December 18, 2012 - Booming business in India, which was up 30% in 2011 and continues to increase in 2012, has made it essential for Sescoi to move offices to provide room for more engineers, and extra training facilities for its customers.
The new office address is Sescoi India Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Vasudha Equinox, Office No:- 405,406 & 407, S. No- 5/12, C.T.S. No:- 2504, Mumbai - Pune Highway, Bopodi 411003, Pune, India. Telephone +91 20 46701586 and +91 20 46701587.
The company’s WorkNC CAD/CAM software has proved extremely popular amongst leading Indian manufacturers including Bharat Forge, the second largest forging company in the world, and part of the $1.2 billion Kalyani Group; and Sermo ARRK India, part of the €1.8 billion ARRK Group; as well as smaller mold making companies such as ALPS.
Additionally, collaboration with the IMTMA (Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers Association) and TAGMA, the Tool & Gauge Manufacturer’s Association of India has helped to promote learning and expertise amongst Indian engineers through a series of highly popular road shows across the country and at the IMTMA’s Digital Factory in Bangalore.
As well as WorkNC CAD/CAM software, Sescoi India sell and supports WorkNC Electrode for the design and machining of EDM electrodes, WorkPLAN ERP and job management software, and the WorkXPlore 3D high speed viewer and analysis software, which speeds up product development in a low cost environment.
Sescoi’s ability to deliver a range of easy to use, advanced manufacturing techniques has been the key to its success in India. In particular, interest in WorkNC’s Auto 5 module has been sparked by a growth in demand for 5-axis machining technology. Companies such as Sridevi Tool Engineers have found it easy to produce 5-axis toolpaths with the software, using WorkNC’s ability to automatically convert 3-axis programs to 5-axis and, because the software is so easy to use, many companies are carrying out programming on the shop floor, increasing versatility and optimizing workforce performance.
Frederic Benoliel, Sescoi’s Head of Operations for India, says, “ The Indian economy is growing at an astonishing rate, and companies are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their requirements. Because our software has proved its value within leading automotive manufacturers and mold, die and toolmakers in Europe, we have the technology and the skills to help Indian engineers rapidly accelerate expertise, capability and productivity. Our new offices will give us the facilities necessary to service the growth in demand.”
