Hands-on Training on Industrial and Machine Automation for Digital Manufacturing

Date : 25 April to 6 June 2022

@ IMTMA Technology Centre, Bengaluru


Industrial & Machine Automation has become an integral part of all modern & digital manufacturing processes. This area is constantly getting upgraded along with the latest technological developments in the industry. Automation ensures increased productivity with improved product quality and reliability at a lower cost. In recent days, every piece of equipment and machinery are built with a higher level of intelligence to work in an automated mode to draw significant benefits. Optimization of cost, quality, reliability, safety, and delivery of any product is one of the key challenge in any product manufacturing. For all this to be highly effective, knowledge of Industrial automation and digital manufacturing is highly essential.


This hands-on training program aims to cover the working principle and application of industrial & machine automation, which is most ideal for Fresh Engineering Graduates / Diploma holders / Engineering students / fresh hires in an industry. This program is ideal for Electrical, Electronics, Mechatronics, Mechanical, and allied disciplines to work effectively from the day one. Increased use of automation in the manufacturing industry, could possibly enhance the need for trained engineers with adequate skills in Automation from design to execution.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an exclusive 6-weeks Hands-on training program on Industrial and Machine Automation for Digital Manufacturing at IMTMA Technology Centre, at BIEC campus, Bangalore for fresh engineers who wish to make their career in ever-evolving Industrial Automation sector.
