FEIN Power Tools India is planning to start FEIN Tech Institute as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme. This institute will train the economically disadvantaged and deserving students in power tool technologies and equip them with vocational skills for employment. A separate CSR wing called “FEIN TOUCH” will be launched soon to support these activities. The company is also planning to launch FEIN AccuTec screwdriver with 60Nm torque for heavy duty application. Currently, it has a screw connection range in between 0.5 to 30Nm and the new tool is expected to be in the market by early 2015.

DSC01520 copyDuring the second edition of Fein Power Tools Auto Forum in Chennai, Ameer Munaff, Managing Director of FEIN India said, “India has a large percentage of youth who have not been able to complete their formal education and also lack the required vocational skills to be gainfully employed and this FEIN certified programme can help in filling this void and make them eligible for employment. This institution will further train the students on the latest technologies that are available in the market.”

The Auto Forum held in Chennai recently saw more participants from the components manufacturers and OEMs. After the success of the first edition that was held in Pune in 2013, the company hosted the event in Chennai to enlighten the industry about the latest technology and its products. The one-day programme highlighted fastening technology, importance and benefits of torque, Cmk/Cpk value in shut-off screw drivers, lithium-ion battery technology and features, and benefits and advantages of the EC motor. These topics were addressed by Marcus Mörchen and Thomas Kaschowitz (Business Heads and Global Key Accounts – Automotive Business) of C&E FEIN GmbH, Germany. The event also had live demos and hands-on practical sessions of FEIN tools which are exclusively developed for applications in the automotive industry.

Commenting on the event Kaschowitz said, “The main motive was to create awareness to the automotive experts in India about the precision that FEIN has been delivering since 1867 and we have achieved it.” The forum was designed and customised for the automotive experts. It also provided the much needed and sought after chance to meet and interact with experts and professional peers to know the emerging trends and to get a professional edge in the constantly innovating world of the automotive industry.

The event was attended by key representatives from Hyundai, Renault Nissan, Mahindra & Mahindra, Hindustan Motors, Ford, BMW, Daimler, Ashok Leyland, John Deere, Same Deutz-Fahr, Caterpillar, Royal Enfield and many other automotive companies. Talking about the platform, the participants echoed that, “This forum is the best way to connect with other like-minded people and share ideas and methods for mutual growth. This is what makes this platform unique and the reason behind our visit.”

Munaff said, “The huge success and interest from the auto industry for this forum has created an urge to organise the third edition to create awareness about precision in automotives and make this forum a regular annual feat. We are planning to take the Auto Forum to the next level wherein we will conduct more Certified Courses in Automotive Technology as a curriculum, which will empower the people seeking employment in the automotive industry.”

Kaschowitz explained on how the automotive industry completely thrives on precision in detail with the classification of risks and errors arising from incomplete provision or failing to maintain the recommended specifications. Mörchen feels that “the main reason that kept the participants hooked for the entire day was the right balance of theory and hands-on sessions carefully timed so that the information from the theory sessions was strongly registered in the minds of the participants after the practical session.”
