In an effort to encourage research and development and nurture research activities, CIPET has created an outstanding research environment that
results in providing a perfect ambience for the aspiring researchers to pursue their goal. The research centers of CIPET across the country boast
of excellent infrastructure facilities on par with international standards that enable frontline researchers from around the world to actively
execute their mission. Recognized by Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR), Department of Science & Technology, Government of India,
CIPET has successfully accomplished many R & D projects in different disciplines in the field of Plastics Engineering & Technology. The strength of
CIPET lies in its ability to build and nurture sophisticated research facilities in-house. 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),
functioning at Chennai and The Laboratory for Advanced Research in Polymeric Materials (LARPM) at Bhubaneswar, are the two world class R & D
wings of CIPET, set up exclusively for initiating R & D in collaboration with the industry and the universities, both in India and abroad,
to develop working Prototypes, to find Solutions to Engineering Problems, and to conduct Micro-analysis on behavior of Materials,
Structures and Mechanical Systems.
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 Ergonomic Approach.
The Laboratory for Advanced Research in Polymeric Materials (LARPM) at Bhubaneswar concentrates on Bio polymers, E Waste Recycling, Polymer Composites & Nano composites, Characterization of Blends, Alloys, and Fuel Cells.
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.
CIPET has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with following world renowned Universities / Institutions for collaborative research projects; faculty/ students exchange programs and formulation of standards and specifications.
The outcome of the research works carried out at R & D wings has helped the Indian plastic industries to use the new generation polymeric materials and also to introduce newer plastic products in all the key sectors of Indian Economy. CIPET will continue to focus and develop newer materials & products, import substitution mainly aimed at reducing the cost and improving the cost to performance balance which can certainly benefit plastics and allied industries. Known for its accomplishments and path breaking innovations in the field of plastics, today CIPET is highly regarded as a research and development organization and continuously provides its expertise to solve some of the major issues faced by both the Government as well as the industry both within the country and across the globe. CIPET's expert scientists and engineers analyze the complex challenges with a combination of expertise, technology and innovation and successfully develop workable solutions. By actively conducting research activities and continuously formulating new scientific principles that can enable better usage of plastics both by the industry as well as the consumers, CIPET has made an indelible mark in the plastics industry across the world.
