Case Study 1
TECHNOLOGY IN A FOREIGN INDUSTRY
Develop countries, with their high labour costs and strict environmental regulations
translating to higher pollution related costs, began to put up the shutter of their forge
shops due to noise and heat levels.
To make a forging, a piece of metal, mainly steel, usually hot, is worked into a
predetermined shape like bots, fastners, crankshafts, flanges, gear blanks, railway
wagon axels. Depending upon the type of pressure application used, forgings can either
be hammer forging or press forgings, the latter being more sophisticated. In India, most
forging units are equipped with hammers, they are much cheaper and do well for lower
volumes. Depending upon the type of die used, forging can be closed die or open die.
Closed die forgings are used to make smaller parts such as crankshafts and gear
blanks, used mainly in auto sector. Open die forging are used to make the larger and
heavier parts used in heavy machinery.
As per AIDFASI (Association of Indian Drop Forging and Stamping Industries) there are
around 285 units in the steel forging industry with an aggregate installed capacity of
6.85 lakes TPA with another 300 tiny units producing low-tech forged components 1/5 of
it is in open die forging and the rest in closed die. The organized sector has a major
presence in the closed die segment where the quality requirements of OEM's and
export buyers are very stringent.
Global auto-makers are increasing their out-sourcing of components: general Motors- a
$ 150 billion company, currently makes 70% of its required component in-house and
plan to bring it down to 35% in the next few years.
Historically India has concentrated on the lower end of the market, now only there is
increase in export of customized forgings. India has good engineering base, overheads
are low and shops can make small requirements. Availability of raw materials, carbon
and alloy steels is no longer problem. The wage rate here is 1/10 of developed
countries. Problems are technology obsolescence, low material yield, low labour
productivity and high fuel consumption. Over time, the advantages of lower labour costs
could be negated by these factors. The competition is from China, Indonesia, Mexico &
Brazil. Steels, which accepts for 60% of costs is relatively costlier, power and fuel costs
are too higher. Technology upgradation is required t lower fuel consumption and
improve material yield.
Questions:-
1. What is technology in a forging Industry?
2. What does technology upgradation mean in this case?
3. What mode of technology transfer would you recommend for technology
upgradation?


Case Study 2
Managing Technology and R&D
ESAB Indian limited, Bombay is a leading manufacturer of welding consumables and
equipment. ESAB India Limited is the Indian associate of ESAB AB, the Swedish
multinational and the world's largest company in welding and cutting, with production
centers, core representation in most of the countries.
ESAB India, a Public Limited Company with paid up capital of Rs. 50 million, employs
206 people, including 35 S&T personnel, at its Kalwa unit which is the major
manufacturing facility. It had a turnover of above Rs. 30 crores during 1991-92. It is
licensed to make 1250 nos. of welding and cutting equipment and 24020 km of welding
electrodes.
The in-house R&D unit of the company employs about 10 persons including S&T
personnel (scientists and engineers) and is headed by a well qualified chief at the level
of General Manager directly reporting to the Managing Director. The R&D unit is a
separate entity situated within the company premises occupying a floor area of about
300 sq. m. but closely interacts with other functional groups. It has well equipped
laboratories and pilot plant facilities for development purposes. The annual R&D
expenditure was about Rs. 24 lakhs during 1991-92, i.e. about 0.8% of the annual
turnover. A good technical library having books, journals and periodicals in the field of
manufacturing is maintained. The company also encourages close interaction with the
relevant R&D organizations and academic institutions. R&D personnel participate in
technical seminars and meetings in India and abroad. A computerized information
facility has also been built up.
The R&D unit of the ESAB India closely interacts from time to time with the principals in
Sweden and at other places on developmental needs and receives relevant technical
information which is very useful for R&D in India. In fact, there are some products/areas
which have specifically been developed to meet the needs of India and could be
relevant to other developing countries as well, but are not covered in the product range
of the principals abroad. Most of the developments relate to highly specific applications
such as for oil, power, underwater uses and are import substitutes. There are immense
export possibilities through constant development efforts to meet the specific
requirements of other countries.
In the early eighties ESAB realized that to survive in the competitive world of welding it
had to become the biggest company and a leader in technology. As a route to achieve
this objective, ESAB acquired a number of companies active in the field of welding and
cutting. It acquired the European welding activities of Philips electrical and electronic
group, based in the Netherlands in 1985. Subsequently, the welding business unit of
Philips India Limited also became a part of ESAB Group in July 1988. This unit was not
doing well commercially. The turnover of ESAB (India) almost tripled in three years due
to active marketing efforts. In May, 1991 ESAB India Limited acquired the welding
business of Indian Oxygen Limited (IOL), Calcutta. The turnover then approached Rs.
100 crore. The new Indian organization now has four major manufacturing centers and
has sales outlets in all parts of the sub-continent.
TECHNOLOGY AND STRATEGY POLICY
ESAB's objective was to become a world leader in welding technology. This was to be
achieved by carrying in-house research and by absorbing the technology of newly
acquired companies. ESAB now has well established R&D facilities in a number of
countries, including India. The R&D unit of ESAB is a DSIR recognized unit and works
presently mainly for the Indian market. In setting the objective of ESAB India, the top
management of the parent company takes into account the in-house capability and
potential for further advancement through imported technology. All possible support to
R&D is extended by the management to retain the leadership in its field.
The company's commitment to welding technology and product development is evident
from the goal of the organization which is to provide technical solutions to the
customers. Here the organization insists on the important distinction that is to provide
solutions and does not sell products.
In a world where technology dominates there are new opportunities for continuous
development. The development of low moisture absorption welding electrodes is a good
example. The offshore structures of the North Sea required welding consumables
(electrodes) which would produce welded fabrication free from structural failure in a very
harsh working environment. The cost of such failures could be tremendous compared to
the cost of welding consumables. Typically, welding consumables constitute less than
1.5% of the total cost of the structure. The cost of failure of the structures is frequently
many times the cost of the structure itself.
The early objective was to have extra low hydrogen in the weld metal. For this purpose
special low hydrogen electrodes were made and then re-packed just before use. This
costly process could be eliminated by packing the electrodes in vacuum sealed
packages (Vac Pac) at a relatively high cost. Efforts at developing the low cost devices
for packing continued. The low moisture absorption electrodes have now been
produced which reduce the cost of the solution of the welding problem. At the same
time the product was further developed to give improved welding characteristics in order
to improve manufacturability and to reduce cost.
Expenses incurred on product and process development have to be recovered from
sales so that R&D process for continuous improvement can go on. The key words which
characterize ESAB's commitment to the continuous development of processes and
system are:
The productivity of the welder and fabricator
The quality of weld deposit
The working environment
PRODUCTIVITY
During the last decade and a half, a shift from the manual welding process to semi and
fully automatic welding processes has taken place in most of the developed countries,
mainly to achieve higher productivity and lower manufacturing cost. Today in these
markets more than half of the total production of weld metal is derived from continuous
solid and flux cored wires processes. It, therefore, became necessary to develop
consumables to meet this challenge. Many new automatic consumables have been
added.
There was a parallel development of new welding machines to match the automatic
welding processes (including welding robots). The packing standards were also
changed to suit automatic welding consumables for uninterrupted supply of high-quality
wire to the robotic processes (ESAB's Marathon Pac).
QUALITY
Products are services which do not meet the quality requirements of the customers and
do not stand the test of time. Today quality does not remain within the boundaries of the
product alone. Total quality is the need of the hour. Introduction of a Total Quality
Program is the ESAB group is a step in this direction. While finalizing the requirement
for a new product the quality of the weld is inbuilt in the specification. Welding is not an
end in itself. It is a process to produce a structure. The most successful welds produce
the base component or fabrication at the lowest level.
ENVIRONMENT
The cost and quality of the weld very much depend on the welder who in turn is
profoundly influenced by the working environment. The welder will produce better welds
in a friendly environment or with electrodes with better welding characteristics, a single
point control (synergic control) of the welding machines and reduce fume. Controlling
the toxicity limit of the welding fume shows concern towards the health of the welder
whilst at the same time improving the effectiveness. ESAB's R&D is in the forefront of
action to make the environment friendlier to the welder.
As can be seen, developments in welding concern while process and are realized by
improving existing products and introducing new technologies. Attention will, in future,
focus increasingly on issues relating to the internal and external environment and
economy. Combining ESAB's product, process research and development with the
customers' production experience often lead to collaborative ventures to improve
economy, quality, and productivity and safety standards in the latter works.
The R&D department of ESAB India is the focal point of all technical activities of ESAB
in India. It also acts as the interface between the principals in Sweden and the Indian
organization. It undertakes research and development activities related to new products
and technologies for meeting the needs of the growing Indian market. Emphasis is on
continuous local technological development, absorption and up-gradation of imported
technologies for all the welding activities.
The department is manned by a group of highly qualified persons who have the
experience in other line functions so that their perception of the problem is realistic
rather than theoretical. Members have had previous experience in quality control,
production or marketing before they joined the R&D group. They are capable of
understanding the real problems or the requirement of new products as envisaged by
the customer. All members of the department help each other to keep expectation within
feasible limits.
Technology and product is market lead in India. For instance, in a specific nuclear
project the requirements were very stringent and critical. The required product was
developed in two phases. In the beginning, the technical requirements were first met
and subsequently the cost was reduced. Initially, market demand was not large but with
time it expanded and now they have a proprietary product with large demand.
Many such market-led developments have been successfully carried out in India. This
has helped ESAB earn the name of a technology based company. The R&D department
accordingly has established its importance in the organization and has representation in
all decisions of the group management pertaining to technology and product
management.
METHODOLOGY
If the product development is market-led, the marketing department has to present its
requirements in regard to future market demand, possible new businesses or new
applications. Once the need has been agreed the R&D department attempts to
ascertain whether the product is available within the ESAB group. If it is, the principals
abroad are contracted for details of formulation and production data. In the event that a
group product cannot be identified, then the R&D department of the principals combines
with their Indian counterparts for a program for development. After establishing the
basic formulation and production data, work on adaptation to Indian condition starts.
This adaptation is necessary because of variations in the raw materials and production
plant.
The formulations are broken into their basic chemical constituents and on them the
chemical composition of the indigenous raw materials is superimposed. Imbalances are
suitably adjusted to provide the correct weld metal analysis and welding characteristics
of the electrode. Theoretical knowledge and practical experience are essential for doing
this. A tentative formula is obtained which is refined through experiment to give the final
desired product. The new formulation is first tried on pilot plant and subsequently
transferred to production. For successful development and commercialization of a
product, marketing and sales, materials management and production departments are
all involved. The R&D personnel remain involved till the product is established
commercially. R&D must also be involved in manufacturing technology to meet the
company's own demand for improved productivity, quality or to increase manufacturing
flexibility.
DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED
What has been discussed above works if the situation is ideal? Reality is often different.
Some of the major difficulties encountered in actual practice relate to:
Changes in specifications during the development period
Failure to achieve the required result by the R&D department
Unduly long response time of development
Prohibitive cost of product
In the course of development, the customers' need may change. If such a change is not
very major, it may only cause a small delay but in case of major changes, it may mean
development in an entirely new direction. Alternatively, the specifications may
sometimes be too stringent that it may not be possible to manufacture a new product
within the constraints and projected cost. It is also possible that the targets laid down in
the guidelines received from the principals cannot be met because of non-availability of
specific raw materials at reasonable prices. These are all major handicaps in developing
the desired product.
Undue delay in developing a product may result in losing market opportunity for which it
was intended. Often development may use costly materials and the finished available
product may become more expensive than an alternative product in the market resulting
in failure to develop a commercially viable product. All problems and difficulties
described above combine into a single problem-loading the interest of the customer.
These difficulties can arise in market-led development. However, if development is
production-led, many new and good developments never reach the market because
they do not satisfy a recognized customer need. In relation to development activity, the
following observations of general nature can be made:
1. The top management must commit itself (through the company objectives) to render
active support of development of product and technology. Often in times, expenses
incurred to development come under the microscope. The commitment of the top
management will ensure that in the long-term, investment in R&D activities will pay off
handsomely.
2. Development is not a single department's job. Active involvement from marketing and
sales, production and materials management is essential to make the new product
reach the customer at right time and at the right cost.
3. Cost of the product plays an important role in the development efforts. This point
must be kept in mind from the very beginning. A developer must be conversant with the
cost structure of the product.
4. All industrial R&D activities must have commercialization of the development as its
goal. Any development will be termed a failure if it does not improve the bottom line of
the organization.
5. Many difficulties may be faced during the R&D process, so R&D is assured of a quick
and easy success.
6. Guidelines and directions from the principals abroad are only part of the story. Local
R&D is important to satisfy local needs and constraints. Appropriate technology is the
need for all R&D effort while adapting products and technologies from abroad.
7. ESAB India's role in future will be to develop the existing techniques and to
participate in the research and development of new techniques with a view to maintain
its leading position in the field of welding and cutting in the 21st century.
OPPORTUNITIES OF ESAB INDIA
In the international scenario the technological developments are taking place at a very
rapid pace. India with its wealth of technical expertise should adopt overseas
technological advances for speedy commercial implementation and benefit from them.
Such adaptation will hasten the process of industrialization. Indian R&D efforts should
be directed initially towards meeting the local needs and overcoming local constraints
by suitable adaptation. But finally we must aim to be a world competitive supplier of
welding and cutting solutions.
