Online Training on Care for Machine Tool Spindles - Systematic Approach for Spindle Maintenance

13 to 14 August, 2020,
Maintenance of spindles in metal cutting or industrial machinery is a critical function of a maintenance engineer. Technicians maintaining them typically require special diagnostic tools and intense technical training. Often component deviations can be traced to faulty spindles. Spindle maintenance requires a thorough knowledge of bearing application, lubrication, assembly tools and techniques. Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on "Care for machine tool spindles-Systematic approach for spindle maintenance".

Online Training on Hydraulic System Development for Industrial Applications – A Practical Approach

17 to 21 August, 2020,
The course is structured from introduction to basics of Hydraulics systems. Hydraulics design, if not configured and implemented correctly, would result in poor performance in system reliability during their operation. Conceptualization w.r.t the actual requirement in terms of force, speed and safety is very essential during design. Selection of hydraulic elements and sizing, calculations for optimization, design of entire system is very vital in any mechanical industry. Assembly of hydraulic elements, hydraulic piping, machine interface and troubleshooting is a key requirement. Keeping this in view, IMTMA has designed the course on "Hydraulic System Development for Industrial Applications

Online Training on Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing in Design through Manufacturing

18 to 19 August, 2020,
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) system eliminates ambiguities in engineering drawings and brings out the designer's intent very clearly. It ensures seamless communication between design, engineering, manufacturing and quality teams across the entire organization enabling them to work in a concurrent engineering environment. Application of GD&T system helps to reduce the manufacturing and inspection costs drastically.Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a 2 day online training programme on "Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) in Design through Manufacturing"

Online Training on Towards Zero Defects in Welding Applications

20 to 21 August, 2020,
Welding is an essential manufacturing technology with its 360 deg and 3-dimesional applicability. This technology is needed in manufacturing a small automotive part to Satellites & Rockets going into space, as well for Submarines going deep underwater into the sea and practically in ever perceivable equipment for all industrial sectors. The applications of welding and its criticality varies from a primitive welding of a corroded automobile silencer to a highly advanced component such as a Refinery Cracker or of a Nuclear Plant part. Irrespective of the criticality of the welding, the aspect of quality issues is a common aspect – mainly that of inconsistency - arising while manufacturing.

Online Training on Powder Coating Technology - Process, Applications, Defects Analysis and Prevention

25 to 26 August, 2020,
In today’s manufacturing scenario, where shortage of raw material, power & increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day, ‘Powder coating application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. Lack of knowledge in powder coating technology leads to high rework and rejection rates. The future of Indian Industry (The post COVID-19 Opportunities), the demand for INDIAN products is expected to grow exponentially and to grab this global opportunity, educating and upgrading the existing workforce is going to be the need of an Hour. Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on Powder Coating Technology - Process, Applications, Defects Analysis and Prevention.

Online Training on Selection of Cutting Tools for CNC Machining Centre Applications (Milling and Hole Making Operations)

27 to 28 August, 2020,
Milling and hole making operations are an integral part of all metal cutting operations. While using a precision machine tool such as a CNC Machining centre for complex milling and hole making operations, selection of the right cutting tools for the operations is equally critical to produce a quality machined part. Selection of the right cutting tools can result in optimization of cycle time, reduce risks of errors in machining, manage tool costs better and result in production of a high quality part. Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organising an online training on Selection of Cutting Tools for CNC Machining Centre Applications (Milling and Hole Making Operations).
