Design for Additive Manufacturing

1 June to 11 July, 2020,
3D printers are used to make three-dimensional objects and entities by printing. This process is also called an additive manufacturing process. In these printers, consecutive films and layers of a particular material are laid down under computer control. The objects that are created in these printers can be of many shapes, sizes or geometry. The printers successively set down the material onto a powder bed that has inkjet printer heads attached to it. Although they are generally referred to as 3D printers or 3D printing machines, technical standards refer to these devices as the additive manufacturing process

Online Training on How to Improve OEE and Achieve Manufacturing Excellence

7 July, 2020,
Production and productivity measurement on the shop floor has been done traditionally through log books, excel worksheets and reflects data as a historical record. Companies have their own methods at arriving at productivity. Overall Equipment Effectiveness or OEE is a standardised metric to measure productivity. Realtime measurement of OEE will result in quick and accurate decision making. In today’s VUCA world immediate analysis and decisions need to be made based on real time data. This requires an automated productivity monitoring and control system as companies move towards Industry 4.0. This seminar discusses the principles behind productivity measurement through OEE.

Online Training on Engineering Materials and their selection - Key to Successful Design

8 July, 2020,
Engineering design depends on materials that are shaped, joined and ?nished by processes. Design requirements de?ne the performance required of the materials, expressed as target values for certain design-limiting properties. Perhaps one of the most important tasks that an engineer may be called upon to perform is that of materials selection with regard to component design. Inappropriate or improper decisions can be disastrous from both economic and safety perspectives. Therefore, it is essential that the engineers become familiar with and versed in the procedures and protocols that are normally employed in this process. Understanding materials, their properties and behaviour is fundamental

Online Training on Essentials of Process Planning for Machined Parts

10 to 11 July, 2020,
Process planning has high impact on Production Cost and Quality of a component.A Process Plan is a sequence of operations to produce a component as per dimensional and quality parameters specified in a drawing. An effective process plan shall often foresee and mitigate challenges in manufacturing of a component – in the planning stage itself. It minimises delays in New Component Development. Process Planning is a complex process influenced by raw material input condition, type of machines, quality parameters, production volume, competence of operators and many more. Similarly, a process planner should have adequate knowledge about Materials, Machines, Work holding, Cutting Tools, Process

Online Live Training on Programming & Operation of CMM Machine - A Shop floor Practice

17 July, 2020,
A coordinate measuring machine is a 3D device for measuring the physical geometrical characteristics of an object. This machine may be manually controlled by an operator or it may be computer controlled. Measurements are defined by a probe attached to the third moving axis of this machine. Probes may be mechanical, optical, laser, or white light, amongst others. A machine which takes readings in six degrees of freedom and displays these readings in mathematical form is known as a CMM. This is a high accurate machine which is used to measure the three dimensional work pieces.

24 July, 2020,
Dimensional metrology is the science of measurement to quantify the size of the objects and help to decide whether the manufactured part is accepted or rejected as per the drawing and tolerance. Even though the person is able to take the reading, the measuring error may happen due to the improper handling of the instruments. So one must be good in selection of the right instrument, handling and reading the measurement.
