These supplementary Industries, which too are continuously upgrading themselves technologically, vary from air conditioners to car stereos to number plates are Letter etchings. Another important set of industries linked with the automobile are bearings range of chemicals, greases, additives and sealants that keep the various part of the machine functioning smoothly, prolong the life of the vehicle or increase its fuel efficiency.
Of course, machinery for making auto components themselves constitute an industry. Seating systems, foams and machinery or handling material such as leather used for seat cushions are another connected industry. Then there are a whole range of hand tools of differing sizes and precision that are used either in the automobile assembly plants (which, however, are getting increasingly automatised or even robotised) or wielded by thousands of mechanics servicing operating vehicles, besides being offered to buyers of vehicles in a small kit. Relatively new arrivals in the Indian scene linked to automobiles include automatic garage doors and safety equipment.
The convertors, that are meant to combat pollution and also raise the fuel efficiency of vehicles, including two wheelers and cars, running on leaded petrol, as distinct from Catalytic convertors that are part of any new car which is run on unleaded petrol. These Convertors, based on MASER (microwave amplification through stimulated emission Radiation) technology, use base metals and hence are said to be highly cost-effective.
The ubiquitous computers are of course there, assisting in testing of part and components or in designing automobiles and its various internal structures. Last, but not the least, are financiers, and of course, information systems, including journals and internet sites, that focus on the automobile.
No wonder States and Nations vie with each other to attract global automobile major as a strategy of employment generation and wealth creation.
This Associate membership examination will be regarded as a qualification for a technician who is qualified by specialist technical education to work under the general direction of technologist who shall be a "Charter Engineering". The working professional who are passing the Associate Membership examination of this Institute are normally engaged in manufacture, service and maintenance of Automobiles, garaging equipments and systems at the designed performance level filling subordinate posts in private sector, central and State Government services.
The Society intend to expand its activities in addition to the examination in the way of conducting meeting and conference to create awareness and remedy on the present day problems, such as pollution control, traffic rules and development, Road Safety and other related matters in collaboration with Major Automobile Industries, Govt. sector and some International Organisation who are in the Automobile field by developing their contact through website. As first step the society circulating regular Bulletin to all their members. Through bulletin it furnishes all the details latest development and Invention in the Automobile Industry.
