On this day we the HR Batch from Institute for technology and management had an industrial visit in one of the largest company engaged primarily in the business of textiles that’s Bombay dyeing’s which also belongs to Wadia group who’s mission is to achieve excellency in services and goodwill . Firstly we all were introduced by the security head of Bombay dyeing’s that’s Major Vivek who not only explained us about the workings of the entire plant but also ensured us about the basic safety measures and instructions to be implemented during our visit.
Then we came across to Mr. Milind who is currently working as an Administrator with Bombay dyeing’s. We first had introduction to the textile firm on how the raw materials are made and converted into finished goods in the CP (continuous polymerization) room which was led by Mr Ajay Kumar. He introduced us to PSF (Polyster stable fibre) which is a man made fibre. It is mainly classified as solid & hollow polyester stable fibre. It has some properties like conjugated, siliconized, silk and dry PSF. The next section which we all were not only waiting for it but also impatient to know more in detail about how a spinning beam works. I guess we all have known till now that it is the spinning section which left us all reluctant about it. ‘’A spinning beam runs at 280 degrees and it consists of 5700 holes which moves from downward at 8 meters per min. In this process the inter flow tube is connected for further process which is known as the take up process. It runs at a speed of 1400mt per min’’ says Mr Ashish Joshi- Deputy Manager
After having ourselves grilled up during the spinning section what we addressed next was the Cane traverser wherein the materials from the spinning section gets towed in the box with a speed of 1300-1400 per min. Last section was the drawline section which is also known as packing of goods and loading them in huge trucks. ‘’The goods were finished filament, followed by trimming, then mixed with cotton with a temperature of 200degree c. Everyday upto 1050 boxes gets dispatched per day with a production capacity of 450 on different balers such as 3B, 3A etc.’’ says Mr. Sanjay Butle- Production manager with Bombay dyeing’s. In this textile industry there are almost 156 management staff working the reason being is because the entire industry was piled up with technology and there was less man work required.
After all these process we had an enthusiastic spokesman who gave us an in-depth knowledge about how an HR performs their respective roles and functions in an organization. Such as Employee engagement, performance appraisal, training and development, admin and payroll etc.
