M/s K&K Auto P. Ltd. Hosur (Near Bangalore, India), is an ancillary unit of TVS automobiles, manufacturing brake shoes for two wheelers. On their various types of grinders they were using eleven 3 HP dust collectors from one of our competitors with least amount of satisfaction. The reasons for unsatisfactory performance were found to be two fold :
We offered 0.5 HP dust collectors (SANTONI DC-200) in place of 3HP dust collectors and advised them on the design of suction hoods and the customer, being cautious, purchased one machine to begin with. When the performance was found to be satisfactory he gradually changed all the eleven old dust collectors with SANTONI dust collectors - saving over Rs. 200,000 (USD 4,500/-) in power bills alone per year as a bonus with the higher performance as the main benefit.
