Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) refers to a set of technologies that build 3D objects by adding materials layer-upon-layer of different kinds whether metal, concrete or plastic. Using 3D modeling software and machine equipment and layering material, the AM equipment reads in data from the CAD file and adds successive layers to fabricate a 3D object. AM hence includes a combination of Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping (RP), layered manufacturing and additive fabrication. AM adoption rate is increasing in

Demolition & Breaking Equipment – A Study

In India, the concept of demolition has gained popularity in the last 10 to 15 years generally in metro cities where availability of land is less, especially in congested and populated areas where old building or structures are demolished or destructed to develop new buildings to get extra height or spread the present construction and get more area or facilities. Demolition also happens in railways, chemical factories, laboratories, nuclear power stations and defense where hazardous materials such as lead, radio-logical,

High-speed Machining

The organised sector of the Indian machine tool industry has a come a long way after industrial policies were liberalised in the 1990s. In the last decade or so, with new technocrats emerging, the industry has witnessed many small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) replacing the space vacated by the shrinking of public sector ones or downsizing of big companies. The result is a more consolidated industry that is driven by cut-throat competition and a focus on technology. The challenge before

Tech Push for the Manufacturing Industry

An entire manufacturing process has many activities and operations that should ideally be monitored and controlled at several levels of pre-, during- and post-production. A modern manufacturing system has to be able to adapt to quick internal and external changes. To this end, a variety of successful models and control techniques have been developed in the last few years, which are based on the principles and tools of information technology (IT) and management science. At the technological level the current
