The video is uploaded in YouTube (a link is provided in the college website).
MICRO ELECTRO CHEMICAL DISCHARGE MACHINE (µECDM)
Electro Chemical Discharge Machining (ECDM) has been developed as a hybrid machining process to machine electrically non-conducting and conducting materials effectively and efficiently. The material removal is mainly carried out with melting and vaporisation under thermal energy from spark generated from tool electrode and partially by chemical etching under the presence of an electrolyte. In this process basic principles of EDM and ECM are combined to overcome the limitations of the individual process. The EDM and ECM can machine only conducting materials whereas ECDM can machine both conducting and non-conducting materials effectively and efficiently. Commonly machined materials in ECDM include ceramic, composites, semi conducting materials like silicon to higher level of accuracy.
To measure characteristics of the micro hole machined in terms of Material Removal Rate, Tool Wear Rate and Radial overcut. Also characterization of micro channels.
ECDM process has shown good machining tool for drilling of glass substrates stainless steel materials, composites and ceramics. Fabrication of intricate micro features, precise dies deep hole drilling , dressing of micro tools in grinding etc. In the course of Micro and Nano Manufacturing for S8 ME, the same instrument can be preferred.
The video demonstration of Micro Electro Chemical Discharge Machine (µECDM) is uploaded in YouTube (a link is provided in the college website).
MICRO ELECTRO DISCHARGE MACHINE
The EDM process involves a controlled erosion of electrically conductive materials by the initiation of rapid and repetitive spark discharge between the electrode tool and work piece separated by a small gap of about 0.01-0.50 mm known as spark gap. The spark gap is either flooded or immersed under the dielectric fluid. The spark discharge is produced by the controlled pulsing of direct current between the work piece and tool. Micro EDM and EDM are similar in principles, and difference occurs in terms of the energy range and tool which is lower. The resolution of axis movement and discharge energy are in micron ranges for micro EDM process. Micro EDM has shown as an effective tool in machining extremely hard materials hard tungsten carbide and alloys of steel.
To measure characteristics of the micro hole machined in terms of Material Removal Rate, Tool Wear Rate and Radial overcut. Also characterization of micro channels.
Micro EDM has been used as an effective tool in fabricating micro electrode, gear patterns with Tungsten Carbide materials, micro compressor, micro turbine impellers , high aspect ratio micro arrays, biocompatible devices from Magnesium etc. In the course of Micro and Nano Manufacturing for S8 ME, the same instrument can be preferred.
The video demonstration of Micro Electro Discharge Machine is uploaded in YouTube (a link is provided in the college website).
MICRO ABRASIVE JET MACHINE
Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM) has become an effective tool for machining hard brittle materials with high intensity flow of abrasive particles. The size of abrasive decides the accuracy of the process and fine abrasives are used for finishing operations.
In AJM material is removed with kinetic energy of loose abrasives from workpiece. The commonly used medium is air. Abrasive mixture is directed through nozzle to workpiece. The tip of nozzle and workpiece should be kept within a small gap. The distance between nozzle and workpiece, diameter of nozzle, angle of impact influence the machining process. As the jet strikes on the surface micro plastic deformation happens on the workpiece, on further impact the material get eroded by chipping action. The brittle broken particles getting separated on the surface of the workpiece are taken away by the carrier gas.
To measure the Material Removal Rate and Radial Overcut for a machined hole under given set of parameters.
The AJM has found process application in cleaning, etching, cutting, deburring and polishing on of ceramic materials which are brittle in nature and is much cheaper than tradition wet etching processes. Micro fabrication of channels and holes on PMM areas also carried out . AJM is also as an effective tool in microelectronic, optoelectronic devices and 3D structures on glass. In the course of Micro and Nano Manufacturing for S8 ME, the same instrument can be preferred.
The video demonstration of Micro Abrasive Jet Machine is uploaded in YouTube (a link is provided in the college website).
HOT AIR JET MACHINE
In hot air jet machining, the hot air jet issuing from a nozzle is impinged on the glass plate to be cut. The hot air jet or the X-Y coordinate table, on which the plate glass is placed, can be moved at the required speed. Any complex profile could be easily and economically generated in a single step by this method. A hot air jet is produced by using (a) a glass tube, (b) a compact hot air gun and (c) an electronic hot Air blower. In the preliminary experiments, a glass tube and a compact hot air gun are used. The compressed air is passed through the inlet passage and a hot air jet is obtained at the nozzle exit. The nozzles of different diameters are fitted (one at a time) at the outlet of the gun by varying the jet diameter. The required air flow rates and velocities are obtained by varying the supply air pressure on the system terminals. The air temperature is adjusted by adjusting the voltage supply to the electric coil with the help of a dimmer stat. The glass tube used for producing the jet can with- stand temperatures up to 400°C.
To machine the glass workpiece in required profile using hot air from hot air jet machine
Student will be provided an innovative method for machining of glass with hot air, which is a non-conventional machining process. The method can be used for machining of micro channels and micro features on glass workpieces. In the course of Micro and Nano Manufacturing for S8 ME, the same instrument can be preferred.
The video demonstration of Hot Air Jet Machine is uploaded in YouTube (a link is provided in the college website).
POSTER PRESENTATION OF MICHELSON INTERFEROMETRY
A simple Michelson interferometry, a non-intrusive technique, is aligned to detect the temperature distribution. Interferometric measurement of temperature utilizes the refractive index variations in a medium due to temperature dependent density distributions. Temperature distribution measurement of a candle flame is measured by Michelson Interferometer at Mechanical measurement lab of SJCET Palai. This poster is demonstrated in department website.
To measure the temperature distribution in a flow field using non-intrusive technique. Laser interferometric measurement by Michelson interferometry is used to capture the fringes in the flow field.
For small flow field like heat sinks, heat dissipating devices flame,heater, the intrusive techniques such as thermocouple intrusion is disturbing the flow field while taking the measurements. This non-intrusive technique is not disturbing the flow field while taking the measurements. So that the accurate values/measurements are obtained. In the course of compressible flow for S7 ME the same measurement technique is mentioned.
POSTER PRESENTATION OF CYLINDRICAL HEAT PIPES
Heat pipes are basic gadgets which are utilized to exchange heat starting with one area then onto the next, utilizing an evaporation-condensation cycle. Heat pipes are alluded to as the “superconductors” of heat because of their quick heat exchange capability with low heat loss. A poster presentation of cylindrical heat pipe is demonstrated in department website.
• To determine the thermal characteristics of cylindrical heat pipes using alumina-water nanofluid.
• To determine the temperature distribution across the heat pipe.
Heat pipes can be used to transmit heat over significant distances with extremely negligible temperature drops and no external pumping power. Compared to the conventional heat transfer devices heat pipes are highly efficient with low energy consumption. In the course of heat and mass transfer for S6 ME , the introduction to heat pipes is explained. So this presentation will helps to get an exposure in the heat pipe technology and temperature measurement using data acquisition system..
