The Laboratory for Manufacturing is an interdepartmental laboratory in the Engineering with three major goals:

  • The development of the fundamental principles of manufacturing systems, processes, and machines
  • The application of those principles to the manufacturing enterprise
  • The education of engineering leaders

The laboratory seeks to establish a rational foundation for manufacturing based on a systematic understanding of the complex interactions among the many areas of manufacturing. 


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Thermal Lab                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

The Thermal Lab was designed to conduct on various experiments performance experiments and an effort to test the efficiency of many of the experiments: The field of thermal engineering includes a lot of applications that can be classified as the combination of thermodynamics and heat transfer, such as IC engines, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The objective of this laboratory is to provide the student a good environment to understand some very important concepts and applications in the field of IC engines and refrigeration. These concepts are necessary to understand how the typical thermal devices work (refrigerators, air conditioning devices, car engines or steam engines).


                                                      Thermal Lab1                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

The objective of the lab is to perform experiments which are related to Heat Transfer and Mass transfer of mechanical subject in order to understand the behavior of Radiations,Conduction and Convection which students study in theory


                                                                                                                                                                                              Mech Strength Of Materials                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Enable the students to understand application of forces & their effects on different mechanical & structural member s in Mechanics.  The laboratory is operational with the latest equipments for the experimentation of different applications of Strength of Materials.  The failure behavior of the material due to various types of loads should be understood properly before suggesting a particular material for specific application. So in order to suggest a material, one should have sound knowledge in mechanical properties of materials. Mechanical properties like Hardness, Yield Strength, Ultimate Compressive Strength, Impact Strength etc. will give a clear idea of how a material fails under various types of loads.


Dynamics                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

This laboratory is mainly to give a practical exposure to the students who are indeed first step of planning theory of vibrations. Mechanical engineering systems invariably consist of moving parts. With ever increasing emphasis on high speed machines (for higher productivity), effects of accelerating/decelerating moving masses plays a significant role. This course aims to equip the student with fundamental knowledge of dynamics of machines so that he can appreciate problems of dynamic force balance, transmissibility of forces, and isolation of systems, vibrations, instrumentation and standards. The student is made to physically experience basic concepts such as normal mode vibrations, natural frequency, mode shapes, beat phenomenon, different types of damping.

Mechatronics is a system-level approach to designing electromechanical systems that merges mechanical, electrical, control system, and embedded software design. It represents an industry-wide effort to improve the design process by integrating the best available development practices and technologies to streamline design, prototyping, and deployment. If you design industrial machinery, equipment, vehicles, or other devices with moving parts and electronically controlled actuators, mechatronics technology may help you lower development costs, reduce risk, and produce higher-quality products. The sub modules like Robotics, Embedded Systems, and Simulations etc. are playing a vital role in industrial & house hold applications.
