Khole Sintering Solutions, established by Prakash Anant Khole, has been set up to offer support and advice to anyone looking to manufacture powder metallurgy components in India.
“In India there is great potential for the use of sintered parts in, for example, automotive applications” states Khole, “average sintered parts used in any vehicle manufactured in India is 2 to 3 Kgs in total, where as in some western countries the auto manufacturers are using around 15 to 16 Kgs sintered parts in a vehicle”.
“Currently in India most of the Auto manufacturers are trying to convert some of the forged parts to sintered parts. But there are only three or four companies who can produce such parts. Naturally there is an opportunity in this sector” continued Khole.
