A new technology awareness seminar in composites technology attended by 30 industry delegates and presented as a joint venture between the Confederation of Indian Industry and TWI has proved to be a great success. �The programme of presentations - which covered fabrication and joining methods for different composite materials, current and potential applications, commercial data, and health and safety concerns - sparked great interest in the use of composites for new or alternative applications and resulted in a number of requests from delegates for more in-depth information.
The one-day event Composite Materials Joining Technology and Applications was scoped in response to industry need and took place at the end of October at the CII Naoroji Godrej Centre of Excellence in Mumbai. It was attended by senior engineers, managers, and technology professionals from a broad cross-section of Indian industry.�
Speaking on behalf of TWI, Chris Wiseman said: 'We are delighted with the response we received from the delegates at this awareness event and the success of our first joint venture with the Confederation of Indian Industry. We are pleased also to have been invited by CII to consider topics for similar events in 2014.'
TWI has been offering training and examinations services in India for over 20 years, across all sectors. Its joint venture programme with the Confederation of Indian Industry adds technology awareness and technical support to its existing services portfolio.
In the year since the launch of TWI's new India facility in Chennai in January 2013, TWI has expanded its staff base to include experienced specialists from Indian industry, and has been building its training, examination and technical services portfolio for customers and Industrial Members in the region. Training in NDT and inspection is supported by an NDT Research and Engineering Services department at the facility, linking direct with the services offered by TWI in the UK.
