"A celebration of productivity achievements and innovation in metal working"
Changing customer expectations coupled with continuous thrust on cost reduction has been throwing up new challenges in manufacturing.
The answer lies in adopting highly productive manufacturing solutions through superior machining processes, alternative processes, automation, efficient machines and smart manpower. To champion the cause of productivity in the metal working industry, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) is organizing the National Productivity Summit (8th in the series) on 20-21 August 2014 at Chennai. The event showcases best productivity practices in metalworking through live Case study presentations. Plant visits and Keynote sessions. National Productivity Summit 2014 is an excellent forum to meet leading practitioners from the field, exchange concepts and new ideas and gain insights on practical implementation of productivity improvement projects.
Formed in the year when India secured its independence, IMTMA has continuously played a leading role in the development of the machine tool industry, which is the backbone for industrial growth of India. This national cause has been the guiding force behind IMTMA and its membership.
IMTMA is deeply committed to support its membership to increase competitiveness, enhance efficiency, improve productivity, and ensure growth and prosperity. It does so with the aim to assist the membership to become cost effective, technology driven, and ever responsive to customers’ changing needs. At the same time, IMTMA has supported the user industries with better and more modern technology of machine tools to provide them with competitive manufacturing solutions.
IMTMA is today recognized as the sole voice of the Indian machine tool industry – it is the face of the industry to the government, to its members, suppliers and users. Its membership of around 475 constitutes a major part of this strategic sector in the country.
