Bangalore: ABB has inaugurated a new production line for drives at it's facility in Bangalore. With this new line, the ACS 850,ACQ 810 and ACSM1 models of drives will now be locally manufactured in India. Production is set to begin in December with first deliveries going to customers at the end of December 2010.

Jukka Poutanen, Global Product Group Manager of Low Power AC Drives, said that the Finnish and Indian team worked in close collaboration to ensure the production line was in place in the shortest amount of time.

The ACS 850,ACQ 810 and ACSM1 models of drives are primarily used in the process industry segments such as pulp & paper, mining, cement, chemical, and oil & gas industries. They are designed to increase the efficiency of energy used in applications such as cranes, winders and mixers. The drives, which are highly flexible and compact, can be configured to meet various industry and application needs.

"Over the years, we have watched this factory grow from being a single line of drives that manufactured 14000 units per year until today when we are manufacturing 30,000 units. Our customers are also growing with us and are demanding state-of-the-art drive solutions which will help them to save energy, which these new lines will help us to meet," said Biplab Majumder, Managing Director and Country Manager for ABB in India.

The inauguration of the new line was hosted by Local Business Unit manager for drives, KN Sreevatsa and approximately 300 guests, including key customers, channel partners, factory workers and company officials attended the function.

"It has always been a pleasure to work with ABB. The support we get from the local team and the immediate response really sets ABB apart from competitors in the market." Said Mr. Subraya from Promac Engineers, an important OEM for ABB Drives in India.
