Talbros Engineering Limited started making axle shafts in 1980. From humble beginnings the scale has moved to 3,000 axle shafts per day and crossed the level of 1 million shafts annually in 2008. Unlike other manufacturers who also make axle shafts, we only make axle shafts.
Conveniently located around 30 kms from the heart of New Delhi the facilities are spread across 150,000 square feet at two manufacturing locations in the state of Haryana. The factories are integrated and by themselves each is complete and stand-alone. All manufacturing facilities of forging, heat treatment, CNC turning, spline cutting, and induction hardening are available at both locations under one roof.
90% of all axle shafts made by Talbros are used by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) or Tier 1 suppliers. It is enough to let our customers say what they think of us through their PPM feedback.
Over the years Talbros has created a huge inventory bank of forging tooling, cutting tools, jigs and fixtures, so much so that new product sample development can be completed within 4-6 weeks, generally at no tooling cost to the customer.

Quality Policy / Processes
The Quality System at Talbros Axles is certified to be in conformance with the requirements of ISO / TS16949. But requirements aside we put forth the extra effort to exceed these standards much to the delight of our customers. Buyers / users of Talbros axles have the utmost confidence in knowing that every single one of our shafts is:
100% Hardness Checked - After induction hardening by using hardness testers located at each station.
100% Ultrasonically Tested -After the straightening process, post induction hardening, to ensure the absence of internal flaws in steel - not only on account of rolling at the steel mill, but also any that could possibly have been introduced by the forging or heat treatment processes.
100% Magnaflux Detection - After the grinding operation, in both linear and circular direction, for detection of any kind of surface defect even on the ground portion.
Such metallurgical testing is complemented and supported by a fully equipped laboratory having all facilities to check chemistry, grain size, inclusion rating, porosity, and hardenability amongst other relevant metallurgical controls.
Dimensionally, Talbros axles are machined to the highest OEM standards. This is ensured and supported by a round the year temperature and humidity controlled Standards Room, which has all the equipment to guarantee perfect fitment. It houses a CMM gauge that checks flange holes positioning, spline Go / No-Go gauges ensuring side gear fitment, jigs and fixtures, and surface finish testers all necessary in controlling correct fitment of bearing, seals, brake drums etc. All this equipment is calibrated fully in-house on a routine basis to ensure timely replacement of worn instruments and gauges.
