Block 2: Commitment to CIPsBlock 3: TAP ito shared testing platforms, manufacturing facility accreditation, R&D, Tech development, etc. – i.e. local resource localization. Some companies may not need supportBlock 4: International PartnershipThe role of the TACs includes advice to targeted industry sectors on market and technology trends, opportunities for R&D and business development partnerships, facilitation of industry exchange and skills development placements, etc.
Yield estimation tool - This tool is used firstly to optimise runner designs for particular castings, and secondly the yield information can be used as an input into the costing tool. Costing tool - The costing tool enables a foundry to accurately estimate its manufacturing costs through the various stages of the manufacturing operation.
TLP: Historical Overview• 2007: CSDP approved by Cabinet• 2008: TLP strategy developed – Main emphasis on Eskom and Transnet opportunities (~R450b)• 2010: Increasing no. of projects – Acknowledge technology development is also required (UBRD) – Initiated Foundry TAP programme• 2011-12: Public procurement & Infrastructure development increasingly becoming a central pillar in our industrialisation strategy 2
TLP Objectives• Increase the capability and scope of local production (reduced imports, create and save local jobs) – Assist local firms to improve their competitiveness (quality, cost, uniqueness, etc.) through provision of: • Technology Assistance Packages (TAPs) • Focussed sector intervention (Foundries) – Support focussed technology development • Technology/Product Development Grants 3
Broad elements of TAP (supply-side measures) Benchmarking and Technology Capability Evaluations Access to GAP Analysis Technology Platforms and Continuous Improvement Shared Technology Plan - linked to Strategy of Facilities Choice Access to Technical Expertise (High-end) Technical Skills Development Migration to higher level of Design and Tooling Technology Capability Support

Foundry TAP Programme summaryOutcomes• 24 foundry firms received TAPs.• 14 firms currently have contracts directly or indirectly to SOCs.• 5 firms secured new contracts during or after TAP programme.Highlights• RIFT Human Capital Development – Group composed of all young female engineers are at Freiberg University in Germany for their Masters Programme (Advanced Foundry Technologies). CPUT group of students will depart in October 2012 for Rwth Aachen and Rzeszow University, Poland .Internship Programme through Mintek for foundries.• Technical Expertise - Lean manufacturing principles implementation.• Yield estimation tool & Costing tool – Assist firms to cost products efficiently.• RPT Test Equipment – Is a tool or equipment that determines melt quality prior to pouring. (Enhanced during the TAP Programme to use compressed air). Before Test After Test RPT Test Equipment 11
