The Lila Poonawalla Foundation planned another exciting visit for her girls to one of Indias leading companies. This time they explored Tata Cummins Limited (TCL) to pursuing engineering.
TCL is a joint venture between Cummins Inc. USA, the world’s largest independent designer and manufacturer of diesel engines, and Tata Motors, India’s largest automobile manufacturer. TCL manufactures fuel efficient and ‘clean’ diesel engines.
The girls got an opportunity to witness the mechanism of the entire automated manufacturing lines where only 2 human interventions are required, i.e. only for loading and unloading. The girls were extremely thrilled to see these automated working systems, which are and only seen on Discovery Channel or Youtube. Right from rough and fine finishing, honing, milling to cutting, the girls were exposed to various operations.
The highlight was the visit to the assembly line and painting section, where water based paints were applied by 2 robots.
