The Indian Institute of Metals is a premier organization representing materials and metallurgical engineers in India. Founded in 1946 by a group of metallurgists led by Dr. D.P. Antia, IIM is the largest professional organization for metallurgist in India with over 8000 members from R&D laboratories, academia and industry. The two main objectives of IIM are: promoting and advancing the science and technology of metals and alloys and protecting the interests of metallurgists and metallurgical industry.
The IIM Aurangabad sub-chapter was inaugurated on 28th November 2008. A one day workshop on Heat Treatment,
Casting and Surface Processing was organized on 28/11/2008 under the aegis of IIM Pune chapter. This workshop
received an overwhelming response with participation of more than 100 persons from industries and academic
institutions in and around Aurangabad. IIM, Pune Chapter is one of the oldest chapters of IIM, established
in 1947 under the leadership of Prof.G.K.Ogale, a distinguished metallurgist and the then Principal of
College of Engineering, Pune. The activities of Pune Chapter include organizing the topical seminars by
leading experts from India and abroad and specialized symposia, workshops and seminars like this one, on
the topics of current interest to local industries.
MIT is a group of educational and research institutions. Over last three and half decades, MIT has established 19 institutes at multiple locations in India. MIT has grown organically in three important provinces of India, viz. Maharashtra (Western India), Delhi (National Capital) & Uttar Pradesh (Northern India). More than 12000 full time & 2500 part time students are on different campuses for primary to post graduate education and vocational training. MIT offers courses in engineering & technology, management, architecture, science, nursing etc. This is approved by the authorities of State and Central Government and affiliated to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad. This institute is placed at a noteworthy rank in survey conducted by IDC-DATAQUEST-NASSCOM. MIT offers more than 12 degree courses. This institute is also certified as a research institute by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad, considering its research activities in the field of Engineering and Technology. MIT has developed strong linkages between industry, government & non government organization. By serving as a catalyst for industry-academic partnerships, MIT attempts to bring intellectual capital and emerging technologies together to improve quality of engineering & technology education.
With the advancement of technology, industry is constantly searching for more efficient ways of designing products prolonging wear. Abrasive wear is one of the prime causes of secondary failure and the mostly costly in design and operation of mechanical machines. While Heat treatments are regularly practiced, cryogenic treatment has been around for quite some time. 'Cryogenics' is an exciting and important frontier that already has led to major discoveries...and holds much future promise.This workshop will cover following area's from this field -
The intention of this workshop is to serve as a source of understanding the basics of wear and engineering wear problems. Different case studies from the experts will further strengthen the understanding of preventive measures using the latest technique of heat & cryogenic treatments to different engineering materials.
Eminent speakers from IIT & NIT's, Researchers and Professionals from automotive and other industries.
