Heavy Engineering
For many years, the heavy engineering industry focused solely on functionality; cost was not a major influencing factor. With changing times, cost optimization has become a major driver for the industry along with the following:
Sustenance:
The longer the productive lifespan of equipments, the better their ROI. Heavy equipment can be reengineering, value engineered and reverse engineered to increase their lifespan.
Safety and Environment Friendliness:
Green designs and enhanced safety features are rapidly changing from good-to-have features to must-have prerequisites. These pressures are amplified by changing statutory regulations and increasing user awareness.
Low maintenance costs:
There is a growing need for designing equipment that need lesser maintenance, have lower down-time and can work economically even in rugged conditions. This can be made possible by use of alternate materials and adoption of new technologies.
