The Mahindra Research valley focuses on computer aided engineering and design. An in-house integrated approach incorporating all the details and specifics of benchmarking, aesthetics, style feasibility, concepts, packaging, design & development, virtual validation, prototyping and testing are carried out that effectively reduces manufacturing trials, experiments and evaluation time in new product development.
The Engines are assembled in a closed environment, in an Air-conditioned plant. The Sequential Engine Assembly works on an Automated Electrified Monorail conveyer system. The assembly line offers flexibility of different models with S.M.E.D concept and employs the Andon system (Visual indication on line).
The Engine assembly lines employs DC Tools for critical joints. It also works on No fault forward principle and verification in process ( Advanced cold testing & Quality Points)
All new products go through extensive field tests and also are tested on test beds/ labs by the consistent use of simulation technologies.
The Cathodic Electro Deposition (CED) paint shop allows an excellent corrosion resistance for the sheet metal parts. It also provides a proper coverage of CED inside box sections and a allows a Uniform Dry film thickness of CED.
The tractor assembly lines are universal model lines that accommodate all the different tractor families and variants on the same line. Quick setup change is accomplished through multiple point docking fixtures & chassis resting pegs. Quality Point systems are established for 'Process Quality assurance'. Modern material handling systems like manipulators, DC tools & dedicated trolleys are employed. Roller tests are carried out, prior to the tractors departing the assembly lines.
