Quality Management

Quality Management

GIC is ISO 9001:2000 certified and quality procedures are integrated into all areas and processes of production.

Statistical process control & various quality tools are extensively used for defect prevention. Our setup integrates the workflow under a single roof, covering everything in-house right from ideation to final delivery. Stringent checks throughout the process ensure faster turnaround with the desired quality, while also greatly facilitating customization.

Tool Design & Development

Tool Design & Development

Tool design and manufacturing forms an important aspect of GIC’s expertise. The tool room is equipped with EDM Wire cut machines of Japanese make, EDM small hole drilling machines, spark erosion machines, universal grinding machines and several other heavy duty, high precision machines to attain top notch quality tools and moulds.

Our experienced and talented team use cutting-edge technology like Solid Edge, Catia and Unigraphics for developing highly precise components of international style and quality.

Component Manufacturing

Component Manufacturing

Precision, speed and scalability, are characteristics that best define our technologically sophisticated component manufacturing facility.
GIC is an expert at manufacturing various injection moulded plastic and sheet metal components.
We’ve Installed a state-of-the-art component manufacturing facility equipped with Injection Moulding machines by international manufacturers like ARBURG and ENGEL. Auxiliaries such as Mould Temperature Controllers, Hot Air Dryers, Robotic Pick systems and Vacuum Loaders requiring minimum human intervention for its electronic automation products and customized products, have also been installed.

Product Assembly

Product Assembly

The assembly department is housed in an anti-static and dust free environment. Decked with a semi-automated production line, the assembly of a variety of products is done by highly skilled workers using an in-house designed software, hardware, test equipment, jigs and fixtures.
Automated Surface Mounting Technology (SMT) line is employed for manufacturing PCB. The SMT facility helps in minimising contamination and eliminates common defects like wrong polarity, dry solder, no solder and wrong component placement. This enhances the product quality, increases productivity and helps attain a cost effective production cycle with minimum lead-time in order execution.



The smart and ergonomic warehousing solution from Cardex has helped in the optimal use of space, thus ensuring that ever increasing storage needs are kept in check.
