UGI organized an Industrial Visit to Medha Engineers & Technology, Mohali for Applied Science students of UIET.
Objective: To learn about metal fabrication.
The students of B.Tech 1st year programme from applied science department undertook an industrial visit to Medha engineers and technology, Industrial area, Mohali on 1st Oct, 2014. Mr. Sarabjeet Singh from applied science supervised this industrial visit. Medha Engineers and Technology is a unit of Metal sheet fabrication. The students learnt about the production process of metal fabrication. He explained the technical aspects of manufacturing and fabrication of metals. Students learnt about that Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes. The supervisor of the production explained the process of cutting that Cutting is done by sawing, shearing, or chiselling, torching with hand-held torches; and via numericla control (CNC) cutters (using a laser, mill bits, torch, or water jet) and Bending is done by hammering and Assembling (joining of the pieces) is done by welding, binding with adhesives, riveting, threaded fasteners, or even yet more bending in the form of a crimped seam. Structural steel and sheet metal are the usual starting materials for fabrication, along with the welding wire, flux, and fasteners that will join the cut pieces.
He also told to them that Metal fabrication is a value added process that involves the construction of machines and structures from various raw materials. Large fabrication shops will employ a multitude of value added processes in one plant or facility including welding, cutting, forming and machining. These large fab shops offer additional value to their customers by limiting the need for purchasing personnel to locate multiple vendors for different services.
This industrial visit enhanced the student’s knowledge about metal fabrication.
Outcome: to know about the process of metal fabrication and process involved in it like- cutting, bending, and assembling.
