IMTMA provides expertise and guidance to serve the industry by working with the membership to develop, promote, and implement services that meet customer expectations.
IMTMA disseminates basic information about the machine tool industry, provides in-depth analysis, trends and latest developments of the user sectors through focused studies. IMTMA strives to strengthen the relations between industry and user sectors by providing the information to members on user sector requirements and enabling the members to serve them better.
IMTMA organizes B2B missions for CEOs and Senior Executives from the machine tool industry to visit important machine tool exhibitions combined with visits to prominent machine tool companies abroad. These visits are intended to provide an opportunity for Indian company executives, to observe latest developments in machine tools abroad, market and business conditions, observe best practices in reputed manufacturers’ facilities and explore business opportunities between Indian and foreign machine tool companies.
With an aim of promoting the good practices in the industry, IMTMA either during the Regional Council meetings or during the seminaras and summits conducts plant visits. These plant visits helps the members and the industry to inculcate the latest practices to take their company to the next level.
For an industry like machine tools, it is very improtant for the companies to share the information and help each other grow. The plant visits help the delegates and members to witness the latest practices being implemented live.
The plant visits have been arranged to companies like Havells India Limited, TAL - Robotic application centre & assembly shop, BEML Limited's Metro & Rail Division, International Tractors, STEER Engineering, CNC Shop and ‘Adour’ Engine Assembly at Engine Division of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Kennametal India Limited, ITC Ltd., India Tobacco Division, TVS Motor Company Ltd, Ace Designers Ltd, Autoliv India Pvt. Ltd, LPS-BOSSARD, Ashok Leyland Ltd, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Private Limited amongst others
The machine tool industry is driven by the demands of the customer. So as an Association, IMTMA makes efforts to provide a platform for the customers to interact with the companies, which otherwise would not have happened.
During every EC meeting, the customers are invited to interact with the industry. A few of the EC meetings are held in the companies thus allowing for an interaction between the industry and the customers.
