Anti-vibration products and solutions would be used to cater the growing requirements of off-highway, railway transportation, energy and telecommunications industry. Speaking to NBM&CW on the sidelines of the event, Mr. Rajeev Gupta said that off-highway sector in India catering to construction and mining applications would be one of their key market areas to promote their solutions. Buoyant demand was expected from the sector with growth in infrastructure. He informed that Trelleborg currently makes available anti-vibration solutions to off-highway equipment comprising excavators, compactors, backhoe loaders, haulers and motor graders. The anti-vibration solution comprises front and rear engine mounts, control links, chassis bumper pads, conical bearing reaction rods, mds mounts, anti-circulation mounts, engine and radiator mounts among others. The products are made available directly to the OEM’s by Trelleborg. The company does not have any plan to promote its products for the aftermarket.

Asked on the company’s plans to diversify across other verticals of off-highway equipment, Mr. Gupta explained that, they were contriving to tap the areas offering volumes business. Responding to a query that how does the company see the crushing and screening sector for its anti-vibration solutions, and how would the company be looking to make different solutions for the premium and non-premium crushers available in the market? Mr. Gupta answered, the crushing and screening sector was indeed a potential market for them where they had solutions to address the requirements for the same.

He replied that in order to minimize the same, they render onsite support to monitor wear and tear analysis of their vibration systems and suggest remedial measures to arrest the same.
