Successful project completion in record time: the first lathe of the type P 300 has been built at the Indian production and service location Deutsche Maschinen India in Kolkata. The team, headed by P. K. Mazumder, built the machine, which has been designed in Germany, within six months. P. K. Mazumder was more than satisfied with his employees' performance: "Our team reached the target within a tight schedule. Now they are ready to go ahead with manufacturing more lathes of the P 300 series." Indian customers were invited for a demonstration of the machine. Maximilian Thoma, President and COO of Maschinenfabrik Herkules Meuselwitz, where the P-series is built in Germany, welcomed them with a presentation of the company and introduced the following technical presentations.
The P 300 is a lathe for medium-sized to small workpieces. It reliably machines parts with a maximum length of 2,500 mm, a turning diameter of 700 mm and a maximum weight of 5 t. Thanks to its robust design, comprising high-quality cast iron components, it is characterized by outstanding concentricity and surface quality.
DMI has been offering machine components, service and modernizations for the Indian markets since 2007 and is well equipped for the production of new machines with a 1,100 m2 production facility and a comprehensive machine inventory. The lathe P 300 has been designed according to German quality standards in close cooperation with the production units in Siegen and Meuselwitz. This is also where the engineers and technicians at DMI have been trained. The completion of the project in record time means that Indian Herkules customers now benefit from a significant reduction of delivery times when buying P-series machines on the local market.
