Special Machines Laboratory

Manufacturing and workshop practices have become important in the industrial environment to produce products for the service of mankind. The knowledge of manufacturing practices is highly essential for all engineers and technocrats for familiarizing themselves with modern concepts of manufacturing technologies. The basic need is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge of manufacturing processes and workshop technology to all the engineering students.
Machine shop is the heart and soul of mechanical engineering branch. Workshop practice is so important since ‘only practice can make the man perfect’. The students will undergo each skill exercises with remembrance, understanding and application with special emphasis on attitude of enquiry to know why and how for the various instructions and practices imparted to them in each shop. The Special Machines Laboratory provides necessary practical hands on training in conventional machine tools. This lab will provide an opportunity for the students to practice on various types of tools, manipulate and control various process parameters during machining processes.

The lab sessions are intended to make the students understand the different machining operations in machine tools such as milling machine, surface grinding machine, cylindrical grinding machine, shaping machine, radial drilling machine, gear hobbing machine, gear shaping machine etc. Students will be provided with a workpiece along with the dimensions of the required work to be machined as exercise. The lab exercises provide opportunities for direct study of the machine tools and their operations. Students utilize this lab for carrying out their project works and Model making.
