Products Exhibited and the star product
In IMTEX, Proteck has showcased two of its innovative machines. These machines include Reishauer Gear Grinding machine model RZ 310 and Induction Heating equipment from Denki Kogyo, Japan. The Induction hardening machines are used for hardening components such as gears, shafts etc. The essence of Induction hardening is to control, precisely, the depth of hardening. Hence the designing of the heating coil and control of the Induction pulse becomes very critical. In Denki Kogyo, they have mastered the technology of developing high-performance Induction heating coils whereby the hardening depth can be controlled very precisely.
Moreover, these machines are very compact when compared to similar machines of other manufacturers.
Denki Kogyo is a new entrant in the Indian market and Proteck is confident of exploiting the potential of the growing market in India.
The star attraction for the visitors in IMTEX of Proteck Machinery was Reishauer gear grinder. This needs no introduction as Reishauer is very well known in the Indian market especially for the gear manufacturers. These gear grinding machines have special software to control the rubbing of the flanks, create a crown and reduce the gear noise. This machine is very flexible, user-friendly and very productive.
Proteck sells about 4 to 5 machines every year with a turnover of 40 crores.
