To Enhance the Capability and global Competitiveness of nation’s Precision Machining Industry through Technical Services, Consultancy and R&D.
The Centre for Manufacturing Excellence (CME) was established in year 2001 with the purpose of supporting local industries to become more competitive through the right application of advance manufacturing technologies and Act as a Technology Demonstration Centre .to be a centre of reference for precision machining industries, research institutes and academic institutions in Sri Lanka. The main objective of CME is to act as an institutional mechanism to transfer the state of the art CAD/CAM backed up by CNC machining technologies for the benefit of small and medium scale industries and mould & die makers of Plastic, Rubber, Glass and Sheet Metal industry of Sri Lanka in particular.
