Pump manufacturer Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) has opened a new manufacturing division at the company’s main plant in Kirloskarvadi.
The Advanced Technology Product Division (ATPD) has primarily been built as a dedicated manufacturing division for high-end technology products.
It is a state-of-the-art facility spread across 6,000 sq m and is fully equipped with modern machines and test facilities, including special measuring instruments.
The facility is a one-stop-shop for machining, quality control checks, assembly, and testing under high pressure and high temperature.
The company is among the only few providers of primary heat transfer pumps.
The facility is the latest addition to the various state-of-the-art technological capabilities and facilities available at the company’s mother plant in Kirloskarvadi.
The Kirloskarvadi plant, which is one of India's first industrial townships, has a comprehensive production capacity for a wide range of centrifugal pumps of various types and sizes backed by in-house design capabilities, thereby eliminating the need to rely on other countries.
It is home to Asia’s only 3-D printing machine for pump modelling and also houses Asia’s largest state-of-the-art hydraulic testing facility for testing centrifugal pumps.
