Engineering Workshop Lab is well equipped with all basic requirements of components. Beginning with the Industrial Revolution era, a workshop may be a room or building which provides both the area and tools (or machinery) that may be required for the manufacture or repair of manufactured goods. Workshops were the only places of production until the advent of industrialization and the development of larger factories.
Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulic Machinery Lab is well equipped with all basic requirements of components. In hydraulics laboratory there is a range of experimental set-ups through which students are given a very good demonstration to understand the various methods of measurement of flow rates, capacity & velocity of water in tanks, closed pipes and open channels. In addition, in this laboratory, students get an experience to understand the fluid properties like surface tension, temperature, viscosity and they get a practical experience of measurement of these properties, which are very important for the selection of pumps, pipes and its specifications like material, size & slope. It is quite useful for design of drainage channels and open channel.
CAD/CAM Lab is used to gain practical experience in handling 2D drafting and 3D modeling. This lab contains the features of CNC Machine and exposes students to modern control systems (Fanuc, Siemens etc.) This lab includes computers (i3 processor, 4 GB Ram, Standard Graphics Card, 1TB Hard Disk) with CAD/CAM software. The facility has been designed and structured to take care of professional through AUTODESK certification programs for students, consultancy for industries and to also carry out globally outstanding research. The CAD/CAM lab contains advanced software versions CAD/CAM/CAE/CFD.
The experiments conducted in the heat transfer lab help the students to understand all the three modes of heat transfer, namely conduction, convection and radiation practically. These experiments also pave way for inculcating certain innovative skills in the students making them to use the above experimental setups as starting point to take up higher level experimental studies in Heat Transfer.
The primary purpose of the laboratory ‘thermal engineering’ is to show students the experimental methods on thermal energies on various engines and demonstrate their operational procedures. These values can be further used to determine other fuel properties. In order that students have a fairly good understanding of the theory underlying the experiments, the entire course is designed such that classroom lectures precede lab work.
Machine Tools laboratory is aimed at providing an introduction to the Know-how of common processes used in industries for manufacturing parts by removal of material in a controlled manner. Auxiliary methods for machining to desired accuracy is covered. The emphasis throughout the laboratory course will be on understanding the basic features of the processes rather than details of constructions of machine, or common practices in manufacturing or acquiring skill in the operation of machines.
Production Technology lab encompasses Metal casting, Welding, Press working and processing of Plastics. It inculcates knowledge and skill to the students starting from preparing a wooden pattern to completion of a casting which also comprises different Sand testing techniques. Also, students can understand broadly Welding and press working skills employed in Industries. & analyze the different manufacturing process and their use in industry for component production
In this laboratory, students will have the opportunity to apply loads to various materials under different equilibrium conditions. The student will perform tests on materials in tension, compression, torsion, bending, and impact. These conditions and/or constraints are designed to reinforce classroom theory by having the student perform required tests, analyze subsequent data, and present the results in a professionally prepared report. The machines and equipment used to determine experimental data include universal testing machines, torsion equipment, spring testing machine, compression testing machine, impact tester, hardness tester, etc. Data will be collected using Dial indicators, extensometers, strain gages and strain indicator equipment, as well as load and strain readouts on the machinery and graphing capabilities to print relevant plots for analysis.
Instrumentation is the development or use of measuring instruments for observation, monitoring or control. An instrument is a device that measures a physical quantity, such as flow, temperature, level, distance, angle, or pressure. Instruments may be as simple as direct reading hand-held thermometers or as complex as multivariable process analyzers. Although instrumentation is often used to measure and control process variables within a laboratory or manufacturing area, it can be found in the household as well. The control of processes is one of the main branches of applied instrumentation. Instruments are often part of a control system in refineries, factories, and vehicles. Instruments attached to a control system may provide signals used to operate a variety of other devices, and to support either remote or automated control capabilities. Students will also be able to measure and calibrate physical quantities like pressure, temperature, speed, displacement, flow, and vibration in real time engineering applications using transducers with amplification circuits.
In this laboratory, students will have the opportunity to understand and analyze the balancing of machine parts statically and dynamically. The dynamic behavior of moving objects will also be analyzed. The basic mechanisms for mobility and forces that are acting, analyse and synthesise the machines.
Metallurgy involves studying the physical and chemical properties of metallic elements and their alloys, which are combinations of different metallic elements. Metallurgical labs contain high tech equipment to perform important tests. Some of these tests include: failure testing, corrosion testing, chemical analysis, fatigue testing, metallography, and weld testing.
You can’t manage what you don’t measure”, Metrology Laboratory goes with this saying. Metrology is the science of measurement. Testing is the technical procedure consisting of the determination of characteristics of a given object or process, in accordance with a specified method. The laboratory is to equip students with knowledge on common linear and angular measuring instruments meant engineering measurements. In science and engineering, objects of interest have to be characterized by measurement and testing. Measurement is the process of experimentally obtaining quantity values that can reasonably be attributed to a property of a body or substance.
