Effective utilization of Machining Centres for reduction in cycle time, competitive production costs, improved quality, performance and longevity of machines, is an important role in enhancing productivity especially in large volume production. In the highly competitive market scenario, customers determine the price of a product and entrepreneurs need to continuously fine tune the costs to realize profits. Machine utilization has a major impact in reducing the manufacturing cost of components. For increasing machine on time and improving productivity requires adopting best machining practices.Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising an online

How to reduce Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)

16 to 17 September, 2021,
Cost of Poor Quality can make an organization lose 25% to 35% of sales amount due to variety of reasons like warranty, compliant servicing, scraps, redesign, resources and capacity loss due to rework and reprocessing, free replacement delivery, loss of management time, loss of orders, loss of interest in delayed payments and loss of customers. Cost is inversely proportional to Poor Quality. A quality complaint can lead to multiple ripple effects that can impact 10 X or more than just the replacement cost due to above reasons. Hence, it is the responsibility for all professionals in every organization to identify, measure, analyse, reduce and prevent poor quality from being generated in every

Advance concepts in GD&T

21 to 23 September, 2021,
In today’s scenario, Design, Manufacturing and Inspection personnel working on engineering parts and assemblies are required to be familiar with the basics of GD&T. In addition, there is a need for engineers to have knowledge of advanced concepts provided in ASME standards which results in realizing the benefits of GD&T - interchangeability, reduction of manufacturing and Inspection costs, elimination of rework etc. Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on 'Advanced GD&T'

Automation and I4.0 in Welding

21 to 22 September, 2021,
With many variables affecting the productivity and quality, Welding still remains more of an art than science. Deskilling and getting defect & distortion free welding remains a big challenge. This feature also affects the efficacy of deploying “Robotic Automation” where the Controls remain blind to the welding process and just do blind execution of trajectory programmed. In fact, real time sensing of welding variables and adaptive control of automation is a dire need. Realization of adaptive welding automation can be easily linked to larger umbrella of Industry 4.0 for Welding Process and Equipment since the welding equipment is already coming with many Industry 4.0 features

Surface Plating and Protection Technology

23 to 24 September, 2021,
In today’s manufacturing scenario, shortage of raw material & power, meeting quality with consistency in quality norms and increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day. Besides these business challenges, surface finish, an important manufacturing process contributes significantly to the costs. During finishing of parts, Surface plating techniques such as ‘Electroplating, application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. Lack of knowledge in Surface plating and protection technology leads to high rework and rejection rates in-house & as well as from outside vendors. Hence it is important to follow the right techniques to achieve surface finish of acce

Value Engineering & Value Analysis (VA/VE)

27 to 29 September, 2021,
Value Engineering is a proven Technique for cost reduction of products.  This is very essential for the company to remain competitive. Systematic analysis of the functions and its Value to remove redundant functions and features are addressed in Value Engineering. Value engineering (VE) and Value analysis (VA), with core methodology being same for both, differs only in the point of application phases of product life cycle. Keeping this in view, IMTMA is conducting a detailed training program on Value engineering to enhance competitiveness of Industry.

Die Design and Die Engineering for Automotive Sheet Metal Components

27 September to 1 October, 2021,
The automotive industry uses a large number of Dies to produce sheet metal parts for an automobile body shell. Hence it is important for Part and manufacturing process designers and planners to understand the entire process of Die design, Die Design standards, and best practices to ensure sustained Defect Free Production of Parts, while meeting the economy and timeliness targets. A well planned Die Design & Die engineering process is detrimental on the product quality, operating economics and sheet metal part productivity in a mass manufacturing organization. Keeping this in mind, IMTMA is organizing a training program on Die design & Die engineering.
