Samsung Engineering is engaged by Ruwais Fertilizer Industries (FERTIL), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, to develop the new fertilizer plant. To deliver an integrated process control system for FERTIL-2, a new fertilizer plant being built near Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, Samsung selected  Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager to fully automate the facility and increase output for ammonia and urea used in fertilizer production by up to 50%.

Productivity Improvement in Plastic Injection Moulding at Gmax Auto Ltd., India


Yudo Hot Runner India has designed, developed and installed automatic production lines for the Bawal (NCR Area) based Gmax Auto Ltd, which supplies high-end solution to Hero Group for all plastics parts for its two wheelers. This new plant solution is designed to increase productivity and reduce the running cost of the plant in terms of electric power consumption, manpower reduction through automated lines and decreased use of space.

Some of the key highlights of this plant are:

Automatic production lines for the plastic parts
Operator free machines, no operator is required on the machine
Redeced Space usage
Energy-efficient electric injection machines
Automatic takeout robots: High speed, high efficiency, collision-free robot
Specially designed chiller using special refrigerant. Latest technology used in pipe line to arrest temperature drop. It saves more than 30% electric power
Delicately designed heating and cooling units to ensure perfect quality
Mass storage silos with load cell to handle raw material efficiently and minimum handling with minimum man power; high efficient thrust loading; and easy access of the stored resin
Matrix based automatic centralised feeding system with SS304 piping to ensure to meet all the requirement of different machines
Efficient drying to ensure quality and dosing unit to ensure correct feeding and mixing
PC base supervisions installed for feeding system and chiller
High speed robots integrates with all machines to ensure optimum cycle time
Specially designed conveyors to control the movement of finished goods
Traffic controlled conveyors to ensure smooth movement of all products


Yudo together with Gmax team  designed the plant. Using the new plant, Gmax is producing approximately 30% more parts with same number of machines compared to other plants in India with very less manpower and also it is saving 30% in electric power cost.
