MEF shop:
The basic workshop practice helps students to understand the basic skills required for fitting and welding. Since all engineers must not only know how to design products but also have a basic knowledge of how to make them, first year students of all engineering branches are made to undergo workshop practice. Students use various measuring instruments and tools to perform Sheet metal and welding exercises. The lab also has drilling and grinding machines along with carpentry and sheet metal tools to help students better understand workshop practice.

 

MMP shop:
An engineer must possess adequate knowledge of measurement techniques. Metrology and measurements constitute an important element in all laboratories for conducting experiments and for all types of control processes in the industrial activities. This lab provides the students an active learning environment for the measurement technologies used in production engineering field. Students use the laboratory to collect and analyze measurement data, evaluate measurement methodologies, and learn the capabilities and limitations of measurement technologies. The lab includes LVDT, Load Cell, Pressure transducer, Micrometer, Thermocouple, Slip gauges, Sine bar, Sine center, Bevel protractor, Profile projector, Lathe and Drill tool dynamometer and other equipments required for calibration and measurements.

MT Lab:
Engineers in general and Mechanical engineers in particular should have knowledge of properties of engineering materials and their applications. Different materials have different physical, chemical and mechanical properties and suitability. Testing the material for its mechanical strength forms an integral part of manufacturing. In this lab the students are exposed to the procedure of testing of engineering materials with help of Universal testing machine, various hardness testing machines (Rockwell, Brinell), Wear, Impact testing machines along with optical microscope required for metallographic examination of materials.
