Foundry 4.0 Students Activity Center (F4SAC)

Foundry 4.0 Students Activity Center (F4SAC)

Foundry 4.0 centers around smart manufacturing and what the future will hold with greater computing power, connectivity, feedback, and digitization of the physical world. Foundry 4.0 Student Activity Center at IIT Tirupati includes many aspects, including the use of robotics, artificial intelligence, data and process automation, and other emerging technologies. Foundry 4.0 is a totally interconnected workspace where the equipment and the machines are connected and making decisions based on data rather than having human interaction. The machining cells are the decision-makers. They request parts and tell it when the parts are complete.

The Institute of Indian Foundrymen

The Institute of Indian Foundrymen (IIF) was set up in 1950 to promote education, research, training, and development to Indian foundrymen and to serve as a nodal point of reference between the customers and suppliers of the Indian foundry industry on a global scale. With its Head Quarter in Kolkata, IIF presently services the entire country through its 26 Chapters under four Regional Offices located at Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai & Chennai. The Institute is a member of the World Foundrymen Organisation (WFO) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
