International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad

International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), established in 1997, is an Autonomous Research and Development Centre of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India with the main campus at Hyderabad and with operations in Chennai and Gurgaon. Surface Engineering, Ceramics, Powder Metallurgy and Laser Processing of materials constitute the four major thrust areas at ARCI. The Powder Metallurgy programmes are largely aimed at developing value-added products and exotic materials for the Indian industry. There is also significant focus on transformation of the otherwise mine burden to useful P/M products, energy conservation and development of permeable materials for varied applications. The activities in the field of Ceramics have been initiated to create new and advanced materials for high-tech applications. The programmes are primarily oriented towards developing alternative materials for better performance, substituting the import market for high temperature materials and recycling of scrap to produce engineering ceramic powders. In Surface Engineering, ARCI has been judiciously building up facilities to complement and enhance existing national capabilities in the field. The Centre has been continuously striving to provide most cost-effective solutions to combat surface degradation problems in the industry. This is being achieved through indigenization of coating equipment as well as by offering some of the institute's unique coating facilities for jobbing activities to permit the industry access to technologies not available elsewhere in the country. The activities are pursued through 11 Research Centres, with the main focus on the development of nationally unique technologies and application oriented programmes.
