Faculty Development Program (FDP) on “MasterCAM X9 Multi Axis & Mill – Turn’

A Faculty Development Program (FDP) on “MasterCAM X9 Multi Axis & Mill – Turn’ was organised by Department of Mechanical Engg., ZCOER in association with ‘Onward Technologies, Pune’. This was successfully conducted on 19th & 20th August, 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
  • Use of Simulation in Machining
  • Machine Simulation with G-Code Simulation for Turning
  • Machine Simulation with G-Code Simulation for Milling
  • Machining in Multi axis
  • Machining of Turn- Mill operations were covered
  • Handson training was conducted in MIlling Machine at Skill Development cell.

On receiving feedback from the attendees, the programme was indeed helpful for the faculties to use this software for their further research work and problem solving.

College had fully sponsored this course for the benefit of faculty members.

The resource person for the said training was Mr Rahul Dhage from Onward Technologies, Pune and co-ordinated by Prof. Adewar S. S, Prof Kulkarni O. K. , and Prof Petkar R.

The Government’s “Make in India” initiative has attracted large amounts of foreign investments to the country with a specific focus on manufacturing. Welding is a very vast Engineering subject which covers the creation of a simple fabrication structure like gate, from underwater welding to spacecraft components and the practice of welding is basic to building infrastructure in the country. It has different levels of complexities depending on whether it is used in power plants, railway coaches, aircrafts or spacecraft. This offers an opportunity for the engineers, and the welders, not only to learn about the welding skills, but also learn about the process of welding, and how it can be managed and improved, and new fabrication practices for complex materials.

There is lot of theory, research and development, career prospects and production related practices, which the engineers can develop. By Considering all these aspects of Welding Zeal Skill Center of ZCOER had developed a well-equipped Lab.It Includes Various facilities like Welding Simulator, Live demonstration Center, Shield  Metal Arc Welding,TIG Welding,MIG Welding, Multipurpose Machine, Baking Oven etc. This lab is developed jointly in association with ADOR Welding Limited, Mumbai and Skill Center, Zeal College of Engineering and Research.Prof.Aashish Gandigude (In charge of Excellence Lab, ZCOER) introduced eminent guests and briefed about the idea behind Ador center of Excellence in welding.

Dr.S.G.Dambhare, HOD, Mechanical Engineering, introduced eminent guests about other facilities at the skill center like Automobile Excellence Lab, Machining Excellence Lab, and Power Plant Lab etc.

The Lab was inaugurated on 18th July 2016 by Mr. Deep A. Lalvani (Director Ador Welding Ltd, Head CSR Committee Ador Welding Ltd, Mumbai).On this Occasion Mr.Ramankumar (Chairman Ador Welding Academy Pvt. Ltd, Pune) guided the students regarding career prospectus and huge opportunities in the field of Welding. Mr. Lalvani congratulated Zeal Education Society for providing such unique facility for engineering students.Mr.Sanjay Gandhi, Corporate Trainer from ASPIRE praised Zeal Education Society for developing skills in the field of Automobile Excellence, Machining Excellence along with Welding. Dr.S.G.Dambhare, HOD, Mechanical Engineering, gave the vote of thanks.

Recently team “ACCELERONS” participated in “Indian super carting Series 2016” organized by “Mahankal institute of Technology”, Ujjain, M.P.  Accelerons is a group of 15 students from SE.TE, BE along with faculty Advisor Prof. A.V. Karande. Event was scheduled on 8th -10th July 2016 at MIT,Ujjain. Based on our performance at International go-kart championship, organized by LPU, Punjab where we grabbed pole position in Endurance, we were directly allowed for Dynamic Round. Technical inspection was performed to check whether vehicle meets defined rules and safety measures for Driver. Team Received special compliment from FMSCI judges regarding our safety measures in vehicle. We successfully cleared Technical inspection in first attempt. Dynamic round consists of acceleration Test, Brake test and figure of eight etc. In acceleration test we took 10 sec to cover 60 m distance but based on our engine which is only 3.5 HP, we were considered as best among all the teams and hence we got top rank in that category. Brake test was followed by acceleration test where our vehicle took 8 m stopping distance. Lastly vehicle completed figure of Eight in 37 seconds. In Dynamic round, earlier it was scheduled to complete 3 laps with 2 liter fuel but due to continuous rain there was change in the rule. Now the vehicle has to run for one lap and winner for this was declared based on minimum time. Our vehicle completed track in one minute 40 second.

   Our team won “Best Acceleration Award” and also we are ranked All India 8th among 70 teams. We heartily thankful to Dr. S. G. Dambhhare sir,HOD(Mechanical Engg.) for allowing us to participation in event and extending workshop facilities for 24×7 for manufacturing and testing of vehicle. Also we thank Dr. A.N. Gaikwad, Principal, ZCOER for his guidance and support. We are grateful to Prof. Jayesh Katkar,Ex. Director, ZES for their continuous motivation and inspiration.
