Rehaan,

Nice pictures man !

I liked the ITW stall pictures, being the company which gave my first break in my professional life.

Default Indian Machine Tools

Indian Machine tools had on display some equipment for testing fuel-injectors.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2804.jpg

Basically its a machine similar to a lathe, which is connected to a pump (rotary pump in this case), which forces coloured liquid through the injectors.

The liquid then collects in individual test-tubes where the exact amount that passed through each injector can be measured.

This is a linear pump

Default Gibraltar

Gibraltar makes air-springs used in busses and trucks, though at the moment in India, busses are their main business (eg. volvo) - but typically this technology gets used in commercial applications before making its way to the trucks, which eventually overtake the busses.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2861.jpg

The air-spring consists of a top and bottom metal cap, and a thick rubber bellow (the actual air-spring) between them.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2864.jpg

There is a inlet at the top and the air-spring is typically filled to about 4-bar of pressure (ie 58psi).
The bursting pressure of the bellow is closer to 22bar (320psi)

Default Wipro

Wipro develops the software for many automobile applications.

One of them is instrument clusters.

Shown below is the instrument cluster from the Ferrari California - which uses the Wipro's solutions.

Default Dentmasters

If i'm not mistken, Dentmasters is the name of the Indian company that uses equipment from this particular manufacturer.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2875.jpg

This is a plastic staple machine, to be used when your bumper gets a cut in it.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2874.jpg
Basically the yellow device heats up the staple, which is then pressed into the bumper (as can be seen), holding each side of the cut together.
The metal pins sticking out are then cut off, and the bumper is then finished and painted.

This is a pretty cool device for "pulling out" dents.
The tip is basically a spot-welder - you touch it to the metal and an electric current passes through it for a split second, welding the point to the body panel.
After that, the squeeze-grip (left hand) can be used to slowly pull the dent out. This gives more control than a suction device.
Twist the top handle to release the welded point from the bodywork.

(Bottom right of the frame is the grounding for the welder)

Some sort of splined shafts -- any idea what these are used for?
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2774.jpg

They look like they would be a neat design for a flashlight.

Axle transmission in trucks. The long spline is for the flexibility when the axles moves.

Seat manufacturers in the Germany stall.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2865.jpg


I really loved the look of these bare seats - the way they are manufactured and the amount of little details in them is evident in this form.

The electic motors of the seats were connected to buttons on the display and you could move the seat (electric recline on the one shown below)
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2867.jpg


Heres a close-up of the motor. Fairly small right?
Probably a worm gear driving a small gearset in there...
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2866.jpg


They even had a seat from the new E-Class on display.
This one is from the i30

Default Freescale Semiconductors

Okay here is a really cool one!

Moreso for the presentation and demonstration kits than the product itself.

Dashboard cluster showing the LCD screens and dials
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2812.jpg


They had these really cool portable suitcases for demoing control systems for small engines
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2814.jpg

Here you could see all the essential components that are part of the control system, as well as have the ability to tweak values like the air intake temperature or whether the kickstand is up or down.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2815.jpg

Another similar demo-in-a-suitcase was this one - for controlling all the lights on a vehicle, as well as central locking actuators (those gun shaped black things) etc.
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2816.jpg

Pressing the buttons on the keypad toggle the lights.
The three black squares on the big circuitboard on the left are the substitutes for mechanical relays. (Relays take up space and add an increased failure probability to an electrical system, since they have moving parts).
Component & Equipment Manufacturers at Auto Expo 2010-img_2818.jpg

Each square chip can replace 4 relays - so in essence this board can handle the job of 12 relays.

I'm not 100% sure - but i bet it also handles functions like interior light dimming, follow-me-home headlights etc, which traditional relays and switches wouldn't be set up to do.



As Ported_Head mentioned - these travelling demos would be a great teaching tool at engineering colleges etc - Freescale should consider doing short visits, as it will be good for practical learning, as well as educating the future engineers about their brand!
