Center of Excellence in Automation Technology
Name of Instrument: FANUC Robot ARC Mate 100i MODEL B
Robots are the programmable machines which executes the automation. Robots use sensors and actuators to interact with the physical environment. As they are reprogrammable hence those are more flexible than single functioning machines. In industrial automation mostly robots are used in collaborative manner to carry out function exactly as a human or even more effectively than humans.
Typical applications of robots include welding, painting, assembly, pick and place for printed circuit boards, packaging and labeling, palletizing, product inspection, and testing; all accomplished with high endurance, speed, and precision. They can assist in material handling.
Machining Excellence Center (CNC/VMC)
About Machining Excellence Center:-
Machining Excellence Center is being provided by the Zeal College Of Engineering & Research, Pune a group of “Zeal Education Society”
Our centre is dedicated towards reducing the gap between current academics and industry expectation in the area of Mechanical Production by providing them the best industrial practices, thus generating skill based and competent Mechanical Engineers. This Hands on Training course-ware is generated to develop those engineers who are willing to learn industry oriented software application and problem solving approach.
The Hands on Training course is designed by considering Engineering Design & Manufacturing of the parts, after completion of the course candidate will be able to match the industry expectations in there profession.
Every year we are conducting Hands on training in this Machining excellence center to enhance their practical skills and to make ready for industry 4.0 revolution.
Hands on training Details:
1) Machine information in detail.
2) Preparatory (G code) & Miscellaneous (M code) related to part programming.
3) Part Programming
4) Tool information and Machining Parameters
5) Simulation by using Do NC Software
6) Actual Machining by using CNC Lathe machine
Course Objective of the laboratory/experiments:
- To understand constructional features & working of CNC machine.
- To study basic CNC programming and identify parameters for material and use basic setup techniques.
- To understand Preparatory (G code) & Miscellaneous (M code) related to part programming.
- To simulate the part program on the simulator.
- To execute actual operation of CNC machine.
Course Outcomes of the Laboratory/experiments:
- The student will be familiar with the different parts & working of CNC machine.
- The student will be able to write basic CNC programming with initial setup related to part programming.
- The student will be able to write the Preparatory (G code) & Miscellaneous (M code) program.
- The student will be able to execute the part program on simulator.
- The student will be able to perform the program on machine.
The CNC machine comprises of the computer in which the program is fed for cutting of the metal of the job as per the requirements. All the cutting processes that are to be carried out and all the final dimensions are fed into the computer via the program.

Smartrun CNC Lathe
The CNC Machine having latest Fanuc CNC system and 8 station turret. CNC machine is two axis machines (X & Z axis). CNC lathes are able to make fast, precision cuts, generally using indexable tools and drills. They are particularly effective for complicated programs designed to make parts that would be infeasible to make on manual lathes. They are able to translate programs consisting of specific numbers and letters to move the tool to various locations and depths by using Preparatory (G-code) & Miscellaneous (M-code) codes.
VMC (Vertical Machining Centre)
CNC mills have many functions including face milling, shoulder milling, tapping, drilling and some even offer turning. Standard linear CNC mills are limited to 3 axes (X, Y, and Z). CNC lathes have similar control specifications to CNC mills and can often read G-code & M-code also
Do-NC Simulation Software
Do-NC is CNC machine simulator software, designed to provide competency in operating CNC machines. Like a flight simulator, it enables a trainee to learn machine operation without an actual machine. Trainees can safely and efficiently practice machine operating skills on a PC, and get ready to operate real CNC machines in a very short time. Do-NC software having following characteristics;
- Learn operation for lathes and machining centers.
- Learn operation of popular CNC systems and control panels.
- View machine simulation in 3D graphics with dynamic rotation, zoom, pan, etc.
- Learn to set tool and work offsets setting.
- Learn program editing, console operation.
- Improve realism by using touch screen monitors.
