Website Of NTTF - Tagma Library

There are hundreds of titles of presentations prepared by the PG students in all areas of interest in Tooling & Gauging, and you can freely download for your own use. These are available under the title Presentations on this Webpage itself. You are entitled to all information hosted by the website as TAGMA member.

Computer Based Training Section (CBT)

Keeping in view the current trends in dissemination of knowledge, the library has the most updated computer based training facility. There are ten Sun workstations connected in a LAN to conduct computer based Training on different topics related to tool and gauge manufacturing.

CBT Modules available at NTTF - TAGMA Library are

  • Paulson’s Training Program in Injection Molding from USA

    This Computer Based Training (CBT) program, enables an engineer or a supervisor to get trained in an interactive and effective manner. The effectiveness this CBT training can be gauged from the feed back comment of one of the participants, who said,

    "What you can learn in four years from the shop floor of an injection molding shop, you can learn in four days by going through the Paulson’s CBT training on Injection Molding".

    A four day self training program at the library is sufficient to understand all problems associated with injection molding process and how they need to be addressed. At present up to 10 persons can be trained simultaneously.

  • Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing

    Design Engineers can be trained in Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing at this library. The computer based training software for this subject is developed by the PG school of NTTF.

    Design for Assembly, Manufacturability, Service and Environment from USA

  • Design for Assembly, Manufacturability, Service and Environment from USA

    10 seats of this software from Boothroyd and Dewhurst, USA are available to train engineers to improve the design efficiency of assembly and to make the parts easily manufacturable. Further they can take care of the service requirements and disposal at the end of the useful life of products.
