Ac�on Con­struc�on Equip­ment Ltd. (ACE) is amongst the very few home-grown In­dian com­pa­nies, which, from very hum­ble be­gin­nings, now has one of the widest range of con­struc�on equip­ment in the in­dus­try.

elab­o­rates on the com­pany’s R&D ca­pa­bili�es, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, build­ing long-term client rela�on­ship, and their up­com­ing new prod­ucts at Excon 2017.

What im­pro­vi­sa­tion are you car­ry­ing out in your back­hoe load­ers and com­pactors?

For Back­hoe Load­ers and the Com­pactors, there will be struc­tural changes, bet­ter aes­thet­ics, larger cab­ins, and their work­ing speeds will be worked upon, and all other as­pects of the machines will be re­con­sid­ered for up­grad­ing where re­quired. We hope to launch this model early next year and it should also be ex­port-ready. We are see­ing a rea­son­able mar­ket for our prod­ucts out­side India at our prices.

As in our ex­ist­ing machines, the en­gine in the new model will be Kir­loskar 76 hp en­gine with a Car­raro trans­mis­sion and axle, TVS cylin­ders, oil con­trol valve, David Brown hy­draulic pump etc. These are world­class com­po­nents, and all the fab­ri­ca­tion will be done in-house for en­sur­ing per­fect­ness in weld­ing and struc­tural strength.

How tech­no­log­i­cally strong is ACE in the de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of its cranes?

we have de­vel­oped a 5-tons, and then 8, 10, 12, and 16-tons crane, all of which have been made in-house.

We are the only com­pany to man­u­fac­ture 12 Tons and 16 Tons Tower Cranes in India. We also make the big­gest Pick & Carry Crane in India which is of 25 Tons.

As re­gards telem­at­ics and di­ag­nos­tics, we have been do­ing some­thing sim­i­lar for the past 3-4 years for our big fleet own­ers of cranes, wherein along with our safety in­di­ca­tion de­vices, our other safety fea­tures are con­trolled through an elec­tronic de­vice. There is an in-built GPS along with telem­at­ics for ma­chine di­ag­nos­tics on en­gine and fuel and other per­for­mance pa­ram­e­ters. We are do­ing this on a case to case ba­sis and not to all our equip­ment be­cause telem­at­ics makes sense for fleet own­ers. How­ever, it is very easy to ex­tend the sys­tem to other machines.

What kind of in­te­grated ser­vices does ACE pro­vide to its cus­tomers?
