2 DAY TEACHERS CAMP ON CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES IN MATERIALS ENGINEERING
Background & Objectives of this programme are as below:
Casting is the oldest manufacturing process and has inherent advantages of design flexibility, high production rate and ability to produce large & complex shapes. Challenges to Indian Metal Casting Industries are igh cost of technology (Modern equipments), cost of energy and environmental hazards. The focus is more on Quality (not on the Quantity), right at first & every time, waste reduction (improving the productivity), defect prevention (not on defect rectification) and Reduction in lead time (design & produce). Due to globalization, Indian foundry must understand changing global scenario, new challenges and grab new opportunities.
This course introduces the process of metal casting and provides a broad picture of casting production from designer’s perspective. It illustrates the technology, complexity involved, types of castings, casting design, process selection,methoding, casting tools & equipment’s & quality assurance and key safety and environmental regulations & competitiveness. A detailed coverage of iron melting, solidifications & related processes, metallurgy of casting process & product and identifying casting defects & remedies will be discussed. Characterisation & properties of iron & aluminium alloys and their general applications along with decision-making process will be discussed.
