(i) Creation of Centre of Excellence at CMTI for Development of Advanced technologies for hi-tech Shuttleless Looms (Textile Machinery)
Project: The project relates to creation of Centre of Excellence at CMTI for Development of Advanced technologies for hi-tech indigenous Shuttleless Looms (Textile Machinery) to attain the speeds of 450 rpm and above in association with Consortium of TMMA
Presently the local shuttleless looms have a speed of speed of 250 rpm which is considered as lower end of technology. At present around 11,000 shuttleless looms both new and second hand (app.22%) for a value of Rs.1770 crore are being imported during 2013-14. The technology is monopolized by Italy, Belgium and Germany. Each loom costs between Rs 20 lakh to Rs 45 lakh depending upon the features. The total demand of shuttleless looms in the country during five years is estimated at 1.50 lakh nos. In absence of access to manufacturing technologies, the Indian Industry has no choice but to develop the technology locally.

The project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its second meeting held on 8.10.2015. These technologies are required to be developed import substitutes as high precision and cutting edge technologies in machine tool sector is a must for the country for making “Make in India” vision a success. The infrastructure so created under the COE and facilities created can be used by other industries also and will facilitate creation of an ecosystem. The government budgetary support would be limited to 44.7539 crores.
Common Engineering Facility Centre for training and skill development at HMT Training Institute
Project relates to setting up of Common Engineering Facility Centre for training and skill development at HMT Training Institute at a cost of Rs.0.97 crore, 20% of which i.e. Rs.19.40 lakhs will be borne by HMT. The project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its second meeting held on 8.10.2015. The Project aims to train in the job roles of CNC Operator, Fitter Mechanical Assembly, Quality Inspector, Machine wiring/ interfacing, Fitter Electrical Assembly using the expertise of staff and the infrastructural facility of HMT Machine Tools.
Machine Tool Park at Tumkur
Project relates to setting up a Machine Tool Park at Tumkur by Government of Karnataka, in coordination with IMTMA. This project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its third meeting held on 28.1.2016. Under this project, 500 areas of integrated machine tools park will be set up near the Japanese park in NMIZ, Tumkur. The project cost of Rs 421 crore will be partially met from the Government of India grant support of Rs 125 crore. The Government support will enable raising quality of industrial infrastructure to global level. This park will have most modern industrial infrastructure.When implemented fully, the park is expected to double Indian turnover of machine tools to Rs.9000 crore, with matching saving in imports/ forex. More than one lack jobs in primary & secondary manufacturing sectors as well as in commercial/ administrative arena will be created.
Creation of Centre of Excellence (COE) at PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore for development of welding Technologies
Project relates to setting up a Centre of Excellence in welding technology by PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore. This project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its third meeting held on 28.1.2016. Project envisages to set up a most modern welding technology centre of excellence in collaboration with major stake holders like Welding Research Institute, Manufacturers of welding equipment/ products and FICCI etc. The Centre of Excellence will support Indian manufacturers by proving latest technologies developed by the Centre for home -made welding machine tools, consumables and locally trained manpower particularly in high-end welding jobs required by strategy sector. The total budget, excluding land and building, is estimated to be Rs.26.7 crore. Out of this, the government will provide Rs.21.10 crore. It is expected that hundreds of high -tech welding jobs will be created as a result of the centre.
Technology support sought by HMT Machine Tools Limited from M/s Fraunhofer of Germany, under Technology Acquisition Fund Programme
Project relates to proposal from HMT Machine Tools Limited, a PSU, for modernizing its product portfolio by manufacturing latest lathe and turning mill centre under Technology Acquisition Fund Programme Component of the Scheme. Government will provide a grant of Rs. 1.54 crores to the company.HMT Machine Tools Limited pioneered setting up and growth of machine tool industry in India. For this they are collaborating with M/s Fraunhofer of Germany, the leading industrial technology development institute of the world. As a result, HMT will be in a position to supply most modern and latest ranges of these machines to Railways, Defence, Shipping, Aviation and Aerospace etc. This project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its third meeting held on 28.1.2016.
Common Engineering Facility Centre for electro slag re-melting, welding, gear box manufacturing and non-destructive testing by HEC
Project relates to setting up a Common Engineering Facility Center for providing niche training in the field of relating to electro slag re-melting, welding, gear box manufacturing and non-destructive testing from HEC – a central PSU in the area of manufacture of heavy engineering equipment since Nehruvian era. This project has been approved by the Apex Committee in its third meeting held on 28.1.2016.Under this project, HEC has collaborated with Messrs CNIITMASH – a Russian government Industrial Technology Research Institute.
