Mechanical Engineering Workshop is a place where students acquire knowledge on the operation of various processes involved in manufacturing and production. The Workshop Practice course makes students competent in handling practical work in engineering environment. The workshop supports teaching activities in the institute by providing demonstrations of machining and other manufacturing processes and by manufacturing equipment used in teaching and research laboratories. Workshop staff assists students with all aspects of their designs, including material selection, design optimization etc. Mechanical Engineering Workshop is also involved in different maintenance/repair works for institute. The workshop in the institute has different shops viz Fitting Shop, Sheet Metal Shop, Welding Shop, Carpentry Shop, Machine Shop, Foundry Shop and equipped with many machine like Precision Lathe machines, bench grinders, centre less grinder, vertical drilling, Shaper, Slotter, Shear, Milling machines, MIG and electric arc welding, Induction furnace etc
INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE LAB & POLLUTION CONTROL LAB
The institute is equipped with high efficiency IC engine lab. The objective of I C Engine lab is to demonstrate the theoretical concepts taught in Automobile Engineering and to understand the power generation in an Automobile.
Some of the modern facilities available in the lab, helpful for carrying the projects and experiments. The setups of the lab are attached with computers which are equipped with software to take direct readings of various engine parameters.
COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING LAB
The objectives of Computer Integrated Manufacturing laboratory isto demonstrate the concepts of CNC part programming for simulation of various machining operations as well as to educate the students on Flexible Manufacturing System. The students are expected to write the CNC part programs using simulation package for simulation of machining operations such as Turning, Drilling & Milling and apply these learnings to automate & improve efficiency of manufacturing process.
FLUID SYSTEMS LAB
This lab is run in unification with the the-ory course ETAT 204 (Fluid System). This lab has different working models of pumps and turbines where the students can study the performance characteristics of those machines. Students can strengthen their basic understandings of working and applications of these machines.
They can study different types of pumps such as rotodynamic as well as positive displacement, different types of pump such as impulse and reaction turbine etc. Moreover use of sensor in measuring many mechanical parameters such as pressure, flow, temperature and RPM in those setups to impart a practical knowledge to the students for designing any experimental set-up. The lab runs closely with the lectures in such a way that experiments support the text covered in the class room.
FLUID MECHANICS LAB
This lab is run in unification with the theory course ETME 201 (Fluid Mechanics). It is an introductory course where flow behavior, fluid forces and analysis tools are introduced. The goals of the experiments include determination of forces generated when fluid flow takes place over a solid object, applications of the control volume approach, demonstration of the momentum and energy equations, viscosity measurement and engineering correlations. Intricate flow phenomena such as separations and transition to turbulence are demonstrated.
The objective of robotics may be more practically defined as the study, design and use of robot systems for manufacturing (a top-level definition relying on the prior defini-tion of robot). Typical applications of indus-trial robots include welding, painting, iron-ing, assembly, pick and place, palletizing, product inspection, and testing, all accomplished with high endurance, speed, and precision.
REFRIGERATION AND AIR CONDITIONING LAB
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning has wide applications for human comfort and in industries like food processing, transportation, medicine, etc. The lab in the institute is equipped with high end equipment to make the students learn about components and working of refrigeration and air condition cycles. The air handling apparatus has different components to control the temperature and humidity of air. Similarly, the refrigeration equipment is used to lower the temperature in a control volume and binary refrigeration apparatus can be used to obtain super low cooling in a chamber by varying different parameters. The results are analysed using real time data provided by the data acquisition systems in these equipments.
ADVANCED MANUFACTURING METHODS(AMM) LABORATORY
The Advanced Manufacturing Methods Laboratory is dedicated to help in advancement of manufacturing research, manufacturing education that will influence, attract and develop the future manufacturing workforce. Today manufacturing industries are at a crucial stage. There is an extremely expanding worldwide demand for the manufacturing of innovative high quality products and processes but simultaneously there is a parallel decrease in an interested and prepared workforce in India.
STRENGTH OF MATERIAL(SOM) LAB
The objective of the Strength of Materials lab is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials and structural analysis to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. In Strength of Materials lab the ex-periments are performed to measure the properties of the materials such as, tensile strength, compressive strength, hardness, ductility, impact strength etc.
Metrology is a science of measurement. Metrology may be divided depending upon the quantity under consideration into: metrology of length, metrology of time etc. Depending upon the field of application it is divided into industrial metrology; medical metrology etc. Engineering metrology is restricted to the measurement of length, angles and other quantities which are expressed in linear or angular terms. For every kind of quantity measured, there must be a unit to measure it. This will enable the quan-tity to be measured in number of that unit.
Pneumatics Trainer System:
A fluid power system is one that transmits and controls energy through the user of pres-surized liquid or gas. In pneumatics the com-pressed air is mainly used to do work by ac-tion a piston or vane. The correct use of pneumatics control requires an adequate knowledge of pneumatics components and their function to ensure their integration in to an efficient working system.
Hydraulics Trainer System:
The hydraulics training system from Mecha-tronics is high quality but low cost based sys-tem that can be used to cover hydraulics and electro hydraulics.
Mechanisms trainer, Advance pro-grammable controller.
Some major Equipment available in the lab is as follows:
Pneumatics trainer system.
Electro pneumatics trainer system.
Transparent hydraulic trainer.
Electro hydraulic trainer (Advance).
Advance programmable controller with PLC.
