  1. 1. Redesign & Technology Infusion in “Engineering File” Manufacturing Process.
  2. 2. About Us. JK Files (India) Limited, a subsidiary of Raymond Ltd is today the largest producer of files in the world. It has an impressive 32% global market share. With expertise of over 60 years in the business, JK Files (India) Limited has established over 1300 Distributors and dealers networks across globe. We export 50% of our products to over 100 countries including the technologically sophisticated markets of U.S., Canada and Europe. The plants located in India are Ratnagiri and Chiplun (all in Maharashtra), Pithampur (in Madhya Pradesh), Kolkata, Vapi (Gujarat) and Surabaya in Indonesia are all ISO 9001: 2008 certified. 2 Confidential
  3. 3. Context & Background.  At JK Files, we aim at becoming the Largest and the Best manufacturer of Files in the world. And to achieve this we need to Build - World Class plants & best manufacturing practices to retain the Competitive edge & sustainable growth. To Build De-skilled & Robust Processes with High Capability & Reliability. Offer wider range of products with consistent Quality and on time Availability.  This can only be achieved by dedicatedly working on each fronts of the existing process & eliminating the wastes by using breakthrough technologies.  So we have targeted a massive redesign of our operations & the machineries. Since we are the leaders in manufacturing the files in the world, the technology is not easily available outside & we need to focus on each and every minute integrity of the process & design it such away that 3 Confidential we are miles away from our competitors.
  4. 4. Drivers of the Project OPERATIONS RE-DESIGN • VALUE STREAM BASED LAYOUTS. • TO REDUCE THROUGHPUT TIME & WORKING CAPITAL TECHNOLOGY INFUSION • INTRODUCE NEW TECHNOLOGY • FOR BETTER PRODUCTIVITY, QUALITY CONSISTENCY , BETTER ENVIRONMENT & SAFETY PROCESS RE-ENGINEERING • ALTERNATE PROCESS /ELIMINATION/COMBINATION OF PROCESS. • TO REDUCE WASTAGE & CONVERSION COSTS 4 Confidential

  11. 11. Steel Hot Rolling Mill (HRM) Upgradation. Objectives: • Steel Hot Rolling mill being the starting point of our internal supply chain, consistency in steel (output and quality) obtained from hot rolling determines the operational efficiency in file manufacturing . • In our previous process of hot rolling, we were losing substantial quantity of steel as scrap. • The capacity of our HRM is 600 MT per month. • So as to minimize the wastages we have adopted the latest techologies like Induction heating in Neutral atmosphere, Peeling etc. Results/Benefits Achieved: • An Annual Saving in Raw material of 384 MT (Rs. 173 Lac) is being achieved by minimizing the process scrap by Infusion of New Technology in the Manufacturing. The micro details of savings in discussed in the following slides. 11 Confidential

Benefits BILLET CUTTING –CIRCULAR SAW     Consistency in the size of billets for input to Induction heating Consistency in the length of rolled sections Faster throughput Perpendicular cutting of billets reducing material loss INDUCTION BILLET HEATING      Consistency of Heating temperature resulting in Dimensional consistency No over-heating of billets. Uniform temperature at the surface and the core Reduction in the De-carb levels Reduction in Scale and Burning losses Automatic Accept-Reject mechanism 14 Confidential
  15. 15. Technology Infusion – Yield Improvement by Hot Point Rolling for Taper files. 15 Confidential
  16. 16. Hot Point Rolling for Taper Files Objectives:  For Triangular files we need to have 1/3rd of its length in a taper form. Taper length W Body length  Previously this was achieved by Grinding process.  Avg. 237 MT of material is lost in Grinding during point preparation process. (which is not recoverable)  Poor Dimensional consistency of files.  Low productivity. Results/Benefits Achieved: • An Annual Saving of Raw material by 237 MT is being achieved by elimination of the Grinding process. The micro details of savings in discussed in the following slides. 16 Confidential

  20. 20. New Generation Files Grinding Machine Objectives: • Grinding being the operation for Surface preparation for Teeth Cutting, which requires good surface finish & accuracy to control the quality of cut being produced. • In the present Grinding machine the material removal rate cannot be controlled in Microns, it is only designed for heavy material removal. • Today we are using a Magnesite bonded grinding wheel which is going obsolete day by day. To upgrade the present technology we need to switch over to vitrified bonded grinding wheel. Results/Benefits Achieved: • An Annual Saving of Rs. 32 Lac is achieved with the new design of the machine & use of Vitried bond grinding wheel. The micro details of savings in discussed in the following slides. 20 Confidential
  21. 21. Conventional Grinding Machine. New Generation Grinding Machine. Drawback in Current Benefits:  Process: 3 times Productivity. High Energy Consumption. Power requirement reduced by 50 % Low Productivity & Machine  Use of Low Power High Utilization. Electrical Motor. Efficiency Low Safety. Use of Vitrified Bond Grinding Wheel. Constrain in Grinding wheel  Multi Station Grinding with avalibility. PLC control Feed to improve the productivity. No precise control.  Deskilled Process with Auto Dressing & Compensation.  Higher Productivity with Auto Indexing. 21 Confidential

  23. 23. Technology Infusion – New Generation Teeth Cutting Machine. 23 Confidential
  24. 24. New Generation File Teeth Cutting Transfer Line. Objectives: • We were using conventional individual cutting machine for cutting operation on different sides of the file, after each operation the files are manually transferred to the next operation resulting in higher foot print & WIP. Following were the major concerns in the earlier process : • Low Productivity & Low Machine Utilization. • Skill is required to set the machine properly. • Age old design. • High consumption of lubricating oil & spare parts. Results/Benefits Achieved: • Productivity improvement by 6 times leading to an annual Saving of Rs. 39 Lac with the new design of the machine. The micro details of savings in discussed in the following slides. 24 Confidential
  25. 25. Conventional NewTeeth Cutting File Teeth Cutting . Prototype of File Concept for Machine. Drawbacks in Current Process:   Monotonous work cycle.  High Skill Requirement for Quality output.  Complicated Setting parameters.  25 Low Productivity. High Maintenance required. Confidential

  29. 29. Robotic Hardening. Objectives: • Previously we were using conventional MANUAL hardening process of the files, where each & every file is hardened manually one by which requires a lot of skill for achieving the hardness & straightness of the files. Due to this below were major concerns in the manual process: • Low Productivity & Low furnace Utilization. • Hazardous work Environment. (continuous exposure to temp. of appx. 600 to 700° C) • Poor Quality consistency. • Monotonous work cycle. Results/Benefits Achieved: • Productivity improvement by 5 times. • An Annual Saving of Rs. 125 Lac is being achieved with the introduction of Robots in Hardening. 29 Confidential
