An international workshop on Near Net Shape Manufacturing of Precision Engineering Components (NNSM 2014) will be held on June 5-6, 2014 at the CSIR-Central Glass & Ceramic Research Institute in Kolkata, India.

Near net shape manufacturing of precision engineering components is an emerging paradigm for achieving higher productivity at lower cost. Availability of advanced technologies and modern process chains has resulted in novel net shape manufacturing routes obviating the need for costly and time consuming traditional techniques.

The manufacturing of precision optical components is one such case in point. Further, the ceramics, metallurgical and materials processing industries are poised for revolutionary changes in the wake of several advanced technologies which are being developed across the globe for near net shape manufacturing of precision components, including Powder Injection Moulding (PIM), spray forming and additive manufacturing.

The workshop is aimed at introducing some of these state of the art technologies to the participating delegates. Speakers from India and overseas, including those from both academia and industry, will deliver talks on:

  • Replicative near net shape forming of glass aspheric lenses
  • Dieless sheet metal forming
  • Laser-aided intelligent manufacturing of metallic components
  • Powder Injection Moulding of ceramic and composites
  • Spray forming and Field assisted sintering
  • Additive Manufacturing of precision parts
