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 the Vedavakkam Facility (Plant 3), but 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.
System Insights’ Customer Value Framework approach to client engagements, called the VIMANA Cycle, ensures that VIMANA delivers concrete economic benefits to clients within weeks of deployment. Client case studies, such as IM Gears Pvt. Ltd. demonstrate how this highly differentiated manufacturing technology works.
System Insights will exhibit at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at Booth:
