IM Gears Pvt. Ltd. is a privately held precision manufacturer based out of Chennai, India, manufacturing precision parts for the automotive, heavy industry, and aerospace manufacturing sectors for customers in India and around the world. IM Gears wanted to improve the overall capacity and utilization of production lines at their Vedavakkam Facility (Plant 3), but they faced several challenges:
Lack of understanding of actual production efﬁciency of critical equipment
Lack of data to identify the root cause of low production efﬁciency in equipment
Lack of visibility and data consistency
IM Gears selected VIMANA for production monitoring and improvement and has implemented VIMANA in more than 40 machine tools. With VIMANA, IM Gears was able to monitor production efﬁciency and machine utilization without requiring manual intervention or data collection. IM Gears was also able to detect and solve production disruptions using the real-time and historical data that was gathered using VIMANA. VIMANA has delivered a signiﬁcant improvement in the overall production efﬁciency and utilization of the plant.
