The April 2017 edition of IPF features Special Sections on Fasteners, Adhesives & Sealants; Castings & Forgings/Dies & Moulds; and Paints & Varnishes. New materials and the quest for lighter products like automobiles to increase efficiency has revolutionised fasteners and increased applications for adhesives and sealants. Castings and forgings provide the building blocks for machine tools and infrastructure, whereas dies and moulds do the same for products. Corrosion and aesthetics are taken care of by paints and varnishes. The monthly edition of IPF is what every factory needs, to stay informed.
Industrial Products Finder (IPF), a pioneer industrial journal in India, was launched in 1972. It gives industrial manufacturers and exclusive dealers/importers of industrial products a forum to display their ware, in a medium that was to be made regularly available to the users of these products. IPF focuses on all industrial/engineering products and services, consultancies, repair and reconditioning services, industrial security and safety services, and of late, pollution control and environment protection services. Apart from products, there are also other regular features that complement the core activity – a capsule of important events and developments in the industrial sector, news on companies, projects, joint ventures and mergers, etc; a selection of articles written by experts in the field as well as academics; and information on all important trade fairs, conferences, seminars and training programmers.
