INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE LAB

SMART Foundry 2020 project under TSDP of DST

Ten research institute including public and private engineering collages as well as govt. R&D organizations have come together to reinvent metal casting process for education and entrepreneurship by leveraging the latest techniques in 3D Scanning, CAD Simulation, 3D printing and tabletop metal casting technologies.

There is a need to accelerate manufacturing in developing countries like India, to provide employment for millions of young people and contribute to economic development, but this needs to be achieved with minimal adverse impact on the environment. Smart manufacturing allows wider distribution of related activities, creating employment opportunities closer to the end‐users based on their need, and reducing wastage of production resources as well as logistics. The enabling technologies, which are all broadly related to information technology, can be used to reinvent the manufacturing processes, especially metal casting, to make it more sustainable. The SMART Foundry system being developed by a collaborative team of researchers across India, is expected to get young people interested in manufacturing, who can set up small scale businesses, becoming job creators instead of job seekers.

The SMART Foundry 2020 team consists of 12 eminent scientists from 10 high ranking institutes. CSIR‐NIIST, Trivandrum; CSIR‐CMERI, Durgapur; VNIT, Nagpur; Jadavpur University, Kolkata; IIT Bombay, Mumbai; CHARUSAT, Anand; COE, Pune and Dr. Vasudev Shinde, DKTE TEI, Ichalkaranji. The  total investment amount for the project is 83.694 lakhs.
