State-of-the-art facilities. Harbouring world-class capacities and capabilities.
Over the years, Bharat Forge continues to invest in state-of-the-art facilities harbouring world-class capacities and capabilities. Our facilities include fully automated forging and machining lines, the largest of its kind and among the best in the industry.
They are complimented with a strong technology infrastructure based on IT platforms, on which the company has built an edifice of unmatched design, engineering and innovation capabilities. Today, Bharat Forge holds the capability to meet the global demands of its customers with seamless engineering and design support.
New product development has been a foundation of our growth over the last decade. This strategy has been instrumental in entering new segments and sectors. Our core philosophy has been to focus on innovation - the Company's strong R&D team helps expedite the process of product development thus enhancing speed to market of differentiated value added products that are 'first time right'.
Bharat Forge offers end-to-end solutions to its global customers, based on its
extensive technology, product design and product development expertise.
The engineering centre processes are well-designed to adopt best practices and technology, and to continuously improve upon them to meet the growing challenges.
The design & engineering facility comprises of:
State-of-the-art CAD / CAM / CAE infrastructure for 3D modelling, NC tool path generation and FEA analysis to accelerate response time in developing new parts.
Metal flow simulation software "DEFORM" & "FORGE" for virtual manufacturing and a specialized preform design software "Vera Cad" for design optimization and process validation to develop new parts right the first time.
High-end CAM software, like "WORKNC", "UG-NX" for generating NC tool paths for high-speed die cutting and "NC SPEED" for tool path optimization to reduce turnaround time in die manufacturing.
Bharat Forge offers innovative Value Analysis & Value Engineering (VAVE) proposals without affecting quality & durability of product through strong R&D capability.
Value analysis and value engineering (VAVE):
Bharat Forge executes Value analysis and Value Engineering (VAVE) projects based on customer needs as well as self-initiation using state-of-the-art technologies (EDICAD- CAE-Simulation-CAM-CIM-CAV-Testing) under one umbrella. VAVE projects have resulted in components with higher strength to weight ratio which is validated for different acceptance criterion using in-house developed balancing software, Finite Element Analysis Methodology and Physical testing.
Greater emphasis of system approach towards light weighting of automotive components through optimizing design, characterization of material properties, wider variety of manufacturing process & use of CAE techniques. This has resulted into lighter, fuel efficient & greener vehicles thus helping us reduce carbon footprints.
