Automobiles, Mechanical And Mechanical Projects

Indian Automotive Component Industry is reckoned to be dynamic, lucrative and committed to deliver global standards of quality at internationally competitive prices. India happened to be a happening destination for outsourcing of Auto components. The automobile component industry is striving aggressively to make quality products complying with ISO quality standard as a result, around 564 companies associated with ACMA "Automotive Component Manufacturers Association" have been awarded with ISO quality certification. A company won Japan Quality Medal and other 15 companies won the JIPM Excellence award.

Indian Auto Components Industry tends to found a granite foundation in operational & manufacturing performance in order to obtain ambitious & promising target and hit the international benchmarks on quality, cost, supply, customer satisfaction & value. There is a constant strive for enhancing technology, honing research & development skill, improving productivity, and erecting the large pool of specialties & expertise. Government, Other organization like UNIDO & ACMA, and overseas technology partners are cooperating and closely supervising the industry to actualize this aspiring dream.


Description of a Metallurgist:

Metallurgists are engineers who specialize in materials and minerals. They develop processes that produce or process metals and minerals, and give advice on their use, extraction, improvement, production, performance and the way they should be combined with other materials such as polymers or ceramics.

Tasks and Duties:

Metallurgists may do some or all of the following: study the properties of metals and other materials

    develop and improve existing materials
    develop new combinations of metals (alloy development) and create products that combine metals with other materials
    develop techniques to repair metal damage
    advise engineers and manufacturers on industrial processes that use metals and the correct selection of metals for specific uses
    check the quality of metals or other materials used in new products
    inspect metallic materials and equipment for quality/weakness and advise on failure prevention, improvement, repairs and replacement
    investigate what has caused metallic materials or equipment to break or fail in any given situation take photos of test samples
    analyse test samples
    write reports on investigation results
    act as independent experts for loss adjusters and insurance companies
    write evidence briefs for litigation cases and appear as an expert witness in court
    supervise or mentor other metallurgists
    speak at conferences
    analyse other materials such as paints and chemicals, and make recommendations on their production, use and improvement.


 Metallurgists need to have:

    problem-solving skills and analytical ability
    practical and technical skills
    excellent written and oral communication skills
    report writing skills
    research skills
    planning and organisational skills.


Metallurgists need to know about:

    maths, physics and chemistry
    metals, minerals, plastics, paints, ceramics and other materials
    the various ways of examining metals, materials  and minerals
    research methods and laboratory procedures
    practical engineering.

Metallurgists should also keep up to date with the latest research developments and laboratory techniques.

Personal Qualities:

Metallurgists need to be clear and enquiring thinkers who enjoy work that involves accuracy. They should be adaptable and flexible because they are required to work on a wide range of projects at a variety of worksites. They also need to be patient when examining samples and analyzing problems. An ability to work well under pressure is also important, as is the need to be self-motivated and innovative.

Physical Requirements:

Metallurgists need good eyesight (with or without glasses) and good hand-eye co-ordination. Metallurgists should be reasonably fit as they may need to remove metal parts from worksites for analysis at a laboratory. They should also be comfortable working in confined spaces and at heights, as they may need to work on scaffolding or in other high places

Workplaces and Travel:

Metallurgists work in offices and laboratories. They may work in research centres, steel foundries, chemical plants, in production or processing plants at mines, or on offshore oil rigs. Metallurgists may have to travel to national and international worksites.


Equipment metallurgists may use includes:

    specialized machinery to analyze various samples
    scientific and laboratory equipment such as microscopes and measuring devices
    a variety of chemicals
    safety clothing

Workplace Conditions:

Metallurgists work in conditions that can range from an office environment, to noisy, dusty processing plants at mines. At times they may need to work at heights or in confined spaces to take samples and carry out metal failure examinations. Conditions may be dangerous when working with chemicals and substances heated to very high temperatures.


Metallurgists usually work regular hours, but may be required to work irregular hours when investigating breakdowns or metallic failures. They usually travel to worksites and this can involve long hours if the site is a long way from their office. 

Contact with People:

Metallurgists usually work independently, but may work as part of a team on an investigation. They interact with clients and work with a variety of people in other industries, such as factory production managers, engineers, insurance agents and lawyers. They also work with the Police and the Civil Aviation Authority when investigating vehicle and aircraft accidents. If working at a mine, metallurgists interact and work closely with the people operating and maintaining the plant, geologists, environmental officers and technicians.
