Mr. Kadapa further emphasized on catching up with the fast changing market dynamics and bringing in more and more technologically advanced innovative products and importance of digitization in enhancing the overall efficiency and productivity of the system for the off-highway industry. With all OEMs working diligently towards designing and manufacturing vehicles compliant with the latest emission norms, the use of electronically-controlled engines and transmissions is the need of the market. AVTEC also leveraged this platform to showcase its home-grown electronic controls, Hauling Automatic Transmission System (HATS) which not only provides flawless communication between engine and other system but also provides data controlled mechanism, enhanced system efficiency and reliability.

Mr. Kadapa informed, “Now, with increased use of electronic engines, we are working on projects for greater integration of the transmission solutions with the engines, and higher optimization of the equipment.”

He further added, “There is a requirement for higher productivity, backed by higher speed for all range of off highway mobile equipment, more precisely for transit mixers, cranes and loaders. OEMs are looking for higher power to weight ratio for their equipment. AVTEC’s in-house capabilities in designing, product development and engineering, product application and optimization, with best cost manufacturing processes, product testing and validation, enable it to meet market demand most effectively. Our manufacturing capabilities include superior gear manufacturing, heat treatment, control valve and clutch pack testing, NVH testing systems and dynamo meters. With our manufacturing competency we are producing lighter and stronger materials for delivering longer lifecycles.”
