We feel profound happiness in forwarding this industrial training report as an image of sincere
efforts. It is almost in evitable to ensure indebt ness to all who generously helped by sharing their
valuable experience & devoting their precious time with us, without whom this industrial
training report would never have been accomplished.

I am highly indebted to HMT TRAINING INCHARGE for providing us with the

opportunity of industrial training such reputed and leading industry where we were not only
trained in technical aspects but also on human grounds. We also thanks to the staff of the
industry who, throughout the visit guided us their valuable guidance is indeed praiseworthy in
the entire process.


B.Tech , Final Year , ME

Engineering student gets theoretical knowledge only through their books.

Only theoretical Knowledge is not sufficient for absolute mastery in any field. Theoretical
knowledge given in our book is not of much use without knowing its practical implementation. It
has been experienced that theoretical knowledge is volatile in nature; however practical
knowledge makes solid foundation in our mind.

To accomplish this aspect the Rajasthan Technical University has included Industrial training for
the student of degree in the ending of VI semester. We accomplished our Industrial training on
24th May 2012 to 25th June 2012 succeeding chapters give details about what we have learnt
from the prestigious Organization.

Major achievements in last five years


When India achieved independence in 1947, there was hardly any industrial base
in the country. Right form the prior H.M.T. has played an important role in providing the
much needed industrial base as well as a launching pad for the growth & development of
the country.

HMT was conceived by the Government of India in 1949, and was incorporated
in 1953, with the objective of producing a limited range of machine tools, required for
building an industrial edifice for the country.

HMT Limited was established in 1953 in technical collaboration with M/s

Orleikon of Switzerland. Over the years, new products have been added to its
manufacturing range. It has technical collaboration with over 30 leading International
Engineering Companies for manufacture of various products HMTs diversified product
range includes Machine Tools, Watches, Tractors, Printing Machine Press, Di-Casting
and Plastic Injection, Moulding Machines, Food Processing Machinery, CNC Systems,
Bal Screws etc.

This Unit was established as Machine Tool Corporation of India limited in

January 1964 keeping in view the Government Policy of differing new industries in under
developed areas of the country and achieving self reliance in production of Grinding
Machine Tools which were imported.

This Unit was started 1970-71 with a production of Rs. 8.64 Lack faces with
difficulty in procurement of quality Machine Tool Casings a captive Foundry Plant was
installed in 193 with a capital of about Rs.2 Crore.

This Unit was subsequently merged with HMT Ltd. On 1 st April 1975 as sixth
Machine Tool Plant with this merger; the Unit got backup support of HMT. The basic
plant was established with the collaboration of the Czechoslovakian firms, M/s Skoda
Export, Praha and German firm WMW, then in East Germany.

1.2.1 Human Resource Department:

Headed by Joint General Manager (HRM) this department is setup with an aim of
conservation and proper utilization of human resources and is also responsible for
maintaining the cordial relations between employees and management. The other important
functions of this department are performance appraisal and different welfare activities for
the employee.

1.2.2 Foundry Department:

Headed by JGM Foundry. This department is administratively under HMT Ajmer,\

but functionally under executive director. Pattern making

Patterns provide the exterior (mould) or interior (core)shape of the finished casting and
are produced in wood,metal or resin for use in sand mould and core making.Patterns are
usually made in two halves. Sand mould and core making

Sand casting is the most common production technique, especially for ferrous castings.
Sand is mixed with clay and water or with chemical binders and then packed or rammed
around the pattern to form a mould half. The two halves are joined together to make the
mould - a rigid cavity that provides the required shape for the casting, as shown in Fig.
6 below.

Variations on this technique include the use of plaster in place of sand and the recently
invented Patternless process (CDC 2000), where the mould is machined directly out
of a sand block without the need for a pattern.
Cores are produced by blowing, ramming or in heated processes, investing sand into a
core box. The finished cores, which can be solid or hollow, are inserted into the mould
to provide the internal cavities of the casting before the mould halves are joined. Sand
cores are also widely used in diecasting, where permanent metal moulds are employed. Metal melting

Molten metal is prepared in a variety of furnaces, the choice of which is determined by

the quality, quantity and throughput required.

Electric induction furnaces are the most common type used for batch melting of
ferrous, copper and super alloys. This method involves the use of an electrical current
surrounding a crucible that holds the metal charge. Furnace sizes range from < 100 kg
up to 15 tonnes.
For production of super alloys and titanium, melting may be undertaken in a vacuum
chamber to prevent oxidation Casting and separation

Molten metal is poured into moulds using various types of ladles, or in high volume
production, automated pouring furnaces. Metal is poured into the runner (a channel into
the mould cavity) until the runner bush is full. The riser provides an additional
reservoir of feed metal to counteract the shrinkage that occurs as the casting begins to

When the metal has cooled sufficiently for the casting to hold its shape, it is separated
from the mould by mechanical or manual methods. Where sand moulds are used, the
process is often referred to as shakeout or knockout, and large amounts of dust may be
generated Removal of runners and risers

After casting, these extraneous pieces of metal are removed and often collected for re-
melting. In ferrous castings and larger non-ferrous castings, they may be removed by
knocking off, sawing or cutting using an arc air or oxy-propane torch. In die-castings,
they are often snapped off manually. Finishing

A range of finishing processes is usually undertaken. These include:

cleaning to remove residual sand, oxides and surface scale, often by shot or tumble
heat treatment, including annealing, tempering, normalising and quenching (in
water or oil) to
enhance mechanical properties;
removal of excess metal or surface blemishes, (e.g., flash resulting from incomplete
closure or burrs left from riser cut-off), by grinding, sawing or arc air (oxy-propane
rectification of defects by welding;
non destructive testing to check for defects;
priming, painting or application of a rust preventative coating. Sand recovery and reclamation

The industry recycles a large proportion of mould and core making sand internally for
re-use. This involves processing to remove tramp metal and returns the sand to a
condition that enables it to beused again for mould or core production

1.2.3 Manufacturing and Assembly Department:

Headed by JGM (manufacturing). HMT Ajmers manufacturing environment is highly
advanced; this department also looks after utilizing only the latest production
techniques in all phases of manufacturing maintenance. This assembly of machine is
done stages, much as sub assembly. Group assembly and final assembly of individual
components. There subassemblies after inspection pass on group assembly, which
consists of head stock assembly, saddle, gearbox, tail stock assemblies etc. this group
then reaches to the final assembly to be fitted on the bed. Electrical are also inter faced
and the machine is ready for final testing and printing of plant and equipment.
1.2.4 Service & Inspection Department:

Headed by DGM. This department is responsible for inspection & Servicing of the
M/Cs. This department is concerned with the inspection of various components and
machines being manufactured. The inspection is carried out in various stages, beginning
from the inspection of individual components at different stages of manufacturing
followed by the inspection of the whole machine while included final runs etc.
Inspection of incoming material is also handled.
