Rajkot machine tools cluster


The industrial city of Rajkot hosts one of the most important clusters of machine tool manufacturers in India. There are about 400 machine tool and allied manufacturing units in this cluster. They are located mainly in areas such as Shapar, Aji, Bamanbore, Kothariya, Samrat, Atika and Metoda. Most of the units produce conventional machine tools; a few units produce modern machine tools such as CNC machines, vertical and horizontal machining centres (VMC/HMC), etc. The castings and forged machine parts required for machine tool manufacture are generally sourced from foundries, forging units, and component manufacturing units.
