Machine tool industry captains woo students

Bengaluru, Jan 28, 2017, DHNS 1:54 IST
President of Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA), P G Jadeja, on Friday urged students to visit ‘IMTEX 2017 & Tooltech 2017’ — IMTMA’s flagship event and South East Asia’s largest exhibition on metal cutting technologies.

The event will give students an exposure to the technological know-how and give them an opportunity to interact with the top executives of various companies, he said.

Jadeja said the i2 Academia Pavilion at IMTEX 2017 will see the participation of nearly 40 institutions from all over India, including the IITs. These institutions will get an opportunity to present their innovative research projects on machine tools in the form of posters and also take part in competitions.

“The i2 Academia Pavilion will help academia participants update themselves with current scenario in the machine tool industry, particularly the latest technologies in machine tool building. The industry, on the other hand, gets an opportunity to network with the academia and select their products or technology for commercial usage,” Jadeja added.

Under the capital goods enhancement scheme, IMTMA, in association with IIT-Madras and six machine tool companies, is working on 11 machine tool technologies. One of these projects was launched at IMTEX 2017. Students can avail this opportunity to gather information on the job opportunities available by interacting with industry experts. Nearly 600 students from both mechanical and electrical engineering streams had participated in Job Connect during IMTEX 2015.
