Event Overview: Optimisation of Product Development using PTC Creo – Navi Mumbai
On Feb 4, 2016, I had an opportunity to attend event arranged by PTC Channel Partner Kratos Engineering. It was a short (3 hrs) evening seminar with interesting title ‘Optimisation of product development using PTC Creo’ This was my first seminar in Navi Mumbai. Mostly, we know Pune, Chennai or Bangalore as industrial hubs and get to see large audience attending such seminars. Navi Mumbai is not so known for its industrial area. But, this event really changed the perspective we see towards this place. It was great to see around 150+ attendees from prominent 60 manufacturing companies and engineering colleges like Mansons, ASB International, AMW Motors, BASF, Emerson, Devu Tools, Hitech plast, Terna Engineering College, Dutta Meghe College etc.
The event was conducted in Hotel Four Points Sheraton Vashi, Navi Mumbai. The Moldex3D, Tiwan was the sponsor for the event. The event started with the welcome note by Kratos CEO Mr. Anubhav Hazra and Mr. Parvinder Singh Patheja. The Kratos engineering has done excellent growth with more than 300 customers in India in less than 2 years. Mr. Parvinder Singh Patheja noted “We believe in customer-first, irrespective of organizational size or the location. We are always there to support our clients at every stage of their digital journeys for developing better products.”
Later, there was presentation by Mr. Hardhyan Singh Sohal, technical Manager, PTC. He gave an overview on latest Creo features. The event gave an opportunity for attendees to interact with the PTC’s top executives present at the event. Mr. Vinod Pallakkil (National Key Account Manager), Mr. Balaji Nambi (Regional Head), Mr. Hardyan Singh (Tech Manager),Mr. Shambhu Banerjee (Education Manager), Mr. Ashwin Sawant (Education Engagement head) .
Next, there were presentations by Mr. Vaibhav Mahajan (Moldex3D), Mr. Vatsal Naik (Kratos). It was nice to see good number of attendees from Plastic and Rubber product industry. Mr. Mahajan gave an overview on Moldex3D – plastic analysis tool. He gave a demo on how Moldex3D can help you carry out in-depth simulation of widest range of injection molding processes and to optimize product designs and manufacturability.
There was interesting Q&A session followed by the presentations. Overall seminar was great treat to design professionals in Navi Mumbai to get their answers from PTC and Moldex3D experts.
Audience were delighted to know how Mansons Panvel team( mansons.in) is using PTC Creo to design the world-class vehicle components during success story presentation.
Kratos CEO Mr. Anubhav Hazra during his thanks speech said “ Good attendance only confirms that Mumbai and Navi Mumbai companies are going through a right transition and there is a enthusiasm to implement software like PTC Creo and Moldex amongst them.”
The Kratos MD announced partnership with Taiwan based MSI workstation for design professionals (https://www.msi.com/product/workstation/) for its sales in India.
