On the 22nd of August JSC “RPA “CNIITMASH” (a company included in Atomenergomash, a machine-building division of Rosatom) and Government of India Enterprise Heavy Engineering Corporation Limited (HEC Ltd), India, started the advanced training course “Heat Treatment” for Indian engineers.
The training is held in Ranchi (India) at the premises of the Common Engineering Facility Centre (CEFC) and will continue till the 31st of August. This is the second training course out of nine developed by CNIITMASH and planned to be launched in 2018 within the frameworks of implementation of Stage 3 of Agreement НЕС01 for setting up of CEFC in India.
For the following one and a half weeks over twenty experts of Indian machine-building enterprises are going to study the nuances of heat treatment applied in the process of manufacture of heavy and power engineering items in accordance with the program developed by the scientists of CNIITMASH. The training course will be delivered by Alan Balikoev, Senior Scientist Researcher of the Large-Size Ingot Laboratory, Department of Steel Metallurgy, Institute of Metallurgy and Machine-Building of CNIITMASH. According to the decision of Ranchi University, the CEFC Certificate, which is to be awarded to the course graduates, will be recognized as an Advanced Training Certificate in the territory of India.
Vladislav Lurye, Head of the Contract Follow-up Department of CNIITMASH Foreign Trade Division informed that the training course would take only one and a half weeks because it seemed impossible to keep the heat treaters away from their work places: “Indian specialists attending the course are current employees of Indian heavy engineering companies or University associates. Jointly with HEC Ltd we pay special attention to organization of the courses in such a manner as to avoid destructing the students from their work longer than necessary.” He added that despite the tight time limits the Indian colleagues were going to have quite a busy agenda, they would get lectures, answers to the questions, quizzes, self-tuition and conducted tours arranged by the Indian party.
Like all other courses in the training cycle, the heat treatment course is intended to be repeated. By the end of 2018 the scientists of CNIITMASH will improve the skills of Indian experts in the field of steel making and metallurgy, electro-slag remelting, destructive and non-destructive testing, design and technology of gear manufacturing. The duration of the courses is from one and a half weeks up to four months. The beginning of the next course is scheduled for the end of September.
Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd is an Indian company with public ownership operating in the heavy engineering sector. The Cooperation Agreement between НЕС and CNIITMASH was signed in December 2015.
