Tyrolit’s stall was buzzing with activity. The highlight was the showcase of their new solution, MIRA Ice, which are vitrified bonded profile grinding wheels for multi-rib gear grinding applications. With gear grinding being a very complicated process, the cool grinding capability of this particular product line helps in attaining accuracy and ensuring quality of the product, free of burn on the parts. Another product line was brought to the Indian market for external grinding. Called GENIS 2, this is a super abrasive using high technology when it comes to the construction of light-weight wheels. For the tooling industry, Tyrolit has brought a lot of new solutions, which actually brings down the machining/grinding time of the tools. When everyone is talking about improving productivity, Tyrolit’s entire range of products is aimed at offering high productivity on the machines, while helping customers to utilise their machines, optimally.
When asked about the acceptance of high-technology products in India, Kumar said that if the Indian market were not accepting these kinds of products, it would have been very difficult for them to do business, which means that the market is opening up to advanced technology. “I should really complement the Indian industry, which is going in the right direction, and we are in no way inferior to any developed countries,” he said with apparent pride.
“The expectations have always been high from the Indian market. Now, when we see the response at this year’s IMTEX, we feel like we are really going to meet these expectations. There is a clear indication of that,” opined Kumar. In fact, he suggested that they would be able to achieve a double digit growth this year.
