Industry: Login Steel, Out Cars

In the end I was able to see first hand one of the six plants Tata Motors in India in early July. And I deserve to take my hat off to India, especially Tata Motors already has a facility that motor vehicle industry that is not exactly small.
Tata Motors plant in Pune, Maharashtra is the second largest after the first plant in Jamshedpur which is active since 1954, after the plant is used as a starting locomotive 1945.
Initially I suspect manufacturing facility in Pune like Tata Motors car assembly plant generally in Karawang, Indonesia. Because of that, when I and a group of journalists asked to fill three vans no glass window, my forehead was wrinkled. “The car rides? As if still further? “Inner me.
“Please you select the van that we have provided. All can sit on the side of the window. We will guide you around the Tata Motors manufacturing facility here, “said the man was an employee of Tata Motors.
Without asking, I then select the leading van and took a stool at the side of the door. My goal, so that when he arrived at the location of the assembly plant, I could go down more quickly.
But my guess fumble. Tata Motors factory is very large, unlike the automobile factories in the country I have ever visited. Tata Motors factories around the facility on foot it seems like you are doing.
Extensive manufacturing facilities in Pune Tata Motors reached 325 hectares. This means three times the size of land owned Toyota’s manufacturing facility in Karawang.
So no wonder if Tata Motors presents ‘fleet travel’ to support guests who do a factory visit. And unique, it turns out the car that we crawled inch by inch in the Tata Motors factory. But if the Toyota or Honda factory in Karawang we simply walk away.
“Imagine if we had to walk, it can be drunk. Huge turn out. It’s hell, one-stop manufacturing. Steel entrance, exit (factory) so the car, “said journalist friend, while comparing with vehicle manufacturing facility in Indonesia.
Yes, that was the fact. Tata Motors factory is not only large, but also has great equipment supported to be able to build the car from zero.
I own a close look at how Tata Motors assisted robotic technology capable, builds transmission system, axle, suspension, chassis, body panels, until the machine. In this factory not only assembled commercial vehicles, but also passenger vehicles, such as the Tata Indica.
So it’s not like the world automobile factories in Indonesia, which only gives us assemble ration-penel body panels, interior, and engine. While the bolts were still imported from Thailand.
What about the quality of the products produced from Tata Motors plant? It tastes pretty common question answered by giving evidence that some truck and bus transmission system Mercedes-Benz was also made at the Tata Motors facility in Pune.
And, the leader in India’s commercial vehicle sales also have to build heavy military vehicles, including large trucks ballistic missile launchers. Remarkably, all can be done at the Tata Motors facility.
