3D printing is a way of creating three dimensional (3D) solid objects 3D printing is done by building up the object layer by layer. Usually, 3D printers uses PLA a plastic filament, because it is easier to use and cheaper. Some 3D printers can 3D print with other materials, like metals and ceramics, but they cost too much money for most people.3D printers are useful because they can make new objects very fast, and are good at making them very detailed. This means an engineer can test a lot of new designs and not have to wait for someone else to make them. They are also useful for fixing parts made of plastic, and for making toys, figures, and models. There are a lot of people who print 3D objects at home. In this students can manufacture the components by means of 3D printing.
Bosch Diagnostic Lab
The main objective of this Bosch Diagnostic Lab to transfer the current automotive technologies to Students, trains students on the diagnosis, service, repair and troubleshooting of a modern automobile. It is equipped with BOSCH Vehicle diagnosis system, BOSCH Vehicle air-conditioning maintenance system and motion logic drives. The benefit of this Diagnostic Lab enhances their competency levels for better employability. Bosch Diagnostic Lab Established with Bosch Air conditioning service equipment, Wheel balancer, Tyre changer and Head lamp aligner, through this diagnostic lab the students to validate their knowledge and skills at a professional level with internationally reputed BOSCH certification.
SPRUTCAM / CNC TRAIN
CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter. In industries the CNC machines are used for various machining operations like turning, drilling and milling. The complete process of CNC machining depends on CAD and CAM. The word CAD stands for Computer Aided Design whereas the word CAM stands for Computer Aided Manufacturing. With the help of CAD, one can make 3-D design of the object which anyone have to make and with the help of CAM that design is converted into reality.
ANSYS is Mechanical finite element analysis software is used to simulate computer models of any structures or machine components for analyzing strength, toughness, elasticity, temperature distribution, electromagnetism, fluid flow, and other attributes. It covers an enormous range of applications and comes complete with everything one need from geometry preparation to optimization and all the steps in between. In ANSYS, one can simulate by means of rigid body mechanics and dynamic analysis. The Rigid Body is capability to solve mechanisms rapidly, whereas dynamic analysis includes, linear dynamics, modal, harmonic and random vibration.
AUTOCAD / CREO / SOLIDWORKS
AUTOCAD / CREO / SOLIDWORKS are basic designing software for mechanical engineers. It provides flexible and user friendly features with the tools to design the applications and document the workflows. This involves aggregate and import models for the formats and usually allows the design to get created without any change in source model. It provides tools to provide the formats by detailed designing the layouts and drawings using the views automatically. It also has the provision to create detailed design layouts and views can be drawn automatically using the source model. AutoCAD is important for engineers to produce 2D and 3D designs. Drawing designs manually consumed enough time. With the software, one can increase the efficiency of their work. The quality of designs improves on using the software.
In these software the students will learn about the various symbols, selection of standards in bolts, nuts, screws, keys etc, Limits, Fits and Tolerance of individual dimensions, 2D and 3D models are drawn using the tools like Editing, Dimensioning, Layering, Hatching, Block, Array, Detailing, Sketcher, Datum planes, Protrusion, Holes, Part modeling, Extrusion, Revolve, Sweep, Loft, Blend, Fillet, Pattern, Chamfer, Round, Mirror, Section and Assembly. The assignments are given to make 3D parts of Bearings, Joints, Couplings, Engine parts and miscellaneous machine components.
