Recently a ‘Modular Automated Production System (MAPS)’ has been installed in the lab which includes SCARA robot and weighing & palletizing module. This system demonstrates the latest automation practices used in the industries. The project has been funded by AICTE, New Delhi under MODROBS scheme.

10. Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Lab: This lab have ‘Vapour Compression Refrigeration Cycle Test rig’ ,’Mini Air Conditioning Test Rig’, and ‘Water Chilling Plant’.

11. Research and Development Lab: This laboratory has set up of ‘Variable Compression Ratio Test Rig’ for petrol engines to carry investigation of different alternative fuels. The laboratory is also equipped with, ‘Exhaust Gas Analyzer’ to test emission levels and facility to determine calorific value of volatile fuels. Additional accessories are attached to the engine to change gas mode like LPG and CNG. Experimental set ups of student projects are also preserved in this lab.

PROJECT WORK

Final year students, normally in a group of five , are assigned project work under the guidance of one faculty member. This works are done in the fields of solar energy, bio-gas, cryogenics, computerized solutions of mechanisms, Robotics etc. These projects involve both investigation, analysis and design with fabrication of designed components. Now, as per the revised syllabus ‘Mini projects’ are also fabricated at second year level.

Projects fabricated
  • Sugarcane harvesting Machine
  • Universal seed sowing machine
  • Four stroke carbureted engine using alternate fuel
