Sri Akila Castings iron foundry is a family owned business that has operated out of the Thiru. Vi. Ka industial hub in Chennai since 1974.
The foundry is able to produce 2400 metric tons of iron cast in a year. A workforce of 85 employees oversees the production, control, inspection and testing of the iron. At this scale, the melting and casting of metal is a highly measured and controlled procedure. The furnaces require a constant power supply in order to maintain the standard temperatures necessary to melt iron in large quantities. A power failure would result in production being stalled, materials wasted and equipment damaged.
To expand the business and secure reliability within their processes, Sri Akila Castings partnered with Perkins’ GOEM, Supernova – to supply diesel powered generator set equipped with the Perkins 4008TAG2A for standby power generation.
Sri Akila Castings rely on the Perkins® 4008TAG2A for a constant source of electrical energy, which is critical to the castings process.
