tool replacement, saved the unplanned downtime, and improved the product quality and reliability.
