MR. G. D. Rajkumar, Director, Gedee Weiler Pvt Ltd
We Gedee Weiler, are an Indo German joint venture company having a technical partnership with two German companies for more than 5 decades engaged in the manufacture of precision conventional and CNC Lathes for Global Markets.
We have been exporting our Conventional and CNC machines to Germany and other parts of Europe thru Germany for more than 3 decades.
Our Proturn series machines for tool room and batch production applications has a Patented Bed Design
The CNC machines we export to Germany are equipped with servo automation by our partner and are supplied to the vendors of Auto giants in Germany such as VW and BMW for mass production of precision parts.
The fact that exports contribute to more than 55% of our turn over (out of which nearly 95% to Europe) and that we recently started exporting to ASEAN countries stand testimony to our global reach.
Our products find application in various industry like Auto Components, Aero Space, General Engineering and Tool Rooms. Especially our Lean Turn machines find extensive use in small, precision and mass production application while the Flex Turn models have the versatility to be provided with Linear Tooling/ Turret/ Live Tool Turret/ Dedicated Live tool spindles and Automation.
Our high precision conventional Lathes are ideally suited for Tool Rooms, Aero Space and other precision applications.
The market scenario is quite promising and we expect the growth to be healthy.
As the Indian economy is growing fast, huge investments being made in the infrastructure sector and with initiatives by the central government like Skill India, Make In India etc Indian Machine tool industry can expect to make quantum leap in growth
Indian Industry is unique that it demands for latest technology and high productivity but at a very competitive price as India is a price sensitive market. Machines that can deliver process integration, multi tasking in combination with high output and affordable Automation will be the need of the hour. Export of machines to some of the emerging markets will be another area for Indian Machine tool industry to focus for growth.
Indian companies have responded well to the challenge posed by globalization and entry of Multi national Auto and Machine tool builders into India by launching several new products as well by improving their existing products in terms speed, accuracy, flexibility and range.
Indian machines are now well accepted by many of the leading European, Japanese and Korean Auto and Auto component makers having plants in India which meet stringent quality and productivity demands as well complying with TPM, 5S and 6 Sigma requirements.
Indian machine tool builders are also upgrading to smart machines that can adopt to digital transformation.
The first and foremost value Indian machines can offer is the competitive price for a given application as against the global machine tool players.
Offering total solutions by providing tooling/ fixturing and application support, quick service and spares support backed up by wide network, ingenious automation solutions , flexibility to offer customized solutions based on standard machines and quick deliveries are the other key benefits Indian machines offer to customers.
Indian companies need to develop machines with higher spindle speeds and Rapid feed rates and multi tasking capabilities to compete in the global arena. Attention has to be focused as well on offering intelligent clamping and gripping and smart and cost effective automation so that these machines can get adopted in smart manufacturing factories.
As a Company focussed on small parts calling for high precision and mass production we have six lines of our product range namely
Our range of Capstan lathes namely MCL, MCT & MCS still are in good demand for mass production applications popularly known as 2nd operation machines. Our Lean Turn and Flex Turn machines are well suited for mass production of automobile and general engineering components. The recently upgraded Flexturn-Neo range of products are now available as ‘Automation Ready’ with auto doors in front and top, so that loader /robot can be integrated from front or top. Also, the machine can be used both with manual loading and auto loading.
Triax 300 (MT) is a unique product from our linear line as a unique combination of linear tooling with multi tasking- one of its kind in India- facilitating turning, drilling, milling in one setting.
Quattroturn 350 (TM) is a 4-Axis Vertical Lathe which can Turn, Mill and Drill at nearly half the time by simultaneous turning, drilling & tapping by two tools is again a one of its kind product offered only by us in India.
Value added services:
We have expanded our sales and service network by adding dealers as well direct service personnel across India which has greatly improved our response to our customer’s requests. We offer total solution to our customers to improve the productivity and quality for both new machines as well already supplied machines.
We have recently set up a resource center in Faridabad where we have installed one of our machines which is available for our customers for demonstrations, trials and training.
Over 5 decades we have established ourselves as a leader in precision small conventional and CNC Lathes in the global market. We will continue to remain focused on this segment by offering innovative solutions especially for mass production applications combined with multi-tasking and/ or automation by developing machines with modular units which can be offered as stand alone units which can be expanded by adding additional modules and/ or Automation at a later date to increase production volume.
We are establishing an in house tech center where all our latest products and state of the art work holding and tooling solutions will be available for any trials and demonstration. Our customers will have an opportunity to experience and feel the high productive, precision and automation solutions we can offer for their specific needs.
We are making substantial growth in both domestic and export business. We have embarked on an aggressive expansion plan in our capacities as well our sales and service network which will help us achieve our goal of more than doubling our sales in both export and domestic markets in the next 2-3 years.
We are honoured to say that we are one among the very few manufactures of manual lathes in the world who build machines conforming to DIN 8605 Standards, one of the most stringent amongst machine tool static accuracy standards.
Our passion for developing innovative solutions which deliver high productivity and quality at an affordable price has led us to our current positions of offering unique products in the Indian Machine Tool Industry.
Our unique 3-Axis linear tooling multi-tasking machine and 4-Axis twin turret machines with live tool capabilities stand testimony to our above philosophy.
We will continue to develop such innovative solutions combining multi –tasking and automation, modular machines which can be offered as stand alone machines that could be expanded by adding additional modules and/or automation in future which will help customers to keep their investments low in the beginning but at the same time would give flexibility to expand quickly to meet their changing needs.
