Value addition and innovations

One of the significant reasons for the growth of the company has been its approach to bring out technically superior products for its customers, like IR. The company has developed its solutions for forged hinges and pans for the bottom discharge wagons; this is an area where IR has faced constant operations and maintenance problems on the door opening mechanism of these wagons.

A major thrust has been on added value for standard products many of which are normally cast components. Of particular interest are the substitution of parts for the IR standard W1713070 centre couplers, like connector and  lock, that have been successf ully developed. The forgings have a lower cost and will have longer service reliability.

Wagon Industry

Wagon industry suffers regularly duet° un-predictahility of the Wagon orders coupled with the curtailment of free supply items like draft gear, couplers, bearings, steel, and axles by IR. These changes have made wagon production costlier. This has made it highly indispensable for railway wagon component manufacturers like us to deliver quality components, meeting all the desired IR safety standards at a cost competitive price to the wagon manufacturing industry, o of our main business segments. However, considerne ing the evolving business cenario. Lalbaba is gearing up to meet the customer requirements. backed by the long-drawn expertise in components manuf acturing, while simultaneously looking to tap newer business opportunities in the IR rolling stocks sector.
