What is your range of products?

We have two product lines: RETAIL which consist of Water tanks, Vermicompost bins, Dustbins, Septic Tanks, Barrels etc and INDUSTRIAL which consists of custom moulded parts viz: fuel tanks, water tanks, engine cells, pallets etc. We service Automotive, Pharmaceutical and marine segments.

How safe are the plastic water tanks for preserving drinking water ?

SHAKTI-water tanks are very safe for preserving drinking water. Our tanks are double layered. Outer layer of our tanks is black which protects the tank from harmful Ultra Violet sunrays; for inner white layer a food grade whitener Titanium Di Oxide is used, this is safe for your family. However care must be taken not to store water in plastic tanks for long periods as the water may become stale.

What is threaded lid? How different it is from other traditional lids ?

Our threaded lids prevent lizards, insects from entering the tank and mosquitoes breeding in the tank. A threaded lid does not require screws and hinges and hence eliminates any possibility of rusting. A threaded lid ensures the tank is air tight, therefore it is important to have a mosquito proof vent on the top of the tank, especially when using a pump.

What do you mean by “SHAKTI-Superior by Design”?

With The Roto-moulding Process, value is added to a product through the added advantage of being able to design a product with better features. e.g. We converted a metal part to plastic. There was a hose pipe connecting the tank to the filling point outside. We redesigned the tank to include a connection to the outside, thus increasing volume of tank and also eliminating hose pipe, hose clip etc.

What are the benefits of working with GMI Zarhak Moulders, makers of the SHAKTI brand of products?

GMI Zarhak Moulders can work with our customers from concept (Early Vendor Involvement) or from the design stage. This initial involvement saves time & costs as all factors connected to a roto part are addressed. We can accept drawings in any format, i.e. IGES or DXF files. Once we get the drawings, our engineering team will give feedback to ensure the design is roto-mouldable. We can offer our services to make the tools and subsequently mould the part. In short the SHAKTI advantage is full service, design to production.

What support are you getting from the Joint Venture with Groupe Maillard Industrie, France?

We had a JV with GMI in 2004 to bring high-end technology to India. GMI provides us technical support based on their experience. We also have access to their design facilities.

How are Roto Moulded products are different ?

Advantages:
• Roto-molding results in seamless parts with almost uniform wall thickness.
• The corners are thicker than the plain surfaces thus making the part structurally stronger than a part normally produced from viz. blow moulding.
• Rotomoulding does not use pressure inside the mould making the parts stress free, stronger and crack resistant.
• Tooling costs are lower as minor changes can easily be made to existing moulds.
• Rotomoulding also offers superb flexibility as the tools do not have to handle pressure making the tools simpler than injection moulding tools.
• Fewer steps to get to your finished product as complex contours, metal inserts, flanges, and molded-in threads can be designed into the walls.
• Rotomoulded plastic products are easy to handle and are cost effective to ship due to lighter weight than metal or fiberglass.
Drawbacks:
• The tolerances are higher when compared to other processes, generally in the region of +1%.
• Use of dual colours in one mould is not possible.

What is the maximum temperature a Roto Moulding part can stand?

It will depend upon the material used for the process. The factors that will have an impact on the product are the time the part is subjected to that particular temperature and the load that’s been applied. Normally polyethylene is suitable up to about 60°C and polypropylene around 100°C.

What after sale services will be provided by company?

We are always ready to assist our customers; both in the installation process of our products or if there is any complaint. Our technicians are always there to offer assistance if required. If installed properly, tanks have no problems for years. Our range of products is strong and durable. To safe guard the interests of our customers we issue Bills for all products and also instructions for proper installation.

What are Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)?

Good Manufacturing Practices: Giving the best quality products to our customers is our first priority. Our Good Manufacturing Practices ensures timely delivery of a quality product at the right place and at the right price after elimination of waste, conforming to customer’s requirements. We encourage a culture of continuous improvement by practicing Kaizen, 5S, TPM & QAP etc.

How long does it normally take to produce a custom built product?

Generally the lead time for making a new mould is approximately 6-8 weeks from the date of receipt of approved technical drawings with detailed specifications subject to no changes. Consider a week thereafter for the first sample to be produced for customer's approval. If approved and no changes we can safely assume a period of ten weeks from the date the design is approved.
