Powering Growth with Emerging Technology [Nov 2011]

November 25, 2011 7:19 am

Powering Growth with Emerging Technology“With resources dedicated to studying, developing and implementing next generation manufacturing processes and technologies, we’re able to support new product growth and performance value for our customers”, said Ajay Das, Managing Director of Timken India
Being a leading manufacturer of highly engineered bearings, alloy steels and related components and assemblies for years, how has the journey been so far?The Timken Company began where traditional success stories usually end, at the conclusion of a long and profitable career. This was when Henry Timken, a visionary and innovator patented a tapered roller bearing. The next year, in 1899, he formed a company to produce his new product, establishing a bedrock value – innovation – that continues to drive Timken today. Henry solved a problem that had plagued carriage builders for many years – that is how to transport heavy loads while expending less energy and experiencing fewer breakdowns. Henry’s tapered roller bearing was the key; it could sustain forces from all directions, making turning much easier even under great weight. Henry was able to showcase the new bearing’s potential when his two sons outfitted a freight wagon with the innovation, then hauled exceptionally heavy cargo to the railroad station.
To this day we pursue Henry Timken’s vision of energy-saving possibilities by applying our expertise in friction management and power transmission to solve new problems.
Our products and services enable better performance from customers’ equipment and products, reducing heat and energy consumption, while extending maintenance intervals and system reliability. Timken is where our customers turn for improved efficiency and longer-lasting, safer products that make the world a better place.
At Timken, our customers are at the centre of everything we do and that is reflected in Timken’s vision, which is focused on improving the performance of customers’ applications. While this vision defines the ultimate destination, core values serve as the roadmap to guide our daily decisions for the benefit of all Timken stakeholders.
What are the quality control measures taken into consideration by the company to ensure customers’ satisfaction?Quality is the cornerstone of Timken’s brand promise to customers, and a basic requirement of global competitiveness. Our associates are deeply ingrained in quality processes to ensure that customers receive consistent, excellent quality in all Timken products and services everywhere in the world.
Our commitment to quality preserves the integrity of the Timken brand, not to mention the confidence we’ve built with our customers. That’s why we invest millions of dollars each year in R&D, training and process improvement – to ensure that customers receive consistent quality from Timken products, no matter where in the world they were manufactured.
We’ve taken great care to develop our Timken Worldwide Quality standards, which are executed without exception in every plant that produces Timken products. But in addition to setting our own standards, we’ve also helped define quality in the industry by creating the standards for the American Bearing Manufacturing Association (ABMA) and contributing to the standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
Timken’s Measurement of QualityQuality is the cornerstone of Timken’s reputation. The Timken Quality Management System (TQMS) reinforces our quality core value through targeted, disciplined best practices for all levels of the organisation, including both manufacturing and service processes.  TQMS works by protecting the Timken brand and setting clear guidelines for what are acceptable and exceptional levels of quality standards for our associates, customers and suppliers.
Based on ISO 9000, TQMS goes beyond and incorporates the most demanding requirements of our customers and best practices found both inside and outside of Timken. Its 20 modular elements form a common framework for how Timken associates achieve and measure quality. Each module is reviewed annually for continuous improvement, resulting in a constant increase in the minimum expectation of quality performance, with the goal of providing consistent quality, country to country.
With several companies going energy efficient with their products, what is Timken’s contribution towards the environment?Today more than ever, volatile fuel prices, environmental impacts from fossil fuels, and increased global demand for energy drive the need for energy efficiency. Developing new ways to create, transfer and control power can have numerous positive societal impacts, from improved energy efficiency that saves businesses and consumers money to reduced emissions that help sustain our environment. Timken’s products and services are fundamental to improving efficiency and reliability in rotating machinery.
Fuel-efficient bearings for vehiclesTimken’s fuel-efficient bearings for cars, trucks and other vehicles reduce power consumption by 30 per cent and improve fuel economy by as much as 2 per cent over traditional bearings. If all cars and light trucks in the US used our energy-saving bearings, each year 14 million fewer barrels of petroleum would be consumed and 230,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions would be eliminated.
