Taural India Spearheads Localized Aluminium Casting Solutions for Indian Railways

Taural India, a leading world-class integrated aluminium foundry, proudly announces its collaboration with Indian Railways, marking a significant milestone in the nation's journey towards self-reliance and technological advancement. The company provided aluminium casting solutions for the recently launched Amrit Bharat Express train in Ayodhya.

Taural India's indigenization drive has propelled the production of customized Aluminium Gear Cases for WAP5 – a class of Electric locomotives manufactured by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW), the flagship production unit of Indian Railways. This initiative not only successfully replaced the previously imported aluminium casting components from Germany but also enabled the delivery of the component at a 50% reduced speed. 

Bharat Gite, Managing Director and CEO of Taural India expressed enthusiasm about this significant milestone, stating, “Our association with Indian Railways is a testament to Taural India's commitment towards innovation, indigenization, and the 'Make in India' initiative. We take pride in providing cutting-edge aluminium casting solutions that meet global quality standards without compromising on efficiency or speed of production."

Green metals like aluminium produce fewer emissions and are energy efficient in their processing and applications, reducing the carbon footprint during their lifecycle. Furthermore, aluminium's high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, design flexibility, recyclability, and enhanced
energy efficiency makes it a popular choice for the Indian Railway sector.
