Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
Manufacturing is wide area of inputs, processes and products which includes production of large ships to hand drilling equipment and from micro circuits to automobiles. Manufacturing covers a very wide range of field right from robots to highly mechanized lines and also simple day to day use equipment with mechanical activities.Thus, manufacturing industries in recent year produces a dimension scale of more than fifteen orders of magnitudes. The design and manufacture of huge machinery from ships and space crafts on one side while Nano and Pico technology on the other side of the dimension scale, highlights the challenges ahead for engineers and technologists. Advancement in manufacturing technologies unfolds lot of opportunities for the scientific and academic companionship.
