CIPET has successfully accomplished many R & D projects in different disciplines in the field of Plastics Engineering & Technology.
CIPET has been recognized by Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR), Department of Science & Technology and other
Government Departments / Organizations. Envisioned to be a Global R & D Hub, CIPET has established two exclusive R & D wings at
Chennai and Bhubaneswar. The Advanced Research School for Technology & Product Simulation - ARSTPS at Chennai focuses on Innovative
Product Design for Automobile, Aerospace, Medical and Packaging Industries, product and Tool Design Conceptualization,
E- Manufacturing of Prototypes, Rapid Prototyping for Lead Time Reduction, Reverse Engineering for Metal Substitution with
Aesthetic and Ergonomical Approach. The Laboratory for Advanced Research in Polymeric Materials (LARPM) at Bhubaneswar
concentrates on Bio polymers, E Waste Recycling, Polymer Composites & Nanocomposites, Characterization of Blends, Alloys,
and Fuel Cells. The Main Objectives of the R & D wings are to jointly collaborate R & D projects with the industry, and with
Indian and Foreign Universities, to develop working Prototypes, to find Solutions to Engineering Problems, and to conduct
Micro-analysis on behavior of Materials, Structures and Mechanical Systems.
Bangaluru is emerging as a hub in engineering design, R&D and product development for a number of global players from various segments including automotive, telecom, infrastructure, wind energy, etc. During the last few years sprawling industrial activity have been witnessed in and around Bengaluru mainly due to good eco-system, enriched talent pool and growing number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This in turn necessitated the need to set-up polymer research laboratory with modern equipment at the hub to support the Researchers, Academia, Industries to conduct application oriented research in the niche areas of Advanced Polymer Design & Development. The newly developed laboratory, APDDRL, can join hands with its trademark as R&D wing of CIPET to cater various research needs of industries and would provide great opportunity of using the facilities by the host laboratories, industries and academia.
The major objectives of the APDDRL are to carryout Research & Development activities in the area of polymer testing and evaluation, product evaluation & commercialization along with facilitating research scholars and Scientists to pursue Research programs. The R&D Centre shall be multifunctional "One-stop" facility consisting of full-fledged materials characterization facility with broad specialization in product development and simulation. The centre shall coordinate and provide centralized support and service to various academia and industries for their research requirements.
