Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower –Steve Jobs

True to the leadership position it aspires, Elgi has through the decades maintained a technological edge in the air compressor market with incremental and breakthrough innovation, through incorporation of latest technologies in its products. Elgi provides an ideal environment for innovation with exceptional freedom and constant motivation to get the best out of each employee. Innovation is a part of the organizational culture at Elgi.

Innovative practices at Elgi go much beyond our products. Innovation is in the work culture we promote, the solutions we tailor for industries around the world and the services we offer our customers.

Elgi is known in the industry for providing custom-engineered solutions to meet our clients’ needs. The company collaborates with clients to understand their changing needs and designs solutions accordingly. Long-term partnering has been our key differentiating factor.

Technology is a driving force at Elgi. Elgi belongs to the league of the top five global players that possess the technological capability to design and manufacture oil-free screw air compressors. Our technology is focused not just on the compressor packages but as much on the airends, that form the heart of compressors. We are among the few global companies to design both the compressor package and the airend.

Design and Development

Elgi uses advanced tools in the product design and development processes. We move in tandem with the needs of a changing market and employ current technologies in product development and production. We follow our own Elgi Product Development Process (EPDP). The EPDP helps in cutting down production time by helping to develop products right-first-time in the time frame initially scoped out. Elgi also uses a PLM system to manage its product development.

Elgi has invested in advanced tools, such as state-of-the-art simulation software, for design and manufacturing. Simulation software helps in setting up virtual real-world environments where product designs can be tested prior to manufacturing. It lowers costs and reduces time-to-market by bringing down the number of physical prototypes before actual production.

Simulation software has helped our designers and engineers to innovate, test and develop newer concepts with better insights. It is being used for the design optimization of screw-profiles, shafts, bearings, gears etc

All designs at Elgi are done on 3D-CAD systems and designs, and simulated by in-house FEA and CFD teams. Noise and vibration teams have developed their own simulation software to help optimize compressors from a NVH perspective. Prototypes are built and tested at a dedicated proto workshop.
