Ametek India - Mantra for Test systems : Insight on Problems & Solutions
Mr. Harshavardhan Uppalapati, Manager – Application engineering, AMETEK India
Mr. Chris Nelson at Intel Corp, said during a seminar that, “testers should be like rental cars – sit down and drive” and we do agree to him. The defence and aerospace industry presents many unique challenges relative to the life cycle of a specific avionics platform or weapons system that are not typically found in consumer markets. Ever increasing emphasis on reduction of life cycle cost of test and measurement solutions used in aerospace industry are driving the manufacturers and end users to explore the opportunities to move towards standardization. This enables the users to bring up synergy in different solutions required for different applications. This paper intends to introduce some of these trends and how users and manufacturers will get benefited out of these standards and our initiatives. The concentration of this session would be around the following:
1. Reduction in duplication of test system development (software and hardware)
2. Reduction in ever increasing demand of specific spares inventory
3. Better upgrade & obsolescence management
4. Lowering the Cost of training programs and personnel
5. Best practices in application / test software development

Dr. Laurent Cataldo, Inventor of MMP technology and CEO - BINC INDUSTRIES, France
Invented in Switzerland, MMP Technology is a proprietary super-finishing technology that involves a mechanical, physical and catalytic movement to achieve very controlled finishes at a level of reproducibility and homogeneity that was earlier not possible. MMP Technology uses a process of selective removal of roughness, which help it reach very high levels of surface finishes (in some cases 0.015 micron) with minimal material removal and Absolutely NO affect on the mechanical and chemical properties of the material. MMP can be applied to wide range of materials.
