Our team has attended training programs on Forming Technology in Belgium which were conducted by Nedschroef Machinery which is a leading supplier of multistation, cold and warm metal forming machines. We have extensive knowledge of tool designing for manufacturing complicated parts leveraging which we have developed three machined parts in Cold Forging which save 25 to 30 percent material cost and increase its strength by 40 percent and switched to imported multi stations with a variable speed of up to 150 pcs/min. Moreover, we have modernized our Heat Treatment Furnaces and Forging machines which have saved 17 percent of electricity costs annually.

What value do you provide that cannot be replicated by anyone else in the market? Why do customers give you, their business?
For the past three years, we are with almost zero PPM with our customers. Our strengths & expertise lie in material science & failure analysis. We are a pioneer in the manufacturing of socket heads, flange, shoulder, and Torx bolts. We have a manufacturing capacity of 22 million bolts per month. We are financially strong, and our liability with our banks is extremely low. With the latest high-speed cold forming and thread rolling machine, we have the capability of developing cold forged components and are experts in resolving any hydrogen
embrittlement problem. Furthermore, we have a record of achieving tightening torque of more than 35 percent of the standard; the achievement is due to our expertise in raw material selection and the control of heat treatment parameters.
