Sekisui DLJM inaugurates Greenfield plant in Chennai on May 8, 2015.

Location

Sekisui DLJM Molding Private Limited (SDMPL), the joint venture company between Dipty Lal Judge Mal Pvt Ltd in India and Sekisui Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan today inaugurated its Greenfield plant in Chennai. Build at an investment of Rs 30 crore to support India Yamaha Motor, this is the third plant of SDMPL and is located at the vehicle maker’s vendor park.

Location

The plant was inaugurated by Takashi Terabayashi, Managing Director ?India Yamaha Motor Private Limited along with officials from SDMPL.

The CEO of SDMPL, Tadahiko Yoshioka said the plant has been constructed in a 15,000 square meters plot with a built up area covering half the size of the plot. At present the company has installed nine moulding machines and the constructed space can accommodate a total of 20 machines. With the space available the company can enhance capacity by four folds of the current volumes.

Location

Currently the company supplies around 20 parts to the vehicle manufacturers for its motorcycles and scooter models. Gradually it will increase the part numbers to 60. Our capacity ramp up is planed based on India Yamaha, he said.

At present India Yamaha makes around 400 vehicle per day and it hopes increase volumes soon. Alongside SDMPL will also match its supplies, he said. The parts supplied by SDMPL are painted by India Yamaha, as the vehicle manufacturer has spare painting capacity. Once the OEM increase vehicle production capacity, SDMPL will have a chance to supply painted plastic parts. We are planning to infuse additional funds and the total investments will touch Rs 100 crore in Chennai plant in the next three years. This will be for commissioning additional moulding machines and paint shop,? he said.

SDMPL’s Greater Noida plant supplies painted plastic parts with some value addition like adding decals and some other smaller components. Currently about 50 percent of the plastic parts requirements are supported by SDMPL. Interestingly, Sekisui Techno Molding Co., Ltd. supports 30 percent of Yamaha’s requirement in Japan.

Both Greater Noida and Tapukara plants of SDMPL have integrated facilities to support India Yamaha, HMSI, Suzuki and Denso (Cockpit module supplier to Honda Cars India) in fully finished condition. Going forward SDMPL plans to expand its product and client portfolios as well. “At present we are in talks with few customers in passenger car segment. In future; we hope to look at supplying to commercial vehicle segment also," he said.

Sekisui DLJM to set up plant near Chennai article published

Location

Injection moulding parts major Sekisui DLJM is setting up its third plant near Chennai to support its Japanese twowheeler and four-wheeler manufacturers in Tamil Nadu. Currently the company has two manufacturing facilities each in Greater Noida and Tapukara in Rajasthan. Sekisui DLJM supplies around 150 components to India Yamaha Motors (IYM) and seven components to Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI). The Chennai plant will commence its operation by October 2014.

Sekisui DLJM Molding is a joint venture company between Dupty Lal Judge Mal Pvt Ltd in India and Sekisui Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan, and is operated by Sekisui Techno Molding Co Ltd. Sekisui Techno Molding currently supplies to major companies like Toyota, Daihatsu, Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki. Apart from automotive components, the company also manufactures plastic modules for rain water harvesting tank, which is a new technology introduced in India.

We will be investing around Rs 30 crore for establishing initial production and anticipate that the Chennai facility will employ approximately 120 people when in full operation,?Tadahiko Yoshioka, Head, Sekisui DLJM. In addition to injection moulding, Sekisui DLJM will also have the painting process at its state-of-the-art paint shop with pre-treatment line, in the upcoming plant. On lightweighting he said there are several ways to make the part lighter by changing the design, process and metal replacement. For design change, we normally review the design with CAE analysis, to check if the new design is feasible in terms of function and strength.

Part weight can be reduced by process technology like gas injection or foaming injection moulding. We already have gas injection moulding, but in case of foaming injection, the challenge lies in coreback system using all-electric injection machines, that requires significant investments. Considering this initial investment, application and volume of business must be carefully planned to implement this technology. Currently Sekisui Techno
Molding in Japan is already applying this technology to parts for four-wheeler. Depending on the demand in India, Sekisui DLJM Molding can bring the same technology from Japan,?Yoshioka said.

The component manufacturer is also capable of producing metal replacement parts in exteriors and engine surrounding parts and currently offer seat handle, guide stopper, and engine related parts. In case of seat handle part, the company has a flexibility to combine metal replacement technology with gas injection process technology. The challenge of metal replacement lies on how to choose composite material and to design the part, to optimise the balance among design shape, function, and cost.

Yoshioka opines that replacing metals with engineering plastics may not be the only solution to reduce cost, but, definitely, we can reduce weight and cost, while having great design freedom. In case of aluminium die-casting part, several process steps are needed including
melting, die-casting, sand blasting, finishing, and painting. But injection molded parts require simple injection molding process with constant quality and shorter processing time,?he said.

Sekisui DLJM supplies one crore parts to IYM and four million parts to HMSI. In the year 2013 the company has recorded a turnover of Rs 100 crore and in the current year, it is expecting more than 30 percent growth. ACI
