Design & Analysis of Structures of Industrial machines - IMTMA/D010

Programme Background

The Structure of the Machine plays an important role as it forms the basic foundation and it has to rigid enough to take various types of load under unfavorable conditions. The structure of the machine has a decisive influence on the three main parameters that define the capabilities of a machine, viz. motion accuracy, productivity of the machine and the quality of machining. Though Cast Iron and Steel are the most common materials for structures, new materials like Polymer concrete, Granite and Hybrid materials are finding increasing applications. Traditional designed machine structures were heavy and the design cycle is long. Today FEA/FEM tools are being used to perform analysis of machine structure parts leading to material & cost savings, optimization of the structural performance as well as shortened design cycle time.

Focus Areas
  • Design considerations for moving and non moving structures wrt rigidity
  • Modular design concept for structures
  • Thermosymmetric structure design
  • Criteria to decide welded or casting for the structures
  • Latest trends in the structual material for high end machines
  • Recap Fundamentals of FEA/FEM
  • Role of FEA in machine structures; Types of FEA – Static, Thermal,etc.,
  • Demo using ANSYS
  • Interpretting FEA reports
  • Optimising design after FEA
  • Case studies

Our Initiatives

Productivity Institute

The need for Productivity Institute

  • Is your work place suffering from poor productivity?
  • Do you feel that supervision is weak on the shop floor?
  • Do your shop floor personnel find it difficult to achieve targets?
  • You have the machine in place, but not the men to optimize usage?
