Agnians from the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering attended ACMEE 2018, 13th International Machine Tools Exhibition, the biggest exhibition on machine tools organized by Ambattur Industrial Estate Manufacturers Association (AIEMA) in Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai, from 21st to 25th June 2018. Faculty members who accompanied the students were Dr.Kamalakannan – EEE, Mr. T. Srinivasan – Mech, Mr. Deepak – Mechatronics, and Mr.Prasanna – Mechatronics.
The event focussed on the latest machine tools technology available in different parts of the world with emphasis on Energy Saving Solutions, Improving Productivity and Industrial Automation. Students were exposed to a sea of buyers, dealers, manufacturers, sellers, and so on. A total of about 400+companies along with their staff had come and had displayed their wares. Advanced and Latest Machining Tools and Techniques were the prime models which were displayed in the stalls. The theory which had been learnt in class was materialised practically at the Exhibition. The efficiency improvement and the production rate increase, was well – understood by the different processes which was happening over there.
This event was also ultimately focused and provided emphasis on various fields of Engineering like, Energy Saving Solutions, Productivity rise and Industrial Automation. They were exposed to various Mechanical Tools for operations, like Die Casting Machines, Forging Tools, Drilling tools, Cutting Machines, Gear Box, Hydraulics, etc. Towards the end of the Exhibition, students were also given sound knowledge on how to convert these processes and the machines into start-ups, thereby evolving themselves into good Entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Students were with a blissful heart of having learnt a great deal of Engineering and with a hope of evolving ourselves into a budding Entrepreneur.
