Thermal Engineering Laboratory:
The primary purpose of the laboratory ‘THERMAL ENGINEERING’ is to provide the students a right environment to understand some very important concepts and applications that can be classified as the combination of thermodynamics and heat transfer, such as IC engines, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. These concepts are necessary to understand how the typical thermal devices work (refrigerators, air conditioning devices, car engines or steam engines). The students are given exposure to various experimental methods of applications of thermal energies on various engines as well as to demonstration of their operational procedures, power generation, emissions and environmental impact, fuel economy and fuel composition effects on engine operation. This laboratory also provides an insight into the working of refrigerating system through model study. In order that students have a fairly good understanding of the theory underlying the experiments, the entire course is designed in a way that classroom lectures precede lab work. Students are advised to pay close attention in class so that they can perform well in the lab.
Advanced Manufacturing Process Laboratory (HI-TECH LAB):
The Advanced Manufacturing Processes Laboratory provides students with the opportunity to study and practice the nature and technique of manufacturing processes using modern day technology through sophisticated machines & instruments. Students can set up and operate machines, manufacture parts and inspect manufactured parts. The HI-TECH LAB includes instruments such as CNC milling, Robotic arm & UTM.
Engineering Metrology Laboratory:
The Precision Metrology laboratory is to provide the students with an insight into the world of measurement used in production engineering field through use of instruments such as vernier caliper, micrometer, height gauge, bevel protractor, sine bar, slip gauge etc. Students use this laboratory to collect and analyze measurement data, evaluate measurement methodologies, and learn the capabilities and limitations of measurement technologies. The students are exposed to different methods and instruments which can be used for linear and angular measurements, geometrical parameters (like surface finish, Squareness, Parallelism, Roundness etc ..) and the use of gauges and system of limits, Fits, Tolerances etc. are often required to be dealt in detail by diploma technician on the shop floor. The knowledge of the subject also forms the basis for the design of mechanical measurements systems, design & drawing of mechanical components.
Mechanical Work Shop:
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. Mechanical Engineering Workshop is also involved in different maintenance/repair works for Institute. Mechanical Engineering workshop includes the following : Machine Shop, Fitting Shop, Carpentry Shop, Welding Shop, Foundry Shop.
The CAD/CAM Laboratory intends to make the students to be able to understand and handle design problems in a systematic manner, to gain practical experience in handling 2D drafting and 3D modeling software systems and to gain practical experience in handling 2D drafting and 3D modeling software systems. They also understand the concepts G and M codes as well as manual part programming
In Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) Laboratory, different jobs are accomplished with the help of CAD CAM Design Tools Software, CNC Mill & CNC Lathe Software(CATIA,DELCAM etc)These software are very useful for an engineering student. Students are required to design and manufacture different types of objects.
Advanced Strength Of Materials Laboratory:
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 students through a series of experiments as properties of the materials are very important in the process of designing the durable components / machines / structures etc. Mechanical engineers are mainly concerned with the mechanical properties like strength, ductility, hardness, brittleness, toughness, creep, fatigue strength of the materials. These properties play an important role for the structures and components that are intended to sustain various type of loads under the given service conditions. In this laboratory the experiments are performed to measure the properties of the materials such as impact strength, tensile strength, compressive strength, hardness etc.
Major Equipments in this laboratory:-
- Universal testing machine,
- Impact testing machine,
- Brinell hardness testing machine,
- Rockwell hardness testing machine,
- Differential axle and wheel,
- Worm and worm wheel,
- Friction Apparatus etc.
