The Machine Shop provides knowledge on the various lathes , special machine tools and their attachments and various operations performed on them. The major mabhine tools and equipment avaialbe are:
The Metrology lab houses instruments and tools to understand both experimental and theoretical measurements and determinations of uncertainty level in manufacturing products. Metrology lab is equipped with basic measuring instruments such as
The calibration exercises for the students make them find the standard error involved in the measuring instrument using a set of slip gauges. This lab extended its usage in the research for analyzing the surface roughness using a stylus and through image processing.
This lab imparts skill and knowledge on modular automation systems by implementing the automation skills achieved from the basics of PLC. This lab also consists of fluid power systems which contain basic pneumatic trainer kit, electro-pneumatic trainer kit, and hydraulic trainer kit.
The purpose of this lab is to familiarize the programming techniques in CNC part programming through Siemens NX Software Package. This lab is offered to both undergraduate as well as postgraduate-level studentsThe major Equipment are
This lab has two divisions namely thermal engineering and heat & mass transfer for the undergraduate students. This lab is equipped with Engine Testing Facility anddifferent types of IC engines to measure various parameters of engines. Cut section models of four-stroke and two-stroke engines are available to facilitate understanding of valve and port openings. Different fuel testing equipment is available to measure calorific value, viscosity, flash point, fire point, pour point of any fuel. This lab is also intended for the students to understand the various modes of heat transfer principles.
This lab is offered to the undergraduate students of different streams of engineering . The main purpose is to understand and demonstrate their knowledge gained from the fluid machineries. The laboratory consists of experiments related to flow measurements using different devices and related to losses in pipes. The performances and efficiency of various (Centrifugal, Gear, Jet, and Reciprocating) pump and various types of turbines (Peloton wheel turbine, Francis turbine, and Kaplan turbine)are also measured and demonstrated.
The Material testing Laboratory offered for undergraduate students to understand the metallurgical analysis techniques. The lab is equipped with metallurgical microscopes, hardness tests for different ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This lab also used to measure the mechanical properties of ferrous and non-ferrous Metals by performing tensile and impact tests.
The objective of the lab is to understand the static force and dynamic force analysis and to study the undesirable effects of imbalances in rotors and engines. The lab is also used to understand the concept of vibratory systems, their analysis, and the principles of control devices such as Governors and Gyroscopes.
Tribology is an important domain of science that deals with the behavior of interacting surfaces-associated practices, and mainly emphasizes on the phenomenon of friction, wear, and lubrication. Our surface engineering laboratory equipped with a pin on disc machine for wear analysis and optical microscope for wear track analysis. The pin on disc is used to characterize the tribological features of bulk materials, coatings and lubricants accurately. This lab is offered to research purposes.
The Design Appreciation Lab has products and subassemblies like Worm gearbox, pneumatic double acting cylinder, external gear pump, internal gear pump, centrifugal pump, rotary pump, and two-stage pump. These products are dismantled and re-assembled by the students. In this process, they learn the functioning of the product, materials used and tools with their specifications used for dismantling and assembly. This lab is offered for undergraduate mechanical engineers in the second semester itself.
CAD lab is offered to undergraduate and postgraduate students to get professional training on 2D & 3D engineering drawings using the latest version of software packages. Students also learn the structural analysis of various components. This lab consists of
This lab is offered as a central facility for all first-year undergraduate students and administered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This Engineering practice laboratory is equipped with bending machines, anvils, and welding machines to understand the principles and to fabricate various engineering components.
The friction materials Lab is established in November 2019.The lab is used to determine the wear rate of each brake pad at different brake disc speed and the applied force on the brake pedal.It is used to evaluate the braking effectiveness of each brake padin terms of stopping time.
