Auto parts manufacturers are absolutely indispensable for automobile manufacturers. This is because automobile industry is based upon the supply from auto parts manufacturers.
These auto parts manufacturers are also dependent on the automobile industry only. This is the reason that they are situated in the vicinity of automobile manufacturers. It reduces shipping cost and increases inventory control both for auto-part and automobile industry.
The motto of the auto-part manufacturer is to keep the price as low as possible to combat competition and provide spare-parts at throw-away prices. The timing for inventory delivery should improve and shipping cost should be lowered achievable only by keeping the inventory under strict control and establishing the manufacturing unit very near to the Company, being supplied to.
Auto parts manufacturers and automobile manufacturers are complementary to each other as both have to rely upon each other for want of and supply of material. But only those who have to get the best price in no-nonsense time must manufacture auto-components.
Auto-part manufacturers are
Worrying whether or not you were overcharged for your car repair is an awful feeling. There’s tons of advice on how to avoid getting ripped-off, but few discuss the actual car repair prices. We really need to look at the charges on a car repair estimate or auto repair invoice to determine if we’re paying too much.
The focus needs to shift from giving outdated and ineffective advice to addressing the “actual” and “specific” charges. Are they legitimate charges? Can they be justified by industry guidelines?
Now car repair estimates can be confusing. So let’s break it down to get a better idea if your auto repair shop is billing you appropriately.
First, a glossary of terms is in order, as the auto industry has a language of its own
Aftermarket Parts: parts not made by the manufacturer.
MSRP: Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price
OEM: Original Equipment Manufacturer. Manufacturer approved parts designed specifically for your vehicle.
TSBs: Technical Service Bulletins. Notes and instructions provided by the manufacturer for known and specific
Although the Indian auto sector may have been able to tide over the recessionary pressures owing to surge in auto sales, small-scale auto parts vendors in Kolkata are still to witness green shoots. Undoubtedly, recessionary pressures are ebbing, thereby providing cheer to the citys auto SME vendors but the ride is still far from being smooth for them.
Kolkata-based SME auto parts manufacturers and suppliers are still struggling to stay afloat and looking for ways that can help them recover their business losses suffered during the last financial year, due to the global economic slowdown. Not many city-based small auto components manufacturers foresee a complete turnaround before the beginning of the next financial year.
Worst over, but problems still persists
SMEs in Kolkatas auto parts sector expect a complete recovery not before March-April 2010, when hopes will be pinned on the annual budget with the expectation that the government will initiate series of measures to help the industry emerge from the crisis.
The worst is now over, but we are
Alloy Wheels are definitely in these days. Those bling-bling wheels you see on most vehicles today are all alloy wheels and they are gaining more fans and popularity everyday.
So what exactly are alloy wheels and how are they different from normal wheels?
Are alloy wheels better than normal wheels?
These are the types of questions I intend to answer in this article.
Alloy Wheels perform the same function in automobiles as the normal steel ones but there are certain added features in alloy wheels that make them different and arguably better.
Compared to wheels made of steel, alloy wheels are composed of aluminum or magnesium alloys making them stronger and durable, lighter in weight, better in performance and most importantly, stylish. These wheels are manufactured either by the process of casting or by forging of metal alloys.
Forged alloy wheels are lighter and much more durable than cast alloy wheels but they are a little hard on the pocket. Forged alloy wheels are usually the preferred
DURASOLID differential carrier bearing puller is a specialty tool that every automotive differential installer must have. The original as well as other branded differential bearings are quite expensive and often in short supply. Saving the same for reuse becomes quite important to save some money in these bad times.
Differential installers often face situations where after having set up the gears and replacing bearings they find that the shims under carrier bearings need to be changed to adjust the backlash. The conventional tools would end up in damaging the bearings or the seal surface and to save the same you have no choice but to live with the problem.
Now the installers dont need to compromise or be afraid of damaging the carrier bearing if they own a Durasolid carrier bearing puller kit as the clamshell design wont let the bearings damage while pulling them out and also save your expensive differential locker or carrier from damaging.
There were times when these differential carrier bearing pullers used to be
