CICU has been organizing various programs for the benefit of the industry and trade sectors of Punjab. Skill up-gradation of the Industrial employees/workers is one of the key agenda under the “Make In India” initiative by the Government & facilitated by Chamber. CICU has recognized its responsibility in this regard and has decided to launch One-day Training Program on “Excellence in Manufacturing through Metallurgy Advancements at CICU Complex, Focal Point Ludhiana.Pankaj Sharma, General Secretary, CICU in his welcome address said that there is a dire need for the up-gradation of the industry in terms of Metallurgy advancements in Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises. For Global Competition, achieving Excellence in Manufacturing through Metallurgy has become very important and plays a vital role. He further said that the participants will gain knowledge about Metallurgy Advancements used in Production/manufacturing, to pave the path towards various Metals used in the industry.
The interactive and thought-provoking sessions were conducted by Sh. N.K Khullar, who is B.E in (Metallurgical Engineering) from IIT, Roorkee with 45 years of experience in Automotive and Engineering industries like M/s Uniparts India Ltd., M/s ARB Bearing Ltd., M/s Sadhu Forgings Pvt. Ltd. and many other leading manufacturing industries. He is an expert in his field and now, independently running a METALLURGICAL TESTING LABORATORY at NOIDA-U.P. with the name of Cosmo Analytical Lab is a NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories) accredited lab in accordance to ISO/IEC: 17025.
He enlightened the participants about Basic principles of Ferrous Metals-Metallurgy, Heat treatment & processes
f) Induction Herdening etc.
2.) Mechanical Testing’s – Hardness, Tensile, Impact Testing etc. with Micro Structure-Analysis identifying specific needs for Metallurgy in the various manufacturing process, Heat Treatment Techniques used in the industry.The program was attended by more than 50 participants like Quality Control Engineers, Mechanical/Plant/Maintenance Engineers and Other Technical Specialists concerned with Metal & Heat Treatment Processes and services from different industrial sectors like auto parts, fasteners, Casting & Forging, bicycle components and machine tools etc. In the concluding remarks Sh. Pankaj Sharma said that the knowledge shared in the program will help the participants to reduce manufacturing cost i.e. scrap/rejection, rework & warranty claims, increase productivity, improve overall quality and resource utilization, reduce production lead time, compete in the current market and improve customer satisfaction resulting in an overall increase of profitability.
