If you know the laws of buoyancy it doesnt mean that you know
how to swim. It is only through jumping in the water that you get
the feel of the depth. This is applicable to every aspect of life.
Therefore practical training is of utmost importance.
The object of undergoing this training was to get familiar with
the weary waters of the industry and to learn how to put theory
into practice. I have been greatly privileged to have undergone
training at PTL.
This report contains the extract of things I learned during my
training period.

ny endeavor cannot lead to success unless and until a proper platform is provided
for the same. This is the reason I find myself very fortunate to have undergone
my industrial training of four weeks at PUNJAB TRACTORS LIMITED. The
persons of my department and all other departments have extended a warm and
helping hand.
I am very fortunate to have had a chance to feel the gravity of what role !echanical
"ngineering plays in the industry. It was a golden opportunity for me to get a chance
to experience what it feels to be in a company where discipline# $uality and hard work
are the motto. This training helped me a lot in bridging the gap between the
theoretical and the practical aspects of my knowledge.
%irst of all I would like to thank Mr. K.K Sharma for his valuable guidance &
encouragement as a teacher and a friend throughout my training period.
I am also thankful to MR. J. SINGH for giving me an opportunity to undergo
training in such a renowned company.
!y heartily thanks to Mr.H.S.Baweja who was my project manager & my guide
through the project works. They always went out of their way to help me at all times.
Their experience & knowledge motivated me to bring out the best in times.
I am sure that the knowledge & information that I have gained during this period
would be of immense value for my growth in the field of !echanical "ngineering.

India being a predominantly agricultural country# where agriculture is the
life and blood of the economy# has been a traditional manufacturer of
different types of farm machinery and implements. 'owever# the use of
advanced agricultural techni$ues in India started only in early sixties.
!oderniBation and tractorCiBation in Indian agriculture is only post
independence phenomenon. .ne of the achievements of green revolution has
been that the farmers increasingly realiBed the advantage of tractorCiBation
for obtaining the timeliness of operations. This would happen only because of
awareness of new farm technology among the farmers# rise in the level of
their income and education.
The biological source of energy especially bullocks# could not cope with the
re$uirements of the changed situation. Therefore# introduction of tractors
got accelerated in several agriculturally advanced states of country like
Punjab# 'aryana# !aharashtra# etc. Tractors were introduced to Indian
agriculture in early twenties. )h. >oginder )ingh was the first farmer to
$(e a tractor# called a steam plough then# on the ;?<<< acres estate he had
inherited in the remote 6heri district of /ttar Pradesh. The demand of
tractors rose sharply in last two decades. 'owever# the rate of adaptation
of tractors is different in different parts of the country. Punjab occupies
number one rank in this regard. Punjab possesses only ;.3D of the
geographical area of the countryE the density of 83 tractors per hectare in
Punjab is the highest as compared to national average of ;<.3 tractors per
India is primarily an agrarian nation# with more than 3< per cent of our +,P
being contributed directly or indirectly by agriculture. *o wonder# India is
considered the largest tractor market in the world. If that sounds great# let
us face hard facts. In terms of total tractors in use in the country# we are
ranked a distant eighth. In terms of penetration# India has a tractor density
of ;<.3 tractors per thousand hectares of +ross -ropped rea F+-G as
compared to the international average of close to A< tractors per thousand
%iguratively speaking# Indias large gross cropped area F+-G is next only to
the big two H /) and (ussia. That and the highly fragmented land holdings
in India have helped our country to become the largest tractor market in
the world. Thus the Indian tractor market# per )e# has to be viewed only
after considering its position in the world.
,espite a phenomenal increase in tractor population in the country# the
tractor density is very low at about ;<.3 tractors per thousand hectares of
+- in comparison to the international average of about ?8 tractors. lso#
the small siBe of land holding in India# have led to low average power of
tractors at A3 'orse Power F'PG# which is far lower than the global average
of above 8< 'P.

The decade of 4<s India saw green revolution resulting in increase in both
production and productivity. =ith the parallel emphasis on industrialiBation#
the birth of Indian Tractor Industry took place in ;:3:C4< when the
imports were restricted and 3 tractor manufacturing units set up in the
private sector# all with foreign collaboration. ,ate of commencement of
commercial production and collaboration are given in following table. Total
indigenous production of tractors by ;:43 was just 4<<<.
=ith the successful introduction and acceptance of the high yielding seeds#
however# there was a sudden upsurge in the demand for tractors after ;:47
and the demand started multiplying at an annual rate of approximately 3<D
F;:47I;8#<<<E ;:7<I AA#<<<G. natural conse$uence of this sharp upsurge
and conse$uent shortage was a heavy premium on the price of tractors.
(ecogniBing the situation# import of tractors into the country was liberaliBed
and over and above the domestic production of ?<#<<<. In ;:7<# ;A#<<<
tractors were imported.
The +overnments decision to freely invite new entrepreneurs to
manufacture tractor in ;:48 and sudden upsurge in demand# with the green
revolution# led to a scramble of new entrepreneurs for new collaborators. 4
units eventually# established the actual manufacturing facilities. They were
as followsI
The Ma!$r&) Year( ,
=ith the entry of new units in ;:7< and increasing +overnment pressure
towards indigeniBation picked up substantially after ;:7< and by ;:78 almost
all the tractors manufactured were nearly indigenous. fillip to
indigeniBation was also given by the overall industrialiBation of the country#
when a large number of ancillary manufactures had also established them
and were in a position to supply a wide variety of components to the tractor
The sharp liberaliBation of imports in ;:7< had given the nascent Indian
Tractor Industry a substantial setback in ;:7<C7A# when low cost import
particularly from "ast "uropean countries had become far more attractive.
In India# the variety in land conditions makes it necessary to diversify the
availability of tractors. Today tractors with 'P ranging from ;? to 73 are
available in India. t present 22 models tractors are available in India# listed

The tractor industry is segmented on the power J siBe of the tractor engine#
expressed in terms of horse power F'PG. The 'PCwise composition of tractor

?<<A. It can also be seen that demand for less than the A< 'P segments#
which used to be A3D in %0 ;::<H;::; has been pushed to the back seat by
the A; H2< 'P segment.
This shows an interesting shift in tractor demand from lower 'P to higher
'P tractors in recent times. The shift could be categoriBed as two H fold.
.ne# the drastic shift from less than A< 'P to A; H 2< 'P levels and two#
the meager shift from 2; H 3< 'P to 3< 'P levels. The general change in
the farmers preference for higher 'P tractors is significant in more ways
than one. %irstly# it seems to belie the notion that as the average farm siBes
dwindle# it would render the use of tractor uneconomical. Then# there is the
running costs angle to it as well. =hile the higher 'P tractors are more
costly in terms of maintenance and running costs# still the fact of the
matter is that the sale of the higher 'P tractors are increasing.

It has been established that there is a close relationship between the
growth rate in food grain production and intensity of tractorCiBation.

complete accessories etc. In all the above stages of assembly# the skilled
workers are used to accomplish all the stages of assembly. 1ut they are also
held by the pneumatic bolt guns and the over head automatic conveyors and
the alarm conveyor etc to make their job easy. lso the whole of the
assembly is done on the assembly jigs or stands which is kept moving at a
speed of about 7cmJmm. lso it is to be made in mind that any spill of the
sub parts such as bolts# nuts etc. by mistake is not going to spoil the working
space as all these
spills gets underneath the working space and as a result the working space
remains clean and tidy.

'eat treatment shop plays a very important role in every industry. In
automobile industry the important components are gears# shafts etc. these
need to be heat treated to impart desired strength and increase the life of
components. The heat treatment shop at PTL is e$uipped with several gas
carburising furnaces# $uenching tanks# induction hardening machines and
shot blasting furnaces. The shop is manned by a highly skilled work force.

Process of adding carbon to the large surface layer of the component is
called carburising. It is the process of case hardening# which is the addition
of some elements like carbon# nitrogen to the surface by diffusion from the
surrounding medium at high temperature. It can be done in three waysI C
Ga( %ar@$r&(&) L&D$&# %ar@$r&(&) Pa%0 %ar@$r&(&)
The purpose of carburising is to obtain high surface wear resistance and to
obtain a hard surface. t PTL gas carburising is carried out in muffle
furnace using isopropyl alcohol as a source of carbonaceous gas. The
hydrocarbon decomposes at a high temperature thereby releasing atomic
carbon. In this case it is necessary to maintain a continuous fresh stream of
carburising gases. The amount of carburising gases depends upon rate of
combustion of gases. Tempering generally follows a carburisation process#
which is done to avoid brittleness due to cementite network and to make the
surface ductile.
It is the generally the final operation of all the steel components after they
have been hardened. These processes consist of heating to marten site
state for a scheduled period to an indicated temperature in a range between
room temperature and critical temperature# followed by cooling. It reduces
the internal stresses and stabiliBes the internal structure of the component.
It converts hard brittle steel into metal of hardness as well as ductility by
reducing grain siBe. -ooling rate after temperature rise also affects the
residual stresses# slower the cooling rate lesser the stresses.
*ormaliBing is a type of heat treatment applicable to ferrous metals only..
In this process iron alloy casting is heated to about 3<C4< degrees above
the critical temperature range# holding the casting for definite time and
then letting it cool in still air. The treatment is same as annealing and it
eliminates casting from cooling stresses. The yield strength of annealed
components is more than that of unannealed one.
I#$%!&" har#e((
It is employed for increasing the surface hardness of steel. 'igh fre$uency
current is passed. 'igh voltage current# which is transformed into current of
low voltage and high ampere# is passed through induction coil surrounding the
surface to be hardened. The coil induces the current into the component#
which gradually raises the temperature of the component. It is then cooled
rapidly by spraying water from water jacket. ,epth of hardness generally
varies from ?.?C ?.7 mms.
'eat may be removed or $uenching can be done by immersing the hot
component into a bath of water or dressed oil. t PTL special type of oil is
used for $uenching purpose. It is meta$uench 2< or servo $uench ;;. =hen
the hot component is dipped in the $uench tank it is immediately surrounded
by oil vapor envelope. To avoid this a motor is run to remove the oil. The
transfer of heat slows down and hence the internal stresses also come down.

1ombarding the component with lead fillings does it. The reason for shot
blasting is to clean the surface i.e. removes scales and material from the
component. clean uniform and in some cases final finished components is
obtained after shot blasting.

!any changes have taken place in the maintenance system and practice used
in the industries with the progress made by technology. long with
production# maintenance plays vital role. In fact production and maintenance
go side by side If a machine is under breakdown# it can not be subjected to
the production process with the advent of new and modern technology# the
entire concept of maintenance has changed. "arlier maintenance practices
were only confined to the breakdown maintenance# but now different types
of maintenance practices are followed likeI
;. )cheduled maintenance
?. 1reak down maintenance
A. Preventive maintenance
2. Predictive maintenance
The following are the main objectives of maintenanceI
To achieve the minimum break down level and to achieve the
production target at low cost.
To keep the plant in proper working condition.
!achine and other facilities should be arranged so that they can be
used to their max. capacity.
The !aintenance division of the factory ensures the availability of all
the facilities necessary for the performance of functions at optimum
return of investment.

This can be made possible to cent percent by systematic maintenance. In
Punjab tractors limited systematic maintenance operations are practiced to
improve the plant availability and to achieve the goal at a reasonable cost.
i.e. to achieve availability performance at the lowest cost and within the
safety constants.
