Industry 4.0 is the current trend in manufacturing world over. Welding, being an essential and important part of any sector of economy, it is also getting ‘intelligentised’ by Virtual Reality, Internet of Things, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelegence, Additive manufacturing, Cobots etc. Welding fraternity, therefore, is also addressing the needs and implication of Welding 4.0 environment in the immediate future, in which nothing is certain.
The modern fast and automated manufacturing Technology required in these Mass-manufacturing industries, involves Welding processes such as Resistance Spot, Seam, Projection and Butt Welding, MIG/MAG Welding, FCAW, Laser Cutting & Welding, Friction Welding and Friction Stir Welding. In spite of the high end technology the quality inconsistency, especially in the Arc Welding Family, arising due to distortion and welding defects is still a major issue every welding Engineer faces.
Means of transport - be it road, rail, air or water – all of them necessarily depend on welding technology for their manufacturing. The same goes for the consumer durable & white goods industry. The quality needs of various welded sheet metal and other components are vital for the producers to reach the A-class level of competence and consistency of the integrated final product. In contrast to mass-manufacturing, there are other sectors where quality at any cost is the criterion, but they still need to be competitive at the same time.
As per ISO:9001-2015, Continual Improvement by Process Control is necessary, implying Quality is not a destination, but a never ending journey. Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing 2 day programme on Towards Zero Defects in Welding Technology on 18 - 19 January 2019 at Bangalore. This will help the practicing engineers in developing full technical understanding of the subject and solve manufacturing issues related to welding processes.
After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -
