India with its growing infrastructure need and low equipment density, offers immense opportunities for innovative gear drive solutions that meet specific local requirements.

Enhanced government spending will drive CE’s growth


The year has panned out well and we have achieved record sales in CE sector. Our growth outpaced the market, making the feat more impressive. There have been visible signs of disruption on account of denomination and introduction of GST, but these have been transitory in nature. We believe the inherent demand in the CE sector on account of enhanced Government spending will continue to drive the growth of equipment.

We are carrying out many engineering improvisations in our product line to help OEMs improve efficiency and equipment uptime

Bonfiglioli Transmissions offers a complete range of Drivetrain equipment and solutions to various market segments like construction, agriculture and mining etc. Every market and each application needs specialized solutions. Bonfiglioli continuously works on providing innovative solutions to OEMs for enhancing the equipment performances. It is also working on futuristic solutions on Electro-mobility platform.

One such solution of wheel traction drives has been launched under the 600 Series Product Platform, which is specifically designed for backhoe loaders and other construction equipment. Each of the special 4-wheel traction drives is capable of reaching an output torque of 40.000 Nm, and is driven by a liquid cooled 30kW electric motor. The independent control of each wheel enables backhoe loaders to be driven better on slippery surfaces.

The Bonfiglioli 610 drives also enhance the precision of the machine, making maneuverability easier in tight spaces such as in building sites located at city centers. This solution enables OEMs to adopt hybrid technology that combines diesel and electric power, allowing energy generation and regeneration in a way that has never been done before for the construction machinery.

Bonfiglioli’s range of power transmission products permeate every walk of life

610w
Bonfiglioli has been in India for nearly two decades. Over this period, we have developed a range of power transmission products that permeate every walk of life such as industrial solutions that find applications across the breadth of the industry, wind solutions that drive an overwhelming majority of wind turbines in the country, and mobile solutions that drive a wide range of self-propelled agricultural, mining, warehousing, and construction equipment.

Bonfiglioli’s key strength lies in its ability to design and develop customised solutions for a wide range of user applications. Over time, we have gained deeper knowledge of specific application requirements of the Indian CE industry, helping us in developing the widest range of drives, unmatched in the industry. Infact, we are a single stop shop for most of our customers, catering to their diverse drive requirements. It is also important for us that we are a single source for most of our customers, indicative of the trust and confidence they have in us, which we greatly value.

Bonfiglioli’s India Design Center designs and develops products suited for Indian requirements, and also for global markets

Bonfiglioli is globally recognized as a pioneer in design and development of innovative and award-winning Transmission systems for Advanced Vehicles & Equipment across multiple Off-Highway markets, including Agricultural vehicles.

HDO
The Indian market has unique needs in terms of product performances, working conditions and prices. Bonfiglioli India Design Center is a special wing for designing and developing products and solutions suited for the Indian market, in collaboration with Vehicle & Equipment Manufacturers in India, and based on the concept of providing local solutions for local manufacturing. The Center works right from data acquisition from field conditions and transforms the information into a product dedicated for the Indian market, using the latest technology. The India Design Center also designs & develops products for global markets, with the concept ‘Make in India for global markets’.

We are on track with our plans to build a new 140,000 sq.ft facility, adjacent to the current plant at Thirumudivakkam, Chennai. It will house modern assembly lines, an R&D Centre and test labs, all built with the highest standards of quality and safety, and consistent with Bonfiglioli locations worldwide. This expansion will enable us to increase our production capacity to drastically reduce lead times to customers in India and nearby countries.

Our expertise lies in developing tailormade, highly customized power transmission solutions for OEMs

Our business philosophy always has been to partner with OEM who are leaders in their business and develop tailormade, highly customized power transmission solutions for their requirements. This approach has made Bonfiglioli the largest producer of planetary drives for mobile equipment.

India with its growing infrastructure need and low equipment density, offers immense opportunities for innovative gear drive solutions that have to meet specific local requirements. Challenge in such an environment remains in developing or adapting products and manufacturing capabilities that suit the specific demands of the Indian market. Bonfiglioli with its local design centre & manufacturing facilities, and having gained a deeper understanding of the Indian market, is well placed to take advantage of these opportunities.
