The International Centre for Advancement of

Manufacturing Technology (ICAMT),

The ICAMT is one of the International Technology Centres established by UNIDO with
support from the Government of India. Foremost among its mission is to bridge the
technology divide by promoting technology as
a means to achieving industrial
competitiveness in developing countries. ICAMT is implementing national programs for
development of selected sectors (toy, stone, machine tools, and lock) in India. The estimated
cost of these national programs is USD 6.6 mi
llion. The Centre has taken the initiative to
promote Indian technologies for manufacturing alternate building materials derived from
industrial waste in developing countries.

The core objectives of ICAMT are (1) to build/strengthen the institutional

and technical
capacity and international framework for promoting advancement of energy efficient
technologies and industrial investments in manufacturing sector of industries of developing
countries; and (2) to foster South
South and North
South coopera
tion and partnerships
enabling developing countries to enhance their manufacturing capabilities and benefit from
technological advances in manufacturing for sustainable development.

The Centre offers the following services:

International Channels for te
chnology transfer, training and support for technology

International seminars/ workshops/ exhibitions/ business forums/ expert group

Access to international databases dedicated to manufacturing technology

Expert advisory and consultancy


Logistic support and turnkey solutions

Specialized training

Appropriate networking for better marketing

Energy Efficient product / process development for increased competitiveness

Benchmarking of Technology


CMTI is an R & D organization focusing its efforts mainly on harnessing know
how in the
manufacturing technology sector to practical purposes and assisting technological growth in the


country. CMTI has the role of being a catalyst
and a

key player in manufacturing technology
growth in the country. Established in the 60s under the name “Central Machine Technology
Institute”, it was renamed in 1992 in tune with its current role in the manufacturing scenario,
which is broader than the narro
w focus of machine tools.

Since 1975, the Institute has been playing a major role in filling the gaps in manufacturing
technology and improvements in energy efficiency in production processes that were either not
developed by the indigenous industry or w
ere not available to industry even through imports.

CMTI has the wherewithal to help industries at three levels:


Strategic level inputs for decision makers


Managerial level inputs for process managers


Operational level inputs within the organization


functional capabilities of CMTI include:

Design and Development



Precision Engineering

Research and Testing

Research in Machining Technology


Technology Information Services



The purpose of the

Institute is stated as follows: “To support industries to achieve excellence
in technology and stimulate economic growth.”

CMTI also offers laboratory services and in this respect has accumulated expertise in the
following areas:

Chemical analysis

ny standardization

Fluid power

Machine vision



Noise and Vibration

Prototype testing

The institute also offers an extensive library collection, as well as databases encompassing
products, bibliographies, directories, statistical data a
nd patents.

The CMTI has also set up a Rapid Product Development Centre which offers total solutions
for rapid product development and consultancy, which to date has benefited automobile,
electrical, electronics, aerospace, micro/mini hydro turbines, rene
wable energy technology,
jewellery, toy and other industries.


ICAMT/CMTI have the capability to train an
additional 200 trainers from abroad, in
addition to its current training load.

1.B Institute for Machine Tools Technology (IMTT)

The Machine Tool I
ndustry constitutes the backbone of the Industrial Sector and is vital for
the growth of the capital goods industry. Even though the Indian machine tool industry forms
a small segment of the engineering industry, it plays a very important role in its deve
and technology up
gradation. The quality and cost of engineering products depends on the
quality of parent machine tools and their automation levels. The development of machine tool
industry is therefore of paramount importance for a competitive an
d self
reliant industrial

The Indian machine tool industry comprises of large, medium and small
scale sectors. There
are a large number of machine tool units in the small
scale sector located in Punjab and
nearby regions. These small
scale se
ctors have traditionally a strong presence in the machine
tool industry, meeting the demands of ancillary and other units, whereas machine tools from
the large sector meet the demand of medium and heavy industries.

The priority of the Government of Indi
a and the Government of Punjab for establishing
IMTT for upgrading the technology of small
scale machine tool manufacturer was directed
from the overall priority of the small
scale industrial sector. Therefore, the primary endeavor
of the existing institut
e for machine tools technology is to provide technical services in terms
of new designs, precision engineering facilities, laboratory and testing, expert advice and
training to entrepreneurs and engineers of small scale units in Punjab. This project was s
et up
by the State Govt., with the assistance of UNIDO/UNDP in 1993, to enhance the growth of
machine tools industry, and make it more competitive through the assistance in technology
gradation, modernization, and precision manufacturing.

1.C Institut
e for Auto
parts & Bicycle Parts Technology (IAPT & IBT)

The quality, safety and cost of automobiles depend very much on the availability of quality
components for incorporation into original equipments, and as spares during its operating life.
The pictu
re in India is that, 50% of all automotive parts come from the small
scale sector; in
terms of number it comes to 95% of all units. At the beginning of 1990, out of about 5,000
small scale and ancillary units manufacturing auto parts in India, nearly 2,000

were in
Punjab. Some of the products had export potential as well. The majority of the parts were
metal based. The small units’ management and engineering capabilities as well as quality
control aspects were weak. As a considerable number of these auto pa
rts making units were
centred in Ludhiana, the Govt. of Punjab decided to establish the Institute for Auto Parts
Technology (IAPT) in Ludhiana with the help of UNIDO/UNDP.

The development objective of the project was to improve the quality and reliabilit
y of
automotive components manufactured by small scale producers, thereby facilitating import
substitution, export promotion and employment generation.

3. Objectives of the Worksh

The main objective of this project is to provide training, education and skill development for
trainers from English speaking participating African countries at the UNIDO established
training Centres in Bangalore, Ludhiana and Batala in India, in orde
r to increase their level of
technical competence in the areas of machine tools and manufacturing technology, thereby
enabling the participants to facilitate the institutions in their home bases to adopt and
introduce new technologies, energy efficiency, w
ork practices, product designs and
processes, use of alternative energy sources resulting in multiplier effect, further improving
job opportunities through skills upgrading. Through the training of trainers, this project
intends to further strengthen the i
ndustrial capabilities leading to improved production
methods, process controls and standardization resulting in increased competitiveness,
efficiency and productivity with special focus on agro machinery, machinery for RE
generation and other appropriate
technology production processes.

This project will help build partnerships and effective linkages for the twinning of technical
training institutes in African countries with the institutes in Bangalore and Punjab and other
machine tool centres in India, f
or the long term program of cooperation for industrial training,
technology awareness building and institutional support within the framework of South
