The Textiles Technical Training Institute (TTTI), set up jointly by the Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) and PSG institutions, exclusively for training fitters and electricians at Nilambur, Coimbatore, is all set to commence on 25 March, 2015.
 
The textile industry has been facing acute shortage of labour and more so the technicians, both mechanical maintenance, electrical and electronics maintenance, said SIMA chairman T Rajkumar in a press release.
 
He said the textile projects particularly weaving and spinning have become highly capital intensive and therefore, SIMA had set up the institute jointly with the premier institution - PSG College of Technology to meet the urgent needs.
 
Lakshmi Machine Works donated the entire range of plant and machinery for the pilot mill located at Nilambur. Rajkumar said all the leading textile machinery, spares and accessories manufacturers and service providers have come forward to share their technical expertise and train the technicians to meet the needs of the individual mills and maintain the machinery properly.
 
TTTI would offer short, medium and long term programmes, and to start with it plans to offer three to five days technical training programme for fitters. The first batch of the four-day programme for the spinning preparatory fitters commencing on 25 March, 2015 would cover all the machines, accessories and equipments.
 
Rajkumar said faculty from PSG College of Technology and professionals from Lakshmi Machine Works, VETAL, Lakshmi Card Clothing, Habasit Iakoka, Textech, Voltas, SKF and ATE would train the technicians.
 
He urged the textile mills to make use of all the services provided by TTTI and upgrade the skills of their technicians, which is the need of the hour to remain competitive. (RKS)
