    Dr.Latha Nagendran

    Greetings from the team AU-FRG Institute for CAD/CAM.

    AU-FRG Institute for CAD/CAM was established in February 1996 with a generous funding from the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). This pioneering institute aims at helping industries in an around Chennai to reap the benefits of using CAD/CAM/CAE technology which could increase productivity and product quality and make them compete in the global market.

    AU-FRG Institute for CAD/CAM offers services to Indian Industries in CAD/CAM/CAE areas by way of consultancy and research projects and providing customized training to their employees.

    Consultancy and research projects have been undertaken for industries ranging from large industrial groups such as TVS, Amalgamation, Hinduja, Ford and Murugappa Group of Companies to small scale industries and Central government research organizations like IGCAR, BARC, ISRO, CVRDE and DRDO. Small and medium sector companies in automotive ancillary parts manufacture and consumer product industries also form important segments.

    In addition, the centre helps in providing trained personnel to the industries through the various software training and knowledge updating programmes conducted for students across the country in software related to Solid Modeling, Finite Element Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Rigid Body Dynamic Analysis. The unique feature of these programmes is that along with the software the students are also given theoretical input from experienced faculty so that they learn how to apply the software appropriately to the problem on hand.

    AU-FRG ICC has always believed in acquiring the state of the art computing facilities so that the team of qualified people could take up the challenges and provide solutions with utmost technical competency. The Institute is equipped with the latest version of CAD/CAM/CAE Software tools with matching hardware facilities. The AUFRG ICC has recently procured two 3D printing machines which can be used to get physical prototypes straight away from the 3D CAD model. Rapid Prototyping and Rapid tooling have proved to be extremely useful for the industries to bring out products early to market.

    The AU-FRG ICC is unique as the faculty strength from different fields of Engineering can be drawn in from various departments to handle a variety of industrial projects requiring new product design, product modeling and optimization in product design, mechanical and thermal stress analysis, Flow analysis, NC code generation and CAM.

    The AU-FRG, ICC has been running a three year part time post graduate programme on Product Design and Development since 2002 catering to engineers from various industries, teachers from engineering colleges and fresh graduates.

    You are invited to partner with us so that we can work together in identifying and solving problems in areas of common interest in all the three segments namely Research, consultancy and training. We wholly believe that such kind of association would yield synergic results and be mutually beneficial.
