Forms and Gears, Asia's leading fixture builder has recently designed and developed state of the art hydraulic fixtures to machine 3 and 4 cylinder Engine Blocks for American tractor manufacturer John Deere.

The fixtures have been designed to accomodate robot loading and unloading which reduces manpower and improves productivity.  Imported hydraulic elements from Japan have been used to ensure that high cutting parameters can be used thereby decreasing cylcle times and increasing productivity.

With an obvious cost advantage over European and Japanese competitors  Forms and Gears is increasingly being asked to develop precision fixtures for auto components not only from Indian manufacturers like Ashok Leyland, Tata Motors, Mahindra and Mahindra but also from MNC's like Hyundai, Ford, Caterpillar, Cummins etc.

Forms and Gears has over 35 years experience in the field and is one of the oldest and largest fixture builders in Asia. With plant and machinery valued at over 50 crores  its facilities now compare favourably with the best European and American companies. A lot of its recent enquiries come from European and Japanese machine tool manufacturers keen to leverage a cost advantage for their turnkey projects in India.

Forms and Gears now exports precision hydraulic fixtures to Japan, Singapore,  and the US and is the first choice  of the worlds leading auto majors setting up plants in India."
