Technomet Group Inaugurates Bangalore Heat Treatment Facility

Today we go to India for a news item about commercial heat treater Technomet. Technomet is one of the larger heat treaters in India with a total of 15 sealed quench (batch IQ for us North Americans) and 20 vacuum furnaces spread over a number of different facilities around the country. November 5th of this year the company inaugurated a brand new facility called Bangalore Technomet Pvt Ltd., in the city of Bangalore. This is a partnership with gear manufacturer Bharat Gears Limited which will involve Technomet setting up two sealed quench furnaces manufactured by Triad Engineering inside the Bharat Gear plant in Lonand, Satara. The inauguration included a very typical Indian tradition of celebrating the start up by planting samplings and hanging flowers on the equipment as you can see in the photos below.

A number of years ago we at “The Monty” were involved in a similar ceremony also in Bangalore at the facilities of commercial heat treater HighTemp as you can see in the one photo below. The ceremony might appear rather odd to most North Americans but our feeling is that it is a very interesting custom and we enjoyed it.
