Since industrial gears & bearing are vital components for the functioning of industrial equipment and products, the excellent progress of several other industries has resulted in a surge in the demand for industrial gears. Increasing automation in manufacturing units, Government’s ‘Make in India’ program, and rise in spending on railways and infrastructure is boosting demand for industrial gears & bearing. Similarly, increasing awareness towards energy conservation combined with growing industrial infrastructure is driving the growth of the electric motors industry. The “Gears & Bearings, Motors & Drives” section tracks the impact of electrification and rise in need for automation on the industry. Welding process as a part of a manufacturing supply chain can increase shareholder value by improving value drivers such as revenue growth, operating margin and asset efficiency of the end customer. The lead article in “Welding and Fabrication” section demonstrates advantages provided by welding management software to all stages of the welding process from manufacturing planning to final documentation of the deliverables. The section also features interview of Aniruddha Vilekar, CTO of Ador Welding Ltd. Power generation and transmission & distribution segments are two verticals in the power generation industry, with the latter having a larger market size out of the two. The “Power Equipment” section focused on emerging and upcoming technologies for power generation and distribution.
Industrial Products Finder (IPF), a pioneer industrial journal in India, was launched in 1972. It gives industrial manufacturers and exclusive dealers/importers of industrial products a forum to display their ware, in a medium that was to be made regularly available to the users of these products. IPF focuses on all industrial/engineering products and services, consultancies, repair and reconditioning services, industrial security and safety services, and of late, pollution control and environment protection services. Apart from products, there are also other regular features that complement the core activity – a capsule of important events and developments in the industrial sector, news on companies, projects, joint ventures and mergers, etc; a selection of articles written by experts in the field as well as academics; and information on all important trade fairs, conferences, seminars and training programmers.
