Introduction to Manufacturing Processes
11-22 June 2018

Organizer: Prof. Niraj Sinha

Purpose of the course:

The economic strength of a country is usually judged by the growth of its manufacturing industries. Therefore, manufacturing has become part of the fabric of our country with emphasis on "Make in India" by the government. It is important that technical workforce from all disciplines have basic idea about processes involved in making a product. The course aims to impart the basic knowledge about the fundamental manufacturing techniques employed to convert a raw material into final product.

The course will introduce important mechanical properties of materials, conventional and non-conventional material removal processes, CNC programming, metrology, microfabrication processes and layered manufacturing technique. We plan to run this course in TA202 lab. Each day will start with one-hour lecture about various manufacturing processes that will be followed by working in the lab. At the end of the course, the participants will be able to demonstrate a working prototype designed, fabricated and assembled by them. The prototypes will be based broadly on following themes: agriculture, transportation, healthcare, educational toys to help school children, machines and mechanisms.

We envision participation from undergraduate students and faculty members that have been appointed recently through TEQIP. It will give opportunity to the students to get a hands on experience that they usually lack due to absence of infrastructure in their institute. At the same time, the faculty members will be exposed to the pedagogy of IIT Kanpur and this course will help them in planning the course and setting up the lab in their parent institute in an efficient manner.
