Designing and Development:
A team of experienced engineer and design draftsman under the guidance of Mr. P.R.Kulkarni supports all the activities of design, new applications and related developments, component developments for quality up gradation and cost reduction and support to manufacturing engineering. Solidedge software is used for design and simulation work. Any new application is dealt with within maximum three days after receipt of an enquiry.
A team of 35 shop floor mechanics headed by a well experienced engineer and supporting staff for purchase and vendor development handles all the production and dispatch activities. The team is guided by Mr. Bipin Jadhav himself. The well trained man power is supported by all the in house facilities for critical components and processes. Balaji believes in having close quality and cost control over the critical parts and processes, contrary to the present trend of outsourcing. It has certainly benefited the customers by excellent quality and an affordable price and timely deliveries.
To meet the ever changing demand of the market, Balaji has a separate manufacturing engineering department, looking after new processes, tooling, up gradation of exiting processes to improve upon the quality and reduce manufacturing costs. The same is headed by well experienced technician under the guidance of Mr. Bipin Jadhav and Mr. P.R.Kulkarni.
Balaji in principle believes in quality assurance than quality control or checking. All the processes are well set and controlled after proper validation. Periodic print checking of all the parts as per plan is done to monitor the condition of moulds, dies and other tooling. An equipped lab consisting of following test and endurance testing rigs is well placed.
Gas Springs are filled with high pressure nitrogen. It is like an automotive tyre filled with air. One need air to be filled in the tyre after certain running. It means there is some leakage of air over a certain period. The same is true for gas springs. In spite of strict quality control, some seepage of nitrogen gas is permitted. A force drop of 10% after 100,000 cycles or three years of operation is permissible.
A strong marketing team is headed by a well experienced professional. It is well supported by technical and application engineering department. Balaji always strive for the customer satisfaction. The marketing team is well placed to cater any requirement globally.
The present capacity is 40000 gas springs per month of various types. Balaji is poised for a expansion within next six months to increase the capacity to 100,000 gas springs per month.
