Online Training on Effective Maintenance towards Zero Down Time (ZDT) - Electrical aspects of CNC Machines
30 November to 4 December, 2020,
CNC machines are real Mechatronic systems, having electrical and electronic circuits interacting with mechanical actuators / sub systems. Diagnostics and root cause analysis is an important aspect of maintenance, which is most often ignored. Often the roots of a mechanical problem is in the electronics area and that of an electronic problem lies elsewhere. Thorough understanding of the CNC machine circuit diagram, Ladder diagram and CNC parameters is needed to find and fix the root cause to minimize MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) and effective planning of PMBF(Preventive Maintenance Before Failure) towards zero down time. Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTM

Online Training on Defects Analysis and Troubleshooting in Painting Applications
21 to 22 December, 2020,
In today’s manufacturing scenario, where shortage of raw material, power & increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day, ‘Painting / Coating application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. While we are nearly at par with global standards in metal working, we definitely lack in finishing and painting operations. The stark difference is visible when it comes to exporting our goods. The root cause in painting defects is often attributed to either paint suppliers or equipment suppliers, which may not be actual cause. Hence a better understanding of the defect Analysis especially in painting / powder coating leads to reduced rework and lower rejection rates
