The company has a wide product basket consisting of series of machines in CNC Turning Centres, CNC Turn Mill Centres, CNC Vertical Machining Centres, CNC Horizontal Machining Centres, CNC Vertical Line Machines and High-tech CNC 3-axis and 5-axis machining centres. These machines find application in across the industries include defence, research institutes, aerospace, automobiles, die and mould, general engineering, power, medical, and agriculture.
Today Jyoti sells its product throughout India and in 37 other countries worldwide through its principal offices in Rajkot, India and Strasbourg, France and 23 regional offices in India, sales offices in Germany and Canada and a dealer network across 18 countries.
Its key customers include Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., Volkswagen, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bharat Forge Ltd., L&T, Titan, Godrej, railways, ordnance factories, and heavy vehicle factories. Jyoti has installed over 7,000 machines across the globe.Commenting on the company’s achievement Vikas Taneja, Vice President – Marketing, Jyoti CNC Automation said, “Jyoti today is the only completely integrated CNC machine manufacturer in the country with existing land holding large enough to expand capacity two times present size. Our world-class manufacturing facility includes state-of-the-art machining shop, fully-automated foundry, sheet metal and paint shop and a temperature controlled sub-assembly and assembly unit employing more than 1,300 employees.”
Manufacturing capabilitiesJyoti today operates through three manufacturing facilities in Rajkot which is spread across 3,36,000 square metres. It has an installed capacity to manufacture more than 3,500 machines per annum.
Jyoti has a world-class machining centre wherein it develops and manufactures components like spindles, turrets, headstock, as well other sub-assemblies etc. for captive use. The machine shop houses 5-axis machining centres, CNC universal grinding machines as well as horizontal and vertical machining centres to manufacture components with precision accuracy.
Jyoti also houses a captive foundry, sheet metal unit, paint shop, sub-assembly and assembly unit.
Its captive fully mechanised foundry (Omega, UK) has an annual capacity of 12,000 metric tonnes to cater to the needs of preparing the casting beds for its machines.
The sheet metal shop has the latest laser cutting and bending machines from Amada and Trumph respectively. The sheet metal is CED primer coated and finished with automated powder coating and painting line.
Paint shop comprises of 7 tanks pre-treatment process following by CED primer coating and conveyorised baking with powder coating booths. There are four powder coating booths in line of different colours.
The sub-assembly and assembly areas are temperature controlled and each assembly line or station is equipped with all necessary instruments for smooth assembly of the machine.
Nurturing partnershipsIn 2007, Jyoti acquired a 150 years old French machine tools giant – Huron Graffenstaden SAS. Huron is having two manufacturing plants at Strasbourg and a strong sales and service network all over Europe. The acquired company is a pioneer for its 5-axis machining centres, having a renowned clientele like Volkswagen, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Siemens, Boeing, Air Bus, Fiat, BMW, Mercedes, and GE etc.
Jyoti – Huron has a strong sales network internationally at France, Great Britain, Portugal, Turkey, Netherland, Hungary, Slovakia Austria, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Canada, USA, Iran Australia, Brazil, Middle East, Argentina and South Africa.
The series of machines offered by Jyoti – Huron are:• CNC Turning Centres• CNC Turn Mill Centres• CNC Vertical Machining Centres• CNC Horizontal Machining Centres• CNC 5-axis Machining Centres.__________________________________________________________RX-Series
To match demand of greater accuracy and total reliability at higher speeds Jyoti CNC has developed RX Series Vertical Machining Centres. The high dynamic structure supports rapid axis take-off with high accelerations. Broad rigid base and column structure dampens effect of vibrations and balances whole machine while taking heavy cutting load with higher machining parameters.
USP• High dynamics support rapid up to 40m/min• High speed drilling tapping as well as milling operations• Fast toll changing, just 2.4 seconds• Supports rapid axis take-offs with acceleration of 5 m/s²• Wider high precisions liner motion guide ways• Efficient chip disposal• 90-degree tilting operator panel• Auto and manual coolant• 8,000 RPM rigid BT 40 spindle• Electrical with quality device and panel AC• Hi-tech features like linear glass scale feedback and coolant through spindle, high speed mortised spindle and others can be incorporated in these machine.____________________________________________________
VTL Series (Vertical Turning Lathe) VTL Series machines are specially designed for larger diameter components machining in heavy engineering industries such as oil and gas, earthmoving, automobile and subcontracting industries. Bed and column made from higher grade cast-iron providing maximum rigidity, thermally stability for better machine life and accuracy. X & Z Axis moves on wide harden and ground box guide ways which allows vibration free cutting and more rigid machining at greater extension from turret.
USP• Heavy and rigid single piece structure• Heavy duty box type guide ways• High performance rigid spindle• Counter balance Z axis• Hydraulic chucking• Auto and manual coolant system• Electrical with quality devices and panel with A.C.• Centralised and programmable lubrication• Efficient chip disposal.____________________________________________________
Whether in the automotive, instruments, hydraulic or electronics industry – the AX series, offers ideal performance options for sophisticated machining for bar, shaft and chucking components. The frame sizes with different options are unique and contribute to the success of this series. They have been designed for flexible tailor-made solution to meet varying demands. Multitasking with combination of two electro spindles and live tool turrets with one component clamping with C&Y Axis. Design shows excellent vibration damping to deliver high level of
machined surface quality and accuracy even for hard part machining with high rapid.
USP• Unique single piece construction• 12 station live tool turret with Y axis• High speed electro spindle with C axis and rigid headstock• Secondary spindle available• Hydraulic chucking• Auto and manual coolant system• Electrical with quality devices and panel with A.C.• Centralised and programmable lubrication.__________________________________________________________
Jyoti today is the only completely integrated CNC machine manufacturer in the country with existing land holding large enough to expand capacity two times present size.
