Over the past two decades, India has developed a strong expertise in precision machining of parts
from bar stock, castings, forgings, plastics and composites, providing world-class services and
products to industries across the globe. With the increasing demand for highly precise components,
India has invested in the latest technology and skilled manpower to meet the needs of its clients.
India has a large number of high precision machining manufacturers that are capable of producing
components with high accuracy and consistency. CNC machines are equipped with specialized
software that allows for precise control of the machining process. Machining technologies in India
have developed in all areas from precision CNC turning to Multi-Axis machining, Horizontal Machining
centres, Vertical Turret Lathes, Gear hobbing, and Gear Grinding.
While Indian-made CNC machine brands like ACE, Jyoti, LMW & BFW offer world-class machines and
have tens of thousands of installations, global CNC machine brands like Makino, Haas, Tsugami,
DMG, Mori Seiki, Mazaak, etc. also have a large number of installations and are deployed for critical CNC
machined parts for a variety of applications like Aerospace, Defence, Automotive, Mining, Railways
and other industrial sections.
Critical Measuring instruments like CMM, VMM, Faro Arm, Roundness testers, roughness testers etc.
from global brands like Mitutoyo, Zeiss, are becoming a common sight in small mid and large CNC
machine shops in India.
In India, machining parts to tight tolerances of 0.0001”/3 microns, critical GD&T parameters and high
surface finishes are not a challenge anymore for Indian machinists. With the help of cutting-edge
machinery and experienced engineers, India offers manufacturers the capability to deliver
unparalleled precision, accuracy and repeatability in their products.
Benefits and Importance of Precision Machining
Precision machining is a highly sought-after process in global manufacturing for a variety of reasons.
Here are the top seven advantages and importance of precision machining.
- High level of precision
Even the smallest deviation from tolerance can make all the difference and therefore adhering to
the specification of tolerances, whether is it for dimensions, surface finish or any critical parameters
is very important for any engineering application.
- Quality that is consistent with process capability.
Consistent quality is very important and that is achieved only by the process capability. Cp / Cpk
analysis helps measure to ensure sustainable process capability.
- Efficient use of materials and alternative methods of
With the cost of raw materials rising always, it is important to use efficient technologies to produce parts
like forging, castings, metal injection molding and also converting traditional designs to different
methods to save material and labor. For e.g. conversion from fabrication to castings, coverting bar
stock machining to forging, etc. using lost wax and lost foam casting to reduce or eliminate machining,
can result in cost savings up to 60%.
Precision machining has advanced significantly in India since the start of the industrial revolution,
and it will continue to do so when new technological breakthroughs happen in the manufacturing place.
India is currently at par with any advancement in technology and is it par with global levels.
