The lat­est high-pre­ci­sion weld­ing tech­nol­ogy of Ja­pan was in­tro­duced to In­dia at a re­cent sem­i­nar in Chennai. The two-day tech­ni­cal sem­i­nar and work­shop on `High Pre­ci­sion Arc Weld­ing Tech­nol­ogy’ was or­gan­ised by the Min­istry of Econ­omy, Trade and In­dus­try, Ja­pan (METI), and the Con­fed­er­a­tion of In­dian In­dus­try (CII) in as­so­ci­a­tion with the As­so­ci­a­tion for Over­seas Tech­ni­cal Co­op­er­a­tion and Sus­tain­able Part­ner­ships (AOTS ) and Ka­sai Eco­nomic Fed­er­a­tion (Kankeiren).

“Strong In­dia ben­e­fits Ja­pan and strong Ja­pan ben­e­fits In­dia. Ja­pan has started tak­ing sig­nif­i­cant mea­sures to im­prove the hu­man re­source in In­dia and we shall con­tinue to sup­port such kind of ini­tia­tives here,” Ko­jiro Uchiyama, Con­sul Gen­eral of Ja­pan in Chennai, said. He reaf­firmed Ja­pan’s sup­port for ini­tia­tives such as Make in In­dia, Dig­i­tal In­dia, Skill In­dia and Startup In­dia.

Masa­fumi Hi­meno, Di­vi­sional Di­rec­tor, SFS Di­vi­sion, Pana­sonic In­dia Pvt Ltd, said that Chennai is the hub of weld­ing ex­per­tise and the weld­ing ex­perts are will­ing and equipped to adopt the lat­est tech­nol­ogy in weld­ing to pro­duce goods of in­ter­na­tional stan­dard.

Hisashi Kanda, Gen­eral Man­ager, AOTS, In­dia, said, “This ini­tia­tive of METI sup­ports the govern­ment’s vi­sion of rais­ing In­dia’s share of GDP in man­u­fac­tur­ing from the present 16% to 25% by 2022.” Stress­ing the need for ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy in­fu­sion along with skill de­vel­op­ment, he added, “ap­pli­ca­tion of ad­vanced in­tel­li­gent weld­ing ma­chines which syn­er­gise with the skill of welders to achieve su­pe­rior qual­ity welds with higher pro­duc­tiv­ity, is the next big thing of the fu­ture for In­dian in­dus­try.”

Si­vane­san R, Se­nior VP, Qual­ity, Sourc­ing and Sup­ply Chain, Ashok Ley­land Ltd, said, he is happy to see that In­dia and Ja­pan col­lab­o­rated to skill the In­dian young­sters. “We have seen Ja­pan’s con­tri­bu­tion to econ­omy, tech­nol­ogy and var­i­ous other fields. Now, this is the most re­quired skill,” he said.

S Chan­dramo­han, Vice Chair­man, CII Tamil Nadu State Coun­cil, and Group Pres­i­dent and CFO, TAFE Ltd, said that the Ja­panese tech­nol­ogy is an ideal ex­am­ple of the best man­u­fac­tur­ing prac­tice giv­ing the world the “zero-de­fect” prin­ci­ple.

“The Govern­ment of In­dia ini­tia­tives like Make in In­dia need skilled man­power. This sem­i­nar will give knowl­edge and skills to many,” R Senthil Ku­mar, Di­rec­tor, Ad­vanced Train­ing In­sti­tute (ATI), Chennai, said.
