Technology for Metal Transfer: A Synopsis of Precision Technometal Industries (Private) Limited

Article excerpt

In order to successfully solve the diverse needs of the Original Equipment Manufactures and the replacement market the need of metallurgical knowledge on part of the manufacturer becomes imperative, especially if high quality and stringent tolerance components are to be manufactured. With the increasing number of metals and their alloys used in the automotive and allied engineering fields today, and the conditions under which they are applied a thorough and comprehensive knowledge of metal transfer on part of the manufacturer is essential. Heir to over 38 years of die-forging experience in the manufacturing of engineering based components, Precision Technometal Industries still continues to honour its commitment for providing international specific standard parts. Recognized for its quality products and characterized by superb workmanship, immaculate finish, and consistent quality, Precision Technometal Industries is held in high esteem among the Original Equipment Manufacturers, PACO Units, Government and Semi Governmental Corporations. Commendable merits have been received from foreign firms operating in Pakistan, for the manufacturing and fabrication of parts for off-shore oil rig platforms.

The die forging industry has often been accused of being behind times. Suggestions have been made that it has lost ground to competitive process. Precision Technometal Industries is aware of this challenge. If the services of the Company are used to the fullest, many components at present being produced by other methods of metal forming can be manufactured more economically by the die-forging process. It is important to stress that unlike cast parts or fabricated products, forged components have an inherent structural integrity.

Over the past couple of decades the drop forger has been driven to extent his art to meet the demands of the customer forever high quality levels of "closer-to-form" products. Shapes, sizes and metallurgical integrity of steel drop forgings have improved enormously. With the continual advancement in technological processes, Precision Technometal Industries has upgraded its production systems in conjunction with the progress that takes form in the forging industry internationally. Unability to do so or the passive attitude often perceived by most local manufacturers of die-forged components, ultimately leads to either low quality high priced products or non-specific items unable to successfully meet the end-user's stipulated conditions.

For several years forgings are being produced keeping in view the low-weight forging development techniques. Low weight forgings in this context are not necessarily forgings of small size or forgings that have been designed solely to meet weight limitations of final assemblies; instead, low weight forgings within the meaning herein, pertains to forgings that have been designed and produced so as to reduce to a minimum scrap losses in the form of crop ends, flash trimmings and machining chips. Customers are thereby assured of savings in material and tooling; a comparative edge provided to all Precision Technometal Industrie's clientele.

Theoretical approach and professional management is coupled together to insure OEM specific components. The understanding, knowledge, and experience in metallurgical and forging applications has placed Precision Technometal Industries and its products in an honourable and respectful category among the engineering industries in Pakistan. The name of Precision Technometal Industries has become synonymous within the industry to express components of consistently unmatched quality, timely deliveries and uncompromising metallurgical properties.

The 38 years in metal transfer just by itself, does not impress the management of the Company particularly. The Company is concerned with the here, the now and the future. Precision Technometal Industries presents itself as a fully committed action Company, dedicated to die forging and ready to achieve greater localization of components. …
