TCS and GE join hands to reduce gas turbine manufacturing cost

TCS & GEIT services provider Tata Consultancy Services(TCS) said it developed a solution to reduce the manufacturing cost and time of gas turbines in collaboration with General Electricals (GE).

The digital solution along with GE’s operating system will analyze temperatures at various points on the metal turbine parts when they are assembled and cooled thereby allowing the operators to know when to perform the next operations and hence saving the waiting time between the operations, added the company.

During the turbine manufacturing process rotor stacking is a key process and needs extremely high levels of precision.

If the rotor wheels are stacked incorrectly due to differences in the surface temperature it will require reassembly thereby incurring heavy additional costs and two to three weeks of shipment delays.

The new digital solution provides automatic data collection of ambient room and rotor surface temperatures and measures unacceptable variations thereby notifying workers when the next operation may proceed and alerting workers to any non-uniformity in process.

Denzil Samuels, Head of Global Channels and Alliances, GE Digital said,”The TCS solution will enable significant cost and time savings in the rotor stacking process – and is one example of what can be built on the Predix platform.

Anupam Singhal, Vice President, Tata Consultancy Services said,”TCS teaming up with GE and Intel on this innovative solution will deliver the benefits of Industrial IoT in bringing certainty in complex manufacturing operations. This will also be a valuable addition to TCS Digital Store and GE’s Predix ecosystem.”
