EEPC India executes two projects

EEPC India Technology Centre, Kolkata successfully executed two projects during July-August 2020. The projects were commissioned by Das Engineering Works, Belgachia, Howrah, West Bengal.

FIRST PROJECT

The first project involved the creation of 3D models of circular manhole cover and frame along with the specific weights of the components. The client provided photographs of 2D drawings of their requirements, which were to provide the weight of the components and design as per specification ASTM A48. The work order for the first project was received on 10 July 2020 and the job was completed within 12 days, i.e. on 22 July 2020.

Component size

Diameter of Cover and Frame: 745 mm
Diameter of Grate and Frame: 624 mm

Achievement

The Tech Centre created the 3D models and, using Analysis software, improved on the design by reducing the weights of the components.

SECOND PROJECT

The second project involved the creation of 3D models of rectangular manhole frame and two sizes of grates along with the specific weights of the components. The client provided photographs of 2D drawings of their requirements, which were to provide the weight of the components and design as per specification ASTM A48. The work order for the project was received on 19 August 2020 and the job was completed within nine days, i.e. on 28 August 2020.

Component size

Frame: 600 x 450 mm
Grate 1: 25.25 x 3 inch
Grate 2: 25.25 x 1.5 inch

Achievement

The Tech Centre created the 3D models and, using Analysis software, improved on the design by reducing the weights of the components.

EEPC INDIA INITIATIVE

EEPC India Technology Centre

EEPC India, under Ministry of Commerce, Government of India, has setup in-house Technology Centres in Bengaluru and Kolkata, the first of its kind among Indian EPCs for the benefit of MSMEs and Member Exporters, to increase the awareness of advanced technologies and help them to upgrade from their existing technology, mainly on knowhow in Manufacturing, and Quality practices.

Technology Centre aims to guide and train MSMEs on product innovation, designing, process improvement, new product development, and quality practices; it acts as a library of information in the fields of technology, international standards, and industry 4.0 etc, and also facilitates member-industries to experiment and educate them in technical upgradation and quality for exports.

The main vision of EEPC India’s Technology Centre is to focus on increasing India’s share of hi-tech and value-added products to be exported to the global markets.

Objectives

  1. To empower MSMEs with latest knowhow in the field of advanced manufacturing techniques and enable value addition of products.
  2. To provide a platform to connect with engineering clusters in India and interact with leading R&D expert panels and R&D labs, academic institutes across India and utilise their expertise.
  3. To implement strategies for narrowing the gap between technology development and its commercialisation and promotion in international markets by gathering market intelligence for technological development.

How the members would benefit

  • Technology access to its members;
  • Access to government schemes database, technology databank, R&D, academia, institutional databank, databank based on technical services, external links for IPR Databases;
  • Help its members to leverage technologies to make products at par with international standards;
  • Facilitate MSMEs in internationalising by upgrading level of technology;
  • Help cluster for product development – preparation of DPR to Government funding;
  • Pattern making for user industry at a concessional rate;
  • Reverse engineering
  • Facilitating existing businesses in
    – identifying technology gaps
    – reverse engineering, prototype development etc.
    – connecting to scientists/experts;
    – connecting to existing R&D labs, testing centres, accrediting bodies etc;
    – adopting better industrial design

Collaborations/associations

EEPC India Technology Centre has signed MoUs with several CSIR labs such as:

  • Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-CMERI, Durgapur)
  • Advanced Materials and Processes Research Institute (CSIR-AMPRI, Bhopal)
  • National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR-NML, Jamshedpur
  • National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology (CSIR-NIIST)

The Technology Centre has also signed MoUs with technology institutes – IIT-KGP, Indian Institute of Welding (IIW), International Institute of Waste Management (IIWM), National Institute of Design (NID), to name a few.
