Industrial Visit to “Sansera Engineering Pvt Ltd.”, Jigani, Bengaluru

On 11th August 2018, the “operations” students of SJIM had visited Sansera Engineering Pvt. Ltd. We assembled in college at 8:45 am and then proceeded to Sansera Engineering,Plant 7 in a bus. We reached there at 10:30 am and were welcomed by Mr. Vidyadhar J (Head, Business Development Department, Sansera Engineering Pvt. Ltd.) and his team. Sansera has a comprehensive product and technology portfolio that focuses on high precision forgings and machining of automotives as well as aerospace components. They have 14 manufacturing plants in India, and recently acquired their first overseas plant at Sweden. Mr. Vidyadhar then gave us an overview about Sansera. The session started with Mr. Vidyadhar telling us that it takes all the departments of the organization to work in tandem with each other to make an industry successful, and to always have an edge over the other players in the industry. At Sansera, high quality and innovation is what has given them the edge over the other players in the industry. They have many in-house activities to ensure quality is not compromised on. They have 38 product families and supply to some of the biggest domestic and international automotive companies. At Sansera, they strongly believe in giving back to the society and have various CSR programs like people & education, healthcare & environment that they identify and then enable their employees to fulfill those needs.

After the session with Mr. Vidyadhar, we were given safety equipment and then divided into batches of three. Each batch was then taken for a brief tour to the machining and forging floors of the unit. At the forging department we saw the process of how a piece of steel was converted into a connecting rod through forging of the metal at high temperatures. Then those connector rods were further worked on in the machining department as per certain customer specifications. It was an insightful experience which provide us an understanding regarding internal working of an industrial unit. A special thanks to Mr. Vidyadhar for giving us this opportunity & Prof. V.J. Lawrence for facilitating & coordinating the visit.
