Engineering Practices Laboratory
Workshop practises have become important in the industrial environment to produce products for the service of mankind. The knowledge of manufacturing practices is highly essential for all engineers and technocrats for familiarizing themselves with modern concepts of manufacturing technologies. Workshop practices gives the basic working knowledge required for the production of various engineering products. It explains the construction, function, use and application of different working tools, equipment, machines, as well as the technique of manufacturing a product from its raw material. Considering the general needs of engineering students in the country and the fact that they hardly get any exposure to hand tools, equipment’s, machines and manufacturing setups, a basic course in manufacturing science remains a core subject for all the branches of engineering. The contents include exposure to bench work and fitting, smithy and forging, sheet metal work, wood and wood working, casting, welding and machine shop practices. Manufacturing processes are used for converting raw materials into finished products.
