Traditional Day 2016

This year “Shiv Jayanti” was celebrated on February 19th and also Traditional Day in ZES’ ZCOER. The response was simply amazing with nearly 90% of the students and the staff turning up in traditional attires, representing different cultures. It was a welcome change for all the departments, who looked wonderful in the colourful sarees, sherwanis, kurtas, etc. In this event all SE, TE, BE students were actively participated.

Lecture Session on ‘Opportunities in Welding Technologies’

The Department of Mechanical Engg., ZCOER have organised Lecture Session on ‘Opportunities in Welding Technologies’ by Dr Gauranga Datta (Ex Chancellor, KL University) On 20th February, 2016. This Lecture was result of the constant encouragement and support of our dynamic Executive Director, Prof. Jayesh Katkar. ‘Ador Welding Academy, Pune’, was co-organiser for the same.

Dr. Gauranga Datta
Professor Gauranga Lal Datta has been a distinguished academician. He received B Tech (Mech Engg), M Tech (Foundry Engg) and Ph D (Welding Technology) degrees from IIT Kharagpur. He served the alma mater for close to four decades in different teaching and administrative positions including Professor, Head and Dean. After this, he continued to serve the Institute as an Emeritus Professor. Then he moved to KL University, Andhra Pradesh as the Founder Vice-Chancellor in 2009, served the same University as the Chancellor from 2012-14.

Lecture Contents:
During this lecture Dr. Gauranga Datta spoke about History of Welding and Various Welding Technologies. Welding offers enormous amount of opportunities in the field of fabrication of Structures, Process Plants, Road and Transport, Delicate and Precise Aerospace Applications,etc. The budding engineers can enhance their skill in this field and explore the opportunities. The opportunities are available as an employee and entrepreneur. Also the welding experts are in high demand in India and abroad.
The session was very informative. It was conducted in an interactive mode. The participating students and faculties of Mechanical Department got benefitted by the same. The lecture was concluded with Question-Answer Session. Dr G. L. Datta spontaneously responded to the questions of curious students.

Skill Training At AdorWac (Ador Welding Academy):
Ador Welding Academy , Pune provides an architecture and layout for the premises; Equipment, accessories & consumables for delivering the welding practice courses; Class-room facilities; Training Modules duly documented for course content, Instructional design & pedagogic techniques, including assessment and certification methodologies. Specific modules for Training the Trainers are also delivered.

The lecture began with felicitation of Dr G. L. Datta and Mr Harshal Borole, AdorWac by the Prof Jayesh Katkar, Executive Director and Dr A. N. Gaikwad, Principal ZCOER respectively. Prof Jayesh Katkar enlightened the audience with his vision and motto behind organising such lectures on ‘Zeal Campus’.

Prof A. R. Suryavanshi, HOD Mechanical – Shift I, Prof. B. D. Aldar, HOD Mechanical – Shift II, Prof. A. U. Gandigude, Workshop Superintendant, UG / PG Students and Faculty members of Mechanical Department have participated in this session. Prof. J. K. Shaikh Co-ordinated the programme and Prof A. U. Gandigude delivered Vote of Thanks.

Training on ‘Simulation using MasterCAM’

In a continuation to ‘Simulation using Simufact’ a hands on Training on ‘Simulation using MasterCAM’ was organised by Department of Mechanical Engg., ZCOER in association with ‘Onward Technologies, Pune’ for the Students of ME (CADME & Design) and. This was successfully conducted on 12th & 13th February, 2016.
Machine and G-Code Simulation:
Machine simulation provides you with additional layers of visualization, so that you can zoom in and zoom out at will, to observe everything that will happen during your machining process. You can move the simulation along very quickly in program segments where you are certain that the part, tool, holder fixtures, and peripheral devices (e.g. robots) are in no danger of colliding. When everything is happening in a confined space, you can slow the simulation down to observe these interrelated movements in slow motion or step through them in block fashion
G-code simulation involves a much more extensive modeling process, which is typically done by the software provider.
This program was scheduled for Two Days with:
• Basics of CAM Programming (Turning, Milling and Multi-Axis Machining)
• Use of Simulation in Machining
• Machine Simulation with G-Code Simulation for Turning
• Machine Simulation with G-Code Simulation for Milling
• Tutorials and Exercises
On receiving feedback from the attendees, the programme was indeed helped the students and faculties to use this software for their further research work and problem solving.
College had fully sponsored this course for the benefit of the students and the faculty members.
The resource person for the said training was Mr Rahul Dhage from Onward Technologies, Pune and co-ordinated by Prof. J. K. Shaikh, PG Coordinator (CADME).
