CNC on Wheels is taking technology to the masses
March 11, 2023 2:25 pm
CNC on Wheels can help enhance the skills of the youth employed in the manufacturing industry, nurturing their technical capabilities and assisting them in learning and adopting the work environment with the latest and evolved CNC technologies.
Today, CNC machines are computer-controlled, highly automated equipment that has eliminated the requirement for manual interventions in the manufacturing process, which helps scale manufacturing that will ultimately save time and money without compromising accuracy or quality.
Among the many advancements in technology that have fostered development in the manufacturing industry, introducing the Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine is one of the most prominent. From using the “punched tape” technology when they were introduced in the 1940s-50s and now shifting to CAD (computer-aided design) files for prototype creation, CNC machines have come a long way.
Mitsubishi Electric CNC offers a wide range of high-quality products that meet the needs of the Indian market. Mitsubishi Electric CNC started its journey towards revolutionising the Indian machine tool market in 2013, with its first CNC manufacturing facility to ensure robust production in the country. Mitsubishi Electric CNC offers cutting-edge solutions that promise smoother and faster operations and a better finish, enhancing overall productivity and profitability. Designed to support the needs of the rapidly evolving manufacturing industry, Mitsubishi Electric CNCs perfectly embody the epitome of innovation.
CNC on Wheels: Taking the technology to the masses
Consistently working towards building a better and more sustainable future through innovation, Mitsubishi Electric CNC recently launched a unique initiative to help enhance India’s manufacturing ecosystem. “CNC on Wheels” is a simple caravan equipped with the two most prominent CNC controls by Mitsubishi Electric– the flagship product M80, and E80, a product with limited features, aimed at MSMEs and SMEs. The caravan flagged off from the Peenya Mitsubishi Electric CNC Technical Centre on January 18, 2022. It hit the roads of Bangalore, touring industrial areas to explain the products and their features, share knowledge about their operations and applications, troubleshoot, and even providing training for the CNC systems.
The caravan always has a qualified Mitsubishi Electric engineer to assist those interested, and all proper Covid-19 precautions are being observed to ensure safety for all.
Driving towards a better future
Aimed at building a strong manufacturing ecosystem, the “CNC on Wheels” initiative involves:
• Enhancing the skills of young machine operators.
• Getting feedback directly from end-users.
• Connecting directly with CNC operators and key decision-makers in the metal cutting industry.
Mitsubishi Electric CNC does not wish to limit technology and knowledge to the four walls of a classroom. It is taking their innovations and state-of-the-art training methods directly to the skilled and semi-skilled workforce, so they can get hands-on experience and get comfortable using these products. “CNC on Wheels” can help enhance the skills of the youth employed in the manufacturing industry, nurturing their technical capabilities and assisting them in learning and adopting the work environment with the latest and evolved CNC technologies.
Supporting the growth of India
Mitsubishi Electric CNC has always supported and nurtured innovation and development in India’s manufacturing industry, and CNC on Wheels is yet another step in the same direction. The deployment of the new training and demonstration vehicle enhances the overall skill set of CNC operators in the country. The initiative is also in line with the government’s ‘Make in India and Skill India” missions.
Employing innovation to facilitate the creation of a brighter, sustainable future and empowering the Indian market with revolutionary technologies, Mitsubishi Electric India is dedicated to ensuring consistent progress in the industry.
