UCAM Nimble Machines Drive to Commitment for Quality Gear Manufacturing Solutions
Nimble Machines was established with the vision of providing innovative gear manufacturing solutions that are productive, precise, and rigid.
By: Sai Sagar
With over 30 years of rich expertise in manufacturing sophisticated & technologically advanced CNC machines, UCAM launched a strategic business vertical in 2015 under the brand name “Nimble Machines”.
Nimble Machines offers high-speed CNC gear manufacturing solutions. Their portfolios consist of CNC gear hobbing machines- VAJRA 130, VAJRA 250, and VAJRA 400 capable of up to 8 modules and 400mm diameter.
Nimble Machines also manufactures TARANG-325, a 5-axis CNC spiral bevel gear generator machine. It is capable of machining gears up to 7 modules and 325mm diameter using a face milling method.
World Class Facility
Nimble machines manufacturing facility is located in a lush green facility in the industrial town of Dobaspet on the outskirts of Bangalore.
It is home to the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that boasts of features like dustproof, energy-efficient, pressurized air conditioning environment coupled with the best 5-axis machining centers, Horizontal Machining Centers, Vertical Machining Centers, Vertical Turning Lathe among others. The precise and consistent control of temperature is very important in terms of product quality and process efficiency.
High-quality inspection equipment and practices play a vital role in inspecting high precise parts which go into the VAJRA gear hobbing machines for achieving high repeatability and accuracy of up to DIN 7 class.
The Nimble Machines facility consists of equipment such as laser calibration equipment, auto-collimator, CMMs, and roundness tester. Every part is inspected so as to adhere to the tight tolerances and achieve the best quality output.
High Skill and Superior Practices
Nimble machines consist of a passionate, highly skilled and efficient assembly team backed with the rich experience of manufacturing industry-leading UCAM’s Rotary tables among other CNC machines.
As part of the quality assurance programs, each machine undergoes laser calibration and documentation to ensure that they are working to the best of their ability and improved accuracy, efficiency, and yield. This enables the machine geometry and alignment to adhere to the latest IS: 8407 acceptance conditions for gear hobbing machines.
To further enhance the quality, productivity, and improvement of work, 5S has been implemented and followed. This helps the organization to strengthen Total Productive Maintenance (TPM).
Nimble machines’ drive to quality gear-related solutions is a long-standing testament to their in-house excellence.
