Precision Manufacturing Systems complex (PMSC), L&T Defence, Coimbatore
The Precision Manufacturing Systems Complex (PMSC) was created in 2010 to cater to the exacting and growing demands of precision products in the Defence Aerospace sector. The Facility addresses needs of the customers for Missiles, UAV’s, Aero-Structures and Space related subsystems.
The Facility is spread across 44 acres and houses 5 shops of 4000 m2 each, and an additional Surface Technology shop & ST shop of 3000 m2. The Facility’s office block of 2000 m2 is a Platinum rated Green Building.
The facility contains the following state-of-the-art shops:
The Precision shops enable us to manufacture Precision Machined components, fabricate Missiles & Aerospace components, and perform validation tests for electro-mechanical items. The two Heavy Precision shops assist in Heavy Fabrication, Heat Treatment and testing of Motor Casings for Space Launch Vehicles.
The Composite & Aero-structure Assembly shop is used to build Composite Airframes, Light Alloy Structures and Heat Shields for Missile & Space Launch Vehicles, Aero-structures including Wings for Fighter Aircraft, as well as Airframes for Hypersonic Vehicles.
The facility complies with ILDC norms specified by the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The facility operates on a unique model called “The PMSC Production System”, which combines philosophies from Theory Of Constraints (TOC), LEAN Manufacturing, and 6-Sigma. Using a Flow & Inventory management software called “Symphony”, the facility has demonstrated speedy conversion of ‘Projects to Products’.
The Facility executes orders from domestic customers such as DRDL, ISRO, HAL, BDL, BrahMos, BARC, NPCIL as well as overseas customers like Rafael-Israel, IAI-Israel, MBDA-France, MBDA-UK for different Missile sections, Satellite Sub-systems and Aero-structures.
